Reminder: World Thinking Day is Monday, Feb. 22

COUNCIL NEWS: Girl Scouts' World Thinking Day is coming up on February 22.
Each year on this day, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Scouts in other countries.
The theme for World Thinking Day 2010 worldwide is "together we can end extreme poverty and hunger."
In this spirit we encourage our girls to explore ways they can help make the world a better place.
World Thinking Day not only gives Girl Guides and Girl Scouts a chance to celebrate international friendships, but is also a reminder that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community—one of 145 countries in the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). “Think globally, act locally,” is the mantra for encouraging girls to design activities that increase cultural awareness and emphasize the positive connections between Girl Scouts in the United States and their sisters throughout the world.
