    Not really - at least with BSA, profits from those sales go directly to individual accounts for each boy - so they can do things like go to Scout camp.
    The more sales they pile up, the more things they can go to without Mom and Dad having to pay for it. I'm doing it with my son, because frankly, I can't afford Scout camp.

    Seconded! In fact, if you do a little Goole-fu... you will see that the GSA cookie program is the REAL money grab!

There are other options, even if it's only you taking your kids into the woods and teaching them survival skills. We recently purchased a Golden Boy. It will go into service in the near future. Until then, I'll keep it well oiled
    Accosted? Exaggerate much? Queen Malice can't handle nor be bothered with a simple "would you like to buy some cookies" question.... Damn peasants!

    That's all fine and good, but you can't convince me it's not about the money, when you have fortune 500 companies donating, United Way (and how many other charities), and personal donations. I'm not saying that what you're saying is untrue, just that I still think it's about the money.
