Felipe Cunha is working on IST in the Messengers of Peace booth, and has earned his Messengers of Peace Award. Messengers of Peace is all about Scouts doing good deeds in their community spreading messages of peace and goodwill through service projects. Felipe works for a NGO (Non Governmental Organization) in Brazil: Casa De Acolhida Sao Felipe Neri.

This organization works with youth in Brazil serving as a before and after school program. Their school days are half day programs. Every week Felipe makes cookies, Solidarity cookies as he calls them, and goes house to house selling them to raise money for this organization. 30% of the proceeds is donated to this particular NGO to help provide supplies and materials. This program keeps youth off the streets, provides additional education in varying areas, they play games, learn to work together, and have fun in the process.
