Helpful is the third point of the Scout Law, and Cub Scouts are helpful through their community service projects. Did you know that your Cub Scouts can help even more people through the Joy Maker Challenge?
Hasbro and GenerationOn have partnered to create the Joy Maker Challenge. It’s simple. For every child and teen who volunteers between November 21st and December 23rd, Hasbro will donate a toy or game to Toys for Tots up to 1 million dollars’ worth.
The goal of the Joy Maker Challenge is to have 100,000 youth volunteers. Currently, they’re at about 1/3 of that. I believe Cub Scouts can help them reach that goal!
When we delivered our birthday bags to our local food pantry, we had another little surprise for Debbie, the sweet lady who runs the pantry. Thanks to the generosity of Hasbro, we donated 20 toys and games to help the pantry provide more than just food for the families in our community.
On the Joy Maker Challenge sign up page, the site will ask if you are pledging to do a project or if you have already completed it. Enter your information, the number of youth (under age 18) who participated and a little about the project. That’s it!
Wouldn’t it be great if every Cub Scout project from November 21st through December 23rd were entered? I’ll bet we would help GenerationOn get close to that 100,000 youth volunteers goal.
