Scouting makes a real difference in the lives of boys who have no strong paternal influence - I have seen it personally in the lives of my Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, many of whom did not have a father living at home.
I will never give a dime to the United Way ever again. My money goes directly to the Boy Scouts, and outside of the Salvation Army, it is one of the few organizations I actively support with my money and time.
Scouting works wonders!

I made the same decision to contribute directly to the Scouts and rip up the United Way stuff they sent around the office. I did that the year that United Way decided to pull support from the Scouts. When I first hired on with Pacific Telephone, the district manager was trying to make points with his boss by have a large participation in United Way. He literally called people into his office and demanded that they sign a 1% of gross donation to United Way. You couldn't leave his office without making the donation or resigning your employment. A real, genuine asshole.
