Using Scrip Fundraising

Using Scrip Fundraising program really is the most easiest way to pay for your scout's yearly activities.  Wha't easy about it is that when you buy the things you normally purchase each month like groceries, gasoline, eat out and so on you will now buy gift cards for those things and a percentage of what you buy on the gift card will go to your scouts account.  A scout's account can be used to pay for Summer Camp, Outings, and other events.
 
You're gonna buy stuff each month anyway, why not earn money for your Scout at the Same Time!!!
