To help the Scouts earn their way to the Jamboree we have a great opportunity. You may have participated in the Popcorn sale with the council before, but we want to extend a special online sale to Jamboree Scouts to earn more money.
To get started selling head on over to https://www.trails-end.com/trailsend/scouts/login_register1.jsp and sign up today. Then use email, Facebook, Twitter, personal phone calls, and any other way you can think of to get the word out. People head online, order their popcorn, and it is delivered straight to their door. You earn 32%. The best part? You don’t have to move any boxes, collect money, or deliver product. It’s all done for you and shipped straight to your customers.
There is a short video to explain more here: http://www.trails-end.com/trailsend/dynamic_content.jsp?id=1800018

Guidelines for Fundraising:
In the examples listed above, individual Scouts and their family can raise money on their own. The one restriction is that you cannot wear your Scout uniform unless you are participating in one of the council fundraiser's (popcorn or candy). If a home troop wants to raise money for their Scouts they need to fill out a Unit Money-Earning Application and send it to
at the Portland Service Center at least four weeks before the fundraising event is to take place. Certain fundraiser's such as lotteries and raffles are not permitted.
