Roscoe's Eagle Scout Project

Yesterday Roscoe turned 14. Which I find kind of stunning.

This summer Roscoe is working on the Leadership and Service Project to earn his Eagle Scout. His plan is to make 100 wooden toy cars for Tiny Tim's Foundation for Kids (the same foundation we've made 89 hats for). Our friend who runs this foundation makes a compelling case for the importance of these little cars. He talks about how a child who has never before had a toy will spin one wheel, then another, while the wheels in his head start whizzing in a way they never have before.

Roscoe needs to collect a $1 donation for each car, organize and run a Scout event to sand and paint the cars, then finish them all at Tiny Tim's toy factory. Here's his plea to you for donations using the handy-dandy Donate button on the sidebar:

If you would like to make a $2.00 donation to Tiny Tim's please press this
button.
Roscoe Qshurst-McGee is making little wooden toy cars for Tiny Tim's
to give to poor children in Mexico who have no toys at all. Please make a
donation. Each car is one dollar. How many do you want me to make?
