One world, one day—lots of helping hands! Celebrating global sisterhood is what World Thinking day is all about. Since 1923, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) has celebrated World Thinking Day, February 22, as a day of international friendship—that includes 10 million girls in 146 countries. How awesome!

This year, World Thinking Day is focused on the theme of growth—inviting even more girls from around the world to participate in all that Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting has to offer. Let’s celebrate all the ways we can stretch, explore, and take on new challenges. How will you grow this World Thinking Day?

Make the World Greener, One Tree at a Time

Let’s help make the world bloom! It might be cold and snowy here in New Hampshire and Vermont, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plant a tree—start with a seed and grow it inside until spring arrives. Not only can you watch it grow, just think about all the other trees being planted across the world by sister Girl Scouts and Girl Guides. What a big way to show the depth of our Movement across borders and oceans while making the world a better, greener place.
