Dave O'Leary, a fellow Alpha Phi Omega brother and a member of the
APO's National Scouting and Youth Programs Committee, passed along
the following; it sounds like a GREAT service project for not just
our Camp Fire participants here, but also for our Scouting and
Guiding participants; feel free to share this with your Council,
District, and units....if you have questions, please note and
contact the email addresses indicated within the posting:

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day is an annual, national program of the
Campfire Boys and Girls. March 18, 1999 will be the third time
this event has been held. The basic idea of the project is a huge
letter-writing campaign to the kids everywhere - ideally from
adults to kids that they know, but any kid who needs to know that
someone cares is a candidate!
Lots of information about the project is available on the Campfire
web page at http://www.campfire.org
The national email address for the project is email@example.com
Specific service opportunities for chapters interested in this
*Write letters to kids as individuals or as a chapter.
These can be any kids - your friends, relatives, neighbors kids,
or kids that you have met through one of your service projects.
If you don't know any kids, contact your local Campfire council,
Salvation Army, or perhaps a lcaol social services agency
for suggestions. Who knows, you could make a new friend, and
more importantly, be a new friend!
*Promote Absolutely Incredible Kid Day on campus or in community
by putting up flyers on campus or in the campus newspaper.
(coordinate with local Campfire council)
*Staff mall exhibit on Absolutely Incredible Kid Day - some
councils will be placing tables at local malls on/around Kid Day,
and they need help for people to staff the tables (explaining the
purpose of Kid Day, etc.). Contact your local Campfire council
about opportunities in this area.
Both Campfire Boys and Girls and the APO Scouting and Youth Service
Committee are interested in any success stories with Absolutely
Incredible Kid Day. Alpha Phi Omega will be listed on their web
page and literature as a supporter and participant in the event.
If you have questions, please check first on the Campfire web page
(http://www.campfire.org), then check with your local Campfire
council (note that not all areas in the country have a local
council). If you still can't find an answer, please contact me
(email to firstname.lastname@example.org is best).
Thanks for your help and support!
