Looks tasty, no?

Want some?  🙂  Today, I’m posting the cyber-equivalent of the break-room sign-up sheet.  While our family is much more the “just write a check and skip the selling” type, this year my oldest wanted to sell popcorn for his cub scout pack.  He is generally a bit shy and not usually one to knock on doors, so I thought this may be a good learning experience for him as well as a good fundraiser.

I have been so amazingly proud of him!   Not only has he conquered his apprehension, he decided to double his original goal.   He’s almost there.   It has been really fun to watch him, and we’ve had the opportunity to meet several former scouts as we’ve gone around neighborhoods.   (And I’ve not even once had to remind him to say thank you, even when he didn’t make a sale!)

If you haven’t had a little boy in blue ringing your doorbell, and you are interested in purchasing popcorn, it can be found at www.orderpopcorn.com .    Use TER7SW0 as your order key to give him credit for the sale. Orders are due tomorrow evening, October 30.

Absolutely no pressure.   No hard sell.   Just presenting the opportunity for those who are interested.   I’d love to surprise him with some encouraging comments as well!

Thanks from both of us!!

Until next time…
