Why buy over priced Boy Scout popcorn?

Because you aren’t really “buying popcorn”. This fund raiser supports the Boy Scouts, one of America’s most effective programs for developing young men that are Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

Invest in America’s future

Your charitable donation is an investment in the young men and women (yes, girls can participate in some BSA programs) that will lead our country forward… and comes with some popcorn as a treat.

Where does the $ go?

73% of the purchase price goes to the local Scout organisations (Council, District, Troop, Scout). Troop 19 gets 30% of the purchase price, of which 25% of the purchase price goes directly to the Scout’s “Scout Bucks” account. Scout Bucks can only be used by the Scout to pay for things like Summer Camp, uniforms, Scout activities, Scout books, High Adventure trips like Philmont, Sea Base, Summit, or camping trips.

But I don’t even know R-man!

Yet…
Seriously. Leave a comment below saying Hi and ask for the latest on his journey though Scouting. R-man will personally reply and offer an update on his progress towards Eagle Scout.

73% of funds raised by Boy Scout popcorn purchases go to the local Scouting organizations.

About 3/4 of all money raised by the sale of Boy Scout popcorn goes to the local Boy Scout organizations. (73% actually)
School fund raisers typically give 10-25% of the cost of the item to the school. Much of the school based guilt-buying really just lines the pockets of the sales companies that leverage the cute little kids to tug the heart strings and elicit sales of grossly overpriced crap. Sure, schools need support too. However, schools are supposed to be supported by taxes. Boy Scout Troops get no funding at all from taxes. If we don’t support the Boy Scouts, then this organization with a stellar record of developing America’s future leaders will fade away.

Not that cute…

Girl Scouts sell cookies. Or do they? Some argue that they teach little girls that if you are cute enough, people will do anything for you. Not so with Boy Scout popcorn. Seriously. These guys are teenagers. They aren’t that cute any more. The boys aren’t selling sympathy, cuteness or tugging at heart strings. The boys are letting people invest in a program that develops the kind of young men that the world needs.

Why does everyone buy Boy Scout Popcorn year after year?

Because the Boy Scout program helps develop the type of responsible, moral, diligent young men that our country needs.
Sure, the popcorn is over priced. That is how fund raisers work. You pay too much so that there is $ left to fund the local Council, District, Troop, and Scout’s activities.
You get some popcorn to enjoy, the Boy Scouts use what they earn from your purchase to fund great programs for our boys and girls. (Yes, the Boy Scouts of America also have a Co-ed Explorer program that girls can join.) Everybody wins!

If you find it in your heart to buy some popcorn from R-man, a full 25% of the purchase price goes straight into R-man’s personal Boy Scout account with Troop 19 to pay for Summer Camp, monthly camping trips, etc.

The R-man story…

As a 9th grader R-man is getting to the age where many boys quit Boy Scouts to get a job, buy a car, chase girls, etc. However, his dedication and work ethic have been recognized by selection as Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and recent election to the Order of the Arrow (Boy Scout honor society). He has completed nearly all of the requirements to earn the Star rank and earned a variety of Merit Badges. R-man even completed a 100 mile backpacking trek in the mountains of New Mexico at Philmont Scout Ranch… a feat he was convinced he could not achieve. The Boy Scout program gave him the tools and support to push himself and achieve things he didn’t think possible.

At a recent Court of Honor (Boy Scout awards ceremony) I watched R-man stand in front of a packed room and present the 12 points of the Scout Law (with explanations of each) to the crowd. Before Boy Scouts this shy youngster had severe stage fright and would not have remotely been able to pull this off. So, while he is developing real skills to benefit his family and community (he recently earned the LifeSaving merit badge, for example), he is also learning that he is more capable than he realized.

If you would prefer to donate directly to R-man’s Troop or to his personal Scout Fund, use this secure PayPal “Donate” button to send a donation to Troop 19.
