I am currently serving as a den leader in a Cub Scout pack. I really love the camp properties available to scouts in Oregon. My son and I are making many beautiful memories together. I am considering making a contribution to Friends of Scouting, and I was disappointed to see the donor advisory. Child abuse is a serious crime, and I don't think anyone should donate to charities where children are being harmed, but the incident cited happened 30-40 years ago. The BSA has made significant changes since then to protect children from dangerous volunteers. The BSA is now the model that other youth organizations follow. How long will that advisory remain?
