Whether you’ve been a Girl Scouts for 10 years, or 10 days, today is special – it’s Girl Scout Founder, Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low’s birthday!
“Daisy,” as she was affectionately called, developed an organization that was girl-centered, where young women could develop physically, mentally and spiritually. Through Girl Scouts, Daisy exposed girls to the outdoors which included camping, hiking, basketball games and astronomy. Not only was Daisy passionate about Girl Scouts, but she also had a love for the arts and was very athletic. She was a poet, actor, playwright, painter and sculptor as well as a swimmer, tennis player and canoer.
Daisy is the ideal role model for our Girl Scouts, showing that girls can do anything and everything that they put their mind to! The Movement that Daisy started is still going strong, 102 years later with 3.2 million active girl and adult members and 52 million Girl Scout alumnae.
So today, dream a little bigger, aim a little higher and do a little more in honor of our Founder’s Day and Daisy’s birthday!
