Eagle Project, Youth Hope, Boy Scout Fundraiser Jordan, a Boy Scout, raised $900 online for his Eagle Project

Jordan is a Boy Scout fundraising for his Eagle Project for Youth Hope. Youth Hope is a non-profit organization that helps at risk or homeless youth by providing trust, hope, support, and education.

With the picnic tables and booths overtaken by graffiti, dry rot, and peeling paint, Jordan wanted to replace and renovate the outdoor seating. He planned on asking for help from Troop 341 and volunteers to carry out this project.

With only 3 weeks to raise money, Jordan was able to raise $900 for his Eagle Project by himself.

Emilia Girl Scouts Fundraiser Emilia, a girl scout, raised 204% of her goal online

Emilia is an 8th grade student that was working towards her Silver Award for the Girl Scouts. She has teamed up with Books in the Barn, an organization that gives free books to children every month at Emilia’s own family farm, to raise money for the event.

Emilia needed to raise $750 for the cost of library bags, gift cards for the kids who organize the book drives, and new books that don’t get donated often. Instead of using tired girl scout fundraising ideas, she created an online fundraiser for her project.

In just 2 and a half weeks, Emilia raised more than $1500, 204% of her original goal.
