Hello everyone,
My name is Danny Orsic and for my Eagle project i am building a greenhouse for a garden near my house that donates most of the food grown to local food pantries. if anyone would be willing to donate that would be very kind. if you cannot donate for any reason no problem but it would be helpful if you could spread the word about my project Thanks. This forum is not allowing me to link my GoFundMe page so if you wish to donate you can search Danny's Boy Scout Eagle Project in GoFundMe and the image is a greenhouse. Thanks Again!

Hi Danny, I did a search and came up with the title you gave, but it was for a project filling backpacks. I didn't see any with a greenhouse.

It should work if you search Danny's Boy Scout Eagle project. I just checked and it was there sorry about the confusion.

This is really strange. I went to Gofundme and put that exact wording in. Here is what I get.

Hmmmm...Danny just registered on the forum I run with the same post. I don't mind helping out if Danny and his Eagle Scout project are above board. I am trying to find out info about him to see if he is legit. If you find any info, please post it here. I will do the same.

I just posted a challenge to @DannyO on my forum. heck, I don't mind helping if the kid is legit. This is what I wrote:

Hi @DannyO,

Welcome to the XXXX Forum (name removed as to not advertise another forum here). I see you have hit at least one other forum I am a member of, and I suspect others, and there is some skepticism if this project and your Go Fund Me Page is legitimate. I'll tell you what. If you can prove to me your project is legit, and you post your project updates here on XXXX Forum from now until completion, my company, MoonShadows Farm LLC, will donate $100 to your project.

Are you game, @DannyO?

That's a more than fair offer. I still can't find his Gofundme .

hello all,
I thank you all for responding so quickly. I have replied in the other forum but for the sake of everyone only reading this one I wrote this
"I'm am not quite sure how I can prove this to you. I am in contact with the man that runs the garden but not directly with the food pantries. I can talk to him if you would like and request information about the food pantries. the garden this project is going in is called the Giving Garden and they do have a Facebook page if you would like to research them. It is run by a Cody Legrand. I can update this page with progress as I go."
their facebook page isn't very large and they are a very new group, this past season was the second season for them in this garden. my troop has garden days every month where we go out and help him with gardening and this is what initially sparked my interest in gardening. I will be sure to update this forum as well with progress, and my gofundme will also be updated.

From what Danny posted on my forum, I decided his effort is legit and worthwhile. And, keeping my word, we donated $100 towards his Go Fund Me cause and Eagle Scout Project to build a greenhouse for the Giving Garden in Chicago. We encourage you to help him out.

Thanks, Jim. I'm relieved that it's not a scam. I fully support anyone who wants to become an Eagle Scout!

I asked Danny O for an update on another forum I am a member of....This was his reply. Thought I would share it here.
Hey all,
Sorry for the radio silence from me school had gotten very busy but I am currently awaiting council approval of the final stages of my project. Thanks to all who donated I am very grateful to you and this awesome online community. I will try to post updates as much as possible!
Thanks again,
Danny O

Danny, both my sons are Eagle Scouts - you have a lot to be proud of soon to be Eagle. Another suggestion for raising funds:
Short YouTube video explaining your project and the garden. As part of posting the video, you can put in link to your GoFundMe page.

Thank you @lauriebasler. That is very nice to you to say. When I started Hobby Greenhouse Growers Association back in December, I decided besides just being a place to congregate and talk about our greenhouses and gardens, it would be a nice idea if we could find a way to "spread the word" about gardening and greenhouse growing. That prompted me to start our "Giving Green for Greens" Program which I hope to fund through small donations and sales from out greenhouse store...although the store may not do that well because we have to compete with so many "big boys" who can sell so much cheaper than us. Just today, we made another donation to a Gardens for Orphan Girls in Sierra Leone. You can read about their garden on our Home Page by clicking the link under the "Giving Green for Greens Program" heading at http://www.hgga.org/ if you are interested.
