Girl Scouts of Connecticut Celebrates World Thinking Day


February 17, 2010

Girl Scouts worldwide say "together we can end extreme poverty and hunger"

February 17, 2010 - World Thinking Day on February 22 is a chance for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world to send special messages of friendship and hope to each other. The theme of this year's World Thinking Day is, "Together we can end extreme poverty and hunger". Girl Scouts throughout Connecticut will participate in special activities and send Thinking Day cards to each other in celebration of friendship, leadership, and global understanding. 

Focusing on extreme poverty and hunger, this year's World Thinking Day is especially significant due to the current crisis in Haiti. Many Girl Scouts in Connecticut will be using Thinking Day as a way to learn more about countries around the world whose people are currently suffering from extreme poverty and hunger.   

Girl Scouts of Connecticut, Girl Scouts across the country, and Girl Guides around the world will be studying these issues, raising awareness about worldwide poverty, and thinking about how they can take action to help to improve the lives of people around the world.

Thinking Day was established in 1926 to celebrate the friendship of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts throughout the world.  The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) chose February 22 as the date for Thinking Day because it was the mutual birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scout movement, and his wife Olave, who served as World Chief Guide for Girl Guides around the world.
