Popcorn

  • Popcorn sales is our primary fundraiser, with around 35% of the sales going directly to supporting our Pack, running until December 3rd

  • For Scouts that sell more than $250 in Popcorn, 10% of their total sales goes to their ‘Scout Account’ that can be used for future dues or other Pack Activities.

  • In addition, Scouts can earn Amazon Gift Cards as a reward, with the first $10 Gift Card being available at around $335 in online sales.

  • Any Scout that sells more than $500 in Popcorn will get to pie the Cubmaster in the face at the Christmas / Holiday Party in December!

Here’s how you get started:

  1. Go to https://www.trails-end.com and register your Scout

  2. Go to the Online portion of the site and create your online site profile (Picture / etc)

  3. You are now ready to sell!

How to Fundraise:

  1. First, the Scout needs to create their sales pitch, and it might go something like this:

    1. Hi, I’m Joe, and I’m supporting Cub Scout Pack 171.

    2. I’m working to raise money for (the Scout could pick something they are looking forward to, such as the Rock Climbing at Cliffhangers or the Stone Mountain State Park Campout)

    3. Would you be willing to help me?  We are selling Popcorn as our fundraiser.

  2. This speech could be written on their web page

  3. They can take a video of their speech for posting on social media, with the link to the fundraising webpage attached

  4. They can print the QR code for their webpage and go door to door if they like, reach out to friends and family through email, there are many options to get people to visit your fundraising page

  5. A quick tip: Shipping is free on orders over $55, and pricey for orders below that about.  For supporters interested in supporting for less than $55, consider recommending the $30 donation to American Heroes.  There is no shipping charge.

At the end of the day, this is intended to be a positive experience for the Scouts.  There is no expected level of sales, and no pressure for any Scout to sell any specific amount.  It’s all about each Scout Doing Their Best to support the Pack, whatever that is.
