Help me raise an Eagle

Dan HolohanDan Holohan Posts: 11,944Moderator mod
My godson, Andrew Leich, is one of the finest young men I know and he's working to become an Eagle scout, which is a very tough thing to do. He gives me hope in a troubled world. Here he is:



Hi All,

My name is Andrew Leich and I am a Life Scout from Troop 351. Recently, I started working on my Eagle Scout project and am looking for monetary donations to help get things moving. I have taken the opportunity to help my church by renovating one of the main rooms. The Eagle Scout project will take place at St. John’s Lutheran Church.

Specifically, the project will pertain to a room inside the church known as “the Fellowship Hall.” This room, after years of strenuous use, has degraded in many of its aspects, such as the walls and floor.   It is my intention to fully restore this room, and make it available for use by the church and all the groups that meet there. However, this is not an easy task, as in order to fully restore the room, it will take close to $4000. With your help and support, I will be able to re-paint and re-floor the entire room. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated.Thank You,



Andrew Leich

Life Scout

Troop 351



I've attached a PDF description of Andrew's project. It's one that would make any trades person proud.



I'm collecting donations to help with this project. If you can help, please go to PayPal and use the Send Money button, along with my email address: mailroom@heatinghelp.com, to donate any amount you can swing.



I appreciate you. Thanks. 





Thanks.

    A big THANKS! to a very generous Denise McMillen,

    who wrote, "Dear Andrew Leich, I hope this helps you on your mission to fix St. John's fellowship hall."



    Thanks for seeing the positive side of today's young people, and for helping Andrew help others.

    Thank You

    Hi Everyone,



    Thanks for taking the time to read this thread and learn about my Eagle Project. A very big thanks for my first donation as well. I thought I'd take take the time to keep you updated on what I've been doing for my Eagle so that everyone is well informed. Today I went out and was pleased to find that many of the local delis and bagel shops in my area are willing to donate food; and with help of the first donation here, I have reached $905 towards the floor. Thank you all for your continued support, and I will continue to update you in the future.



    Thanks,



    Andrew Leich

    At Lowes

    Well, when walking into Lowes, I didn't know what to expect (Not that you generally do when walking into most warehouse stores), so I proceeded to the customers service desk. Ironically, Jen (the assistant manager) was talking to her co-worker about donation forms and where they were stored when I walked up. Now normally I'd assume that I would get a gift card when soliciting for donations, yet to my surprise I was instructed to take a shopping cart and "go shopping." After the various paints, tapes, rollers, masks, and otherwise, I had a pretty full shopping cart. I was able to walk out of Lowes, that day, with just over $325 in supplies, and a major step ahead in my project.



    Needless to say I was speechless.

    A warning appears

    when I click on your link, "warning possible phishing sit" That might be intimidating some of your donations? Do you have another means for folks to donate, maybe a mailing address for the old fashioned, check writing types :)

    Thanks for the opportunity............

    Dan: I've been a disciple of yours since I attended one of your seminars a dozen or more years ago. The value of information I have gleaned from you and this fantastic forum far exceeds my small contribution, but it feels good to be able to give back;  especially in support of someone who will no doubt be a life long contributor to our modern society.

    A Very Big Thank You

    Hi All,



    To everyone who has donated so far, I can't thank you enough. The funds for the church are coming along nicely, and I wouldn't be able to do it without you. Your support is what keeps this project going, and I thank you for your overwhelming generosity.



    On a side note: Over the past few days I was able to complete two more of required badges, leaving only one left before I have completed them all.



    Thank you all so much!

    Can't Thank You Enough

    Hey All,



    I had a great time with my godfather last night. I wanted to thank everyone who contributed thus far. You are a part of something very special. Only about 2% of all the Boy Scouts in the United States since 1911 have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Everyone who contributes is helping a great community project, and everyone who helps me will be listed in my Eagle Book, and acknowledged at my Eagle Scout Court of Honor.
