A Cub Scout Gives Goodwill
Posted On: 2008-09-11
In a recent issue of Scouting magazine, there is a story about a Webelos Scout named Daniel Simon of Pack 381, Buffalo Grove, Illinois. Daniel earned a $750 gift certificate, and instead of spending the money on himself, he filled seven shopping carts with toys for other children who might not get anything that holiday season. It was a fine act of kindness and generosity. For Daniel, the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack aren’t just words; they represent a way of life. Especially the phrase, “A Cub Scout Gives Goodwill.” Wouldn’t it be a great holiday tradition if we all followed Daniel’s example and performed some special good turn for someone in need, giving a little goodwill in the process? That would bring a lot of joy to the people we served. It would also bring a lot of joy to us, knowing that we had done something to make someone’s life a little better. Think about what you can do to give good will and serve others at holiday time. What better way to build good memories that will last forever?
