My son Nickolas is a Bear Cub Scout this year.  He is learning to earn his own way in life as well as in Scouting.  I am helping him by posting his request for your support.

Friends and Family,

Did you know you can help me earn my own way in Scouting and support U.S. Troops at the same time? Just click here to make a $30 or $50 Military Product Donation on my behalf; you’ll find the Military Product Donation under Military Donation once you enter the site.

From your purchase, Trail’s End will ship a variety of delicious popcorn treats all over the world to the men and women serving our country. 70% of your purchase will be returned to my council, my unit and my Scout rewards.

Online purchases help us fund fun, educational activities and help more kids experience all the things that make Scouting great.

Here’s that link again:
