So the Boy Scouts door to door popcorn sales I remember from my childhood are now... Just "Scouts"? Primarily "patriotic" cash donations? Run by a corporation and shipped directly to my house?
So... the kids are now... just photos in a database pressured to hit sales targets based on their parents social media link sharing?
This feels gross. But if you want to help(?) my friend's kid, free free :) https://www.trails-end.com/store/scout/9VWERMNI
ffs "UP TO 75% goes back to the Scout, the Scout's troop or pack, and Council"
so... 2% is <= 75%, ya? Lovely.
Boy Scouts of America gets an A- rating from my favorite charity auditor. While their top exec pulls $874K/year in compensation.
Scouting: Looks like its 85% white men, but they seem to be taking diversity goals seriously: https://www.scouting.org/about/diversity-inclusion/
Not sure where they're at on the religious diversity, gay leadership / membership, abuse allegation fronts.
Overall perhaps this is a more progressive organization that I was a member of in my youth?
