World Thinking Day… Every Day!
As many of you may already know, Girl Scouts celebrates World Thinking Day worldwide every year on February 22. It’s a day for girls to participate in and learn about their Girl Scout sisters around the world. It’s also a way to honor all the different countries and cultures that are represented globally in Girl Scouts. As I reflected on the holiday this year, I realized something very special about a troop that I work with every week. Troop 84233 is one of the most diverse groups with which I have ever worked. For this troop, every day is World Thinking Day – literally!
We have girls from all over the world that speak many different languages. It is literally World Thinking Day re-enacted at every troop meeting! We celebrate each other’s differences while simultaneously valuing the exact same philosophies – those taught by the Girl Scout Promise and Law. That is the beauty of what we do in Girl Scouting; bringing girls and young women together – from all walks of life – and building relationships and community through the programs that we offer.
Here are a few pictures from our last meeting. We are a group troop and are working on the Junior Practice with Purpose badge, Brownie Fair Play badge and the Honest and Fair petal for the Daisies.
If you want to get involved and attend a World Thinking Day event, here are a few happening locally.
Or, you can check with your local Service Center to find a World Thinking Day celebration near you!
