1 Day for BSA, Scout It Forward!

1Day_Scout_it_forward_Rev2

Join us on April 25, 2017 for 1 Day for BSA, a day to give back and Scout it forward! 1 Day for BSA is a single day where Scouts, parents, grandparents, leaders, alumni, chartered partners, and local businesses can support Scouting online. Our council Facebook page will host a new video each day highlighting the impact Scouting has made in our communities. Each district will host a 1 Day for BSA event on April 25 and local businesses will donate a percentage of their daily sales to support Scouting.

Here’s how YOU CAN HELP us share Scouting’s story and make our program accessible to all youth in central Virginia! 

Help us spread the word about 1 Day for BSA by sharing the event on Facebook, posting photos on Instagram and Twitter. Change your profile photo to show your support and to share this important cause with your friends and followers. Share inspirational videos by using your cell phone to video short clips about what Scouting means to you or about the impact it has had on your life. Send your videos to cdragoo@bsamail.org. Visit our council Facebook page for your chance to win daily giveaways and to share daily videos of Scouting’s impact on our communities. Follow our progress on social media and help us keep the momentum going by using the hashtag #1DayforBSA!

There are many exciting days in the life of a Scout. One day putting on a Cub Scout uniform, one day advancing to earn a badge of rank, and one day camping under the stars. These one days add up to a lifetime of positive character and leadership development. April 25th will be a one day online giving campaign to support Scouting locally. http://hovc.org/supportscouting/1-day-for-bsa/. #1DayforBSA

Thank you for making this 1 Day matter to the future of our community!
