Ensure no Scout is left behind on Giving Tuesday

Ensure no Scout is left behind on Giving Tuesday
HAGERSVILLE—On November 17 and 18, 2018 the 1st Hagersville Scouts and Venturers went bush camping in Krauskopf’s bush. The Scouts and Venturers hiked approximately 3km into the bush with their backpacks filled with clothes, food and dishes. They built their own lean-to for shelter, cooked their own meals over a campfire and worked on their outdoor adventure skills.

Special thanks to the Krauskopfs for allowing us to use their bush and thanks to the Scouters Dave, Charles, Beverly and Evan for providing this great learning opportunity to these individuals. — Photo courtesy of Beverly Petheram.

HALDIMAND—On Giving Tuesday – November 27 – Canadians will open up their hearts and generosity to important causes that make an impact in the community, to the well-being of people, and to social movements that make a difference. Giving Tuesday originated in the United States as a movement to give back after Cyber Monday and has now migrated its goodwill across North America and around the world. This year consider a unique way to give by providing youth with the gift of adventure and self-confidence through Scouts Canada’s No One Left Behind program.

The program is aimed at reducing the barriers of participating in Scouting by subsidizing membership and related costs such as uniforms, outdoor equipment and camps. By donating to the program on Giving Tuesday, and throughout the year, Canadians will be giving youth and families who are experiencing financial hardship the opportunities to develop life skills, a healthy attitude towards the outdoors, build friendships and positive self-esteem, and engage in community service — all elements which are proven to have a significant impact in adulthood.
