You’ve heard of Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Shop Small Saturday. But #GivingTuesday may be new to you. If so, get excited because today is #GivingTuesday and our council is thrilled to take part in this global initiative where we focus the spotlight on giving back. Today marks the third annual #GivingTuesday campaign and it is taking place across the globe.
Starting today and the rest of the season we want to encourage you to “Give the Gift of Girl Scouts.” What do we mean when we say gift?
Think about how Girl Scouts has impacted you. Did you or someone you know love their Girl Scout experience? Maybe you went on a camping adventure, found out who you wanted to be when you grew up, traveled somewhere super cool outside your town or made some new friends. Sure, these things may not have been wrapped up with a bow but we all know they are the most special gifts of all!
Think about what it would mean if more girls received lasting gifts like these? By giving the gift of Girl Scouts you’ll ensure that more girls can join in the fun and more adults can receive support to help girls build their courage, confidence, and character.
We all know that warm and fuzzy feeling when we give a gift. Making a gift to Girl Scouts is a surefire way to feel good and make a difference for girls right here in your community.
It’s easy – give the Gift of Girl Scouts today! Make sure to tell your friends and family you participated in #GivingTuesday by using the following hashtags on social media:
