Our Pen Pals program has about 1700 Scouting units signed up and scouts around the world are exchanging mail and electronic messages.
A new Postcard Exchange has just been started. Scouts across the USA can collect postcards from scouts in every state.
Pen Pals and Postcards can be used to fulfill requirements for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Girl Scout achievements, badges, and awards.
Communication, citizenship, and cultural awareness are all improved by interacting with other Scouts outside your local community.
There are girls and boys of all ages ready to swap postcards. We just need groups from more states to sign up.
Please talk with your scouts about getting involved and then sign up to get started.
I just gave away 3 gifts this morning in my Monthly Give-Away and I'm waiting for the winners to claim them.
You could win at the end of this month - if you just enter!
If you're looking for some gift ideas, here's a few to consider:
Reusable Handwarmers - Instead of throwing away hand warmers after one use, these reusable handwarmers can be used hundreds of times. They are inexpensive, easy, safe, and non-toxic. Plus, they are fun to explore the reaction taking place for STEM.
A perfect stocking stuffer.
Dutch Oven Cookbook - 66 favorite recipes used to promote dutch oven cooking in a troop.
Signed by the author and discounted.
Thru-hike Book - a book about hiking the 1,100-mile Ice Age Trail through Wisconsin. One woman's story about her speed hike and the other hikers she met.
A fun read for anyone you know interested in hiking something more involved than a Philmont trek.
Scout Shop Gift Card - Keep it simple and let the scout buy whatever he needs at the local scout shop, or online at scoutstuff.org
