Planting Seeds of Kindness Theme

Here is what the old program helps said about this theme: “Let’s spread Seeds of Kindness in the form of
multiple small service projects. Helping others encourages compassion and gives
boys the opportunity to see the bounty produced by spreading many small seeds of
kindness. The boys can discover that just as the large, strong oak tree came from
the small acorn, big things can happen from spreading small seeds of kindness and
charity. Conduct a food drive or collect coats and gloves for those in need; report your
hours to Good Turn for America. Work on the Citizenship belt loop and pin.”
