What is World Thinking Day?
Since 1926, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world have spent February 22nd thinking of each other and expressing thanks and appreciation for Scouting around the world. February 22nd was chosen as it was the birthday of both Lord Baden-Powell (who founded Boy Scouts) and his wife, Olave Baden-Powell, who was the World Chief Guide (for Girl Guiding & Girl Scouting). On World Thinking Day, girls from around the world learn about other cultures and (in most countries) make small donations (traditionally pennies) to the Girl Scouting/Guiding movement.
When: Saturday, February 22
Where: Edmonds United Methodist Church, 828 Caspers St, Edmonds
Time: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

All Girl Scouts will receive a Thinking Day patch. Your troop may choose a country and present a booth to share information, crafts, songs, games, etc. about scouts in the country you choose, or your troop may come and have a ton of fun learning about Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. If your troop wants to provide a country, please pick your top three choices. We will let you know what country you will be doing as soon as possible. (First come, first serve. There are 8 spots available for countries).
