How do you plan to celebrate the birthday of Juliette Low, who founded Girl Scouts nearly 100 years ago?
A troop of Girl Scouts in Kansas are celebrating her October 31 birthday with a service project that has gone nationwide: “Birthday-In-A-Box.” Troops in more than 35 states are participating, and the Kansas Girl Scouts that started the movement hope for participation from every state.
A Birthday-in-a-Box is a self-contained gift box with everything you need to have a Happy Birthday party. Every person needs some recognition of their birthday. However certain circumstances occur that might not make that possible. A Birthday-in-a-Box can make a birthday more special.
Each Birthday-in-a-Box should be delivered to your local food bank or local charity office. The goal is to deliver no later than October 31st, 2011, Juliette Low’s birthday.
Each troop can undertake the Birthday-in-a-Box as a community service project by putting together one or more Birthday Boxes. This project is a way of showing that Girl Scouts care and Girl Scouting is an important part of your community. It is also a wonderful tribute to Juliette Low, founder of Girl Scouting.
