Many people of all ages have discovered the fun of collecting things. Whether you collect rocks or stamps or model cars, it's exciting to be on the watch for a new item to add your collection and to see that collection grow. Some collections, such as rare sports cards, can be worth a lot of money. Other collections have no great dollar value. But there is one thing that you can collect which is worth more than anything else; good turns. In the Cub Scout Law of the Pack, we say, "The Cub Scout gives good will." That means that a Cub Scout is always on the lookout for ways to be helpful and kind to other people. When you accumulate acts of good will toward others, you are the wisest collector of them all.
