#MexicoEarthquake: How #Scouts can help

Dear fellow Scouts,

For the past two weeks, news of back-to-back earthquakes in Mexico have been on the headlines of news portals worldwide. As you read this, the death toll stands at 273 with over 2,000 injured in Mexico City alone. Across the region, at least 40 buildings have crumbled and numerous infrastructure badly damaged. Thousands of families are now struggling to recover from this tragedy.

Yet despite the devastation and loss, more than 4,000 fellow Scouts have persevered in supporting ongoing relief efforts. Since day one, these active citizens have not hesitated in extending a helping hand, ever prepared to serve those in need by every possible means, although affected by the catastrophe themselves.

The recovery efforts will take time and require a huge amount of resources. To help them to continue their service to the affected communities, the Scouts of Mexico have created a project on the Scout Donation Platform to raise funds.

I want to support Scouts in Mexico
It’s been said that no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. In solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Scouting, we appeal to your kindness and generosity. In fact, many National Scout Organizations (NSO) around the world have already acted to show their support.

Here are some ways you can help:

  • contribute to the relief efforts of the Scouts of Mexico by donating to their project on the Scout Donation Platform
  • organise a local fundraiser and channel the funds to the Scouts of Mexico’s project on the Scout Donation Platform
  • help us to promote the Scouts of Mexico’s project and raise more funds by liking and sharing the campaign. By spread this to your family and friends, we can raise even more funds to support our brothers and sisters in Mexico.

Your past contributions have allowed Scouts in the Philippines, Haiti, Peru, Ecuador, Nepal and Sri Lanka to fulfill the Scout Promise of serving others. Now, more than ever, the Scouts in Mexico are counting on you to stand together with them.

On Monday I will visit Mexico to join our fellow scouts there and express our solidarity and support as a movement, and also deliver your assistance to the affected people.

Every action counts! Together, let’s create a wider positive impact. To donate and find out more about their project, visit the Scout Donation Platform

Yours in Scouting,
