2/22: International world thinking day

Were you a girl scout? Were your girls scouts?


International World Thinking Day

When : Always February 22nd

Just think about it! Today is a day to ponder and contemplate.

International World Thinking Day is celebrated by Girl Scouts, Girl Guides and other girl groups. The original objective of this day was to set aside a day for girls all over the world  to think of each other, and to give thanks and appreciation to "sister" Girl Scouts and Girl Guides. Over the years, it has been expanded to include the opportunity for girls (young and less young) to learn about health issues that affect girls and young women.

You don't have to be a Girl Scout or a Girl Guide to participate in this day. Rather, we encourage all females, young and old, to learn a little more about health issues today. If you are in a position to provide education and training on health issues, do so today. If you can not conduct it today, then schedule it for some time in the near future.

Something to think about: February 22nd is the birthday of both Lord Baden-Powell founder of the Boy Scouts, and his wife Lady Olave Baden-Powell . Lady Baden-Powell who founded Girl Guides.

I was a Girl Scout for a couple of years.  I've been a Girl Scout leader for 22 years.  Both of my DD's and my SD were/are Girl Scouts.  Our troop is having a World Thinking Day celebration Monday.

I was a girl scout from daisy to senior.  My daughters were girl scouts for a year.  It has majorly changed.  I couldn't keep them in there.  Here the dues were extremely high, and they did no camping, no badges, and just worried about cookie sales.  The one time they had a sleepover they were left unsupervised in a club house with a 17 year old boy.  I pulled them out immediately when that happened.

I was briefly a Girl Scout.

My son is a Boy Scout, and to be honest, I like their program better.
