Giving back and doing good deeds is part of our DNA. The Girl Scout slogan says to “Do a good turn daily” so this October, we’re challenging Badgerland Girl Scouts to do a “good turn” every day of the month – that’s 31 days of good deeds to earn the 31 Random Acts of Kindness patch!
Why October and why 31?
Our amazing founder, Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday is October 31 and we want to honor her by banding together and contributing to the world around us. Imagine the impact Badgerland Girl Scouts will make when every Girl Scout does something nice for others. Thousands of people around Badgerland will have a reason to smile every day, all because of Girl Scouts. Wow!
Need some ideas on how your Girl Scouts can spread kindness in the community? Here are a few:
- Leave an anonymous note telling someone how special they are
- Open a door for the person behind you
- Take your neighbor’s dog for a walk
- Save your change then treat a loved one to an ice cream cone
- Call grandma and tell her your favorite memory of a time spent together
Big and small, the possibilities are endless. You can find more ideas at RandomActsOfKindness.org.
Keep track of your Random Acts of Kindness and order your patch with the 31 Random Acts of Kindness Order and Tracking form.
We can’t wait to see how awesome October is around Badgerland with thousands of Girl Scouts doing daily good turns. Share some of your random acts of kindness and we’ll share them with the world!
