Support Scouting in a small-big way

Small things you can do to support Local Scouts
Dear Scout Volunteers and Parents,

Many times, it’s the little things that make the biggest difference in a Scouts outdoor experience. When we asked Scouts about their favorite camp activity, one group immediately blurted, “catching spiders!” While this is not a big activity or something that is planned, it’s this type of small adventure that makes a big and lasting impression, one that makes Scouting fun! 

You can make a BIG difference for a Scout by doing a little thing like selecting the Greater Alabama Council as your AmazonSmile charity and/or by making a $25 donation. Your support of #GivingTuesday, providing scouting literature such as a Scout Handbook, will continue to extend the scouting program this holiday season and beyond. You can also go ahead and make a gift proactively, which will be processed on #GivingTuesday by just clicking here

In case you were not aware, the AmazonSmile program returns 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to a qualified charitable organization of your choice. This is a great way to support scouting beyond your annual charitable giving budget.  It doesn’t cost you any extra; the only difference is now you’re helping scouting every time you make a purchase.

Can you use Amazon smile with the Amazon app?Unfortunately, you cant use Amazon smile directly through the Amazon app, but there are 2 easy workarounds. … navigate to smile.amazon.com. On an iPhone, press the “share” button, then select “Add to HomeScreen.” On an Android device, press the menu button, then tap “Page”. 

Please review and feel free to contact our Senior Development Director, Clay Pruitt at clay.pruitt@scouting.org if you have any questions or need assistance to sign up.  

Thank you taking time to do the little things that will have a big impact for our youth. We greatly appreciate your support of Scouting during the Holiday Season and all year long!
