There is many ways to get oneself to this course if from out of Council. I’m using Utah’s Wood Badge Scholarship being a Deaf Scouter and my own Council’s Wood Badge Campership fund. My council agreed to pay half of the cost of my airline ticket. (Know that campership comes in many types. Usually campership refers to summer camps which is the most common one. Check with your Council Training Advisor for the Wood Badge Campership or Training Campership which are least known or used.)
As nervous as I was (I dislike asking for money for myself), I started a GoFundMe page. Talk about AMAZEMENT!! Utilizing both my facebook and email contact list, I reached over my goal in 3 days THANKS to the generosity of many. I will stress how its written helps and it did take me a couple days to write it. Also state over your goal as GoFundMe charges a couple fees: your check disbursement and % on your collection. Overall, I liked the ease of GoFundMe in using contact list, posting update and saying thank you. Here’s mine as an example: http://www.gofundme.com/ASL-English-Wood-Badge
Remember you CAN do everything but hear!! Don’t miss out on this once in lifetime opportunity with the word can’t.
