World Thinking Day has been celebrated every year since 1926, and has been an important fundraising day since 1932. It’s a day about friendship, advocacy, and fundraising – all to support over 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world.
This special day is celebrated in several ways. Girl Guides and Girl Scouts spend today learning about their international sisters around the world. They participate in entertaining, educational activities based on the year’s advocacy theme. Past themes have included education, hunger and poverty, gender equality, and environmental sustainability.
Fundraising is also an important part of this day. Money that is donated will help girls learn new skills, to take action on issues important to them, and to help them develop as global citizens.
Lastly, Girl Scouts use today to earn their World Thinking Day badge! Celebrate today by supporting your local Girl Scout Troop or making a direct donation to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
