Calling all Units! We need your help!
The Alamo Area Council, BSA wants to use its extra 2020 Camp Cards to show gratitude and appreciation to our local HEROES for keeping our communities safe during COVID-19 while also helping units earn EASY commission on last minute sales.
The plan is to recognize our first responders, health care professionals, teachers, and essential workers with donated discount Camp Cards purchased by supporters, alumni, neighbors, friends, and Scouts on behalf of Scouting.
Purchased cards will be donated to our local HEROES with an attached personalized message of encouragement thanking them for their service. All cards will be delivered by Alamo Area Council representatives to local hospitals, fire stations, police stations, schools, grocery stores, and essential worker businesses.
Frequently Asked Questions and how your unit can help!
We already turned in our cards. We don’t want to check anymore out.
No worries! You and your unit don’t even have to touch the cards. Cards can only be purchased online and will be delivered or mailed by a Alamo Area Council representative. We are using returned cards inventory to fulfill orders. All you have to do is click/ share the link. NO UNIT TRACKING, NO RETURNING, NO HASSLE!
How does this help my Unit?
On the “Cards for a Cause” link, there is an optional referral code section where you can add your Unit Type & Unit Number. Anytime your unit number is inserted into the referral code, 50% of the commission will be put in your unit account. You could earn money without even working.
Can anyone forward the link?
Any Scout, parent, relative, friend, neighbor, and alumni can purchase cards to donate to local heroes. If you purchase cards to donate, consider sharing the link on social media to encourage others to join in recognizing our heroes!
My unit didn’t register to sell Camp Cards in the Spring. Can we still participate? Will we get credit? Absolutely! The link is setup for everyone. If you do decide to share the link, make sure to advertise to put in your unit # in the referral code to get credit! Ex. Pack 123
Can I request to donate to a certain organization, school, business, or group?
Sure thing! In the specialized message box, if you would like to donate to Ex. Methodist Hospital nurses, Kerrville Firefighters, or Boerne Police, please let us know. Donations for specific individuals cannot be fulfilled.
We appreciate any level of participation by our Scouting community. Our hope is that not only will our dedicated front line workers get the recognition they deserve, but it indirectly helps get some positive public relations out this Fall. Thank you for all you do!
