Being a girl in today’s world is complicated. Girls hear “you can do and be anything,” yet they face a world that does not fully embrace what leadership skills they can add to the equation.
Girls need advocates who can amplify their voices and actions as they take the lead. Now, more than ever, girls need you.
On November 27, you will have the chance to join others and act for impact as Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana (GSGCNWI) takes part in #GivingTuesday.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the power of individuals and communities through philanthropy. To mark the occasion, we’re raising $20,000 to help more girls turn their passion into action through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
Your gift will help ensure that all girls can prepare for a lifetime of leadership, by giving them the chance to see, be, and do MORE through girl-led, myth-busting, and stereotype-shattering Girl Scouting experiences.
As we look forward to #GivingTuesday, we invite you to become inspired by the Girl Scouts of today and how they’re becoming the resilient leaders of tomorrow.
Over the next days and weeks, we’ll be highlighting Girl Scouts from our region who Discover, Connect, and Take Action in their everyday lives, embodying the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Stay tuned to our blog to learn about their unique journeys to making a difference in their own communities.
Donating to GSGCNWI is the gift that GIVES BACK. Mark your calendars, spread the word, and get ready to help S’MORE girls on November 27!
