A group to commission my 'Hope' MB and now the 'Believe' MB!
I am now raising funds for the new "Believe" MB!|
50K will earn you the new exclusive MB as soon as it's available and 35K will earn you a MB you do not have yet (as long as I'm able to award it)
The new activity to help raise funds for the 'Believe' MB, as well as raise funds for other fabulous groups is:
Thanks for your support!
A place to give out my new merit badge of hope :) It's based on the poem by Emily Dickinson:
“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -
And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -
I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.
This poem inspired me to write my own, based on the first stanza:
The Song of Hope
By: Tracey Criswell Wilson
"Hope" is the thing with feathers,
that perches in the soul,
and sings a tune without the words,
and never stops at all.
A bird soars within my soul
and lights upon my heart;
flights of freedom it must take,
never to depart.
It sings a song of love and hope
which words cannot express,
quieting the turbulence in my mind,
soothing my distress.
The fire of hope may flicker,
but the flame will never die,
blanketing the menaces with feathers,
carrying them on toward the sky.
Deep inside my spirit
the song of hope has a perch.
keeping me alive with its rhythm,
daily in my search.
Hope Merit Badge is newly commissioned, so all its details are not in stone yet. Among a couple of other things, I wanted it to have, "The Song of Hope"
For anyone who donates 50K toward helping to fund it, you'll receive one as soon as they're out.
