I almost posted this under "unit fund raising", but it really has to do with fund raising for national. In a news piece about patriotic songs, and how everybody is singing these songs since September 11, there was a comment about "God Bless America." This was originally written by Irving Berlin in 1918, but did not become popular until much later. When it started earning royalties, Berlin donated those to the boy scouts and the girl scouts. I don't know if this song is in the public domain yet, but if you are in an environment (night club, radio music request show, etc.) where royalties would be paid, keep in mind that you might be generating revenue for scouts if you ask for "God Bless America" instead of some other patriotic song.
