Our Brownies have been talking about a community change project. During their journey they have learned about their community and others around the world. With a group of girls of this age, you can imagine the ideas very quite a bit. But with some group discussion (and guidance), they have decided The Ronald McDonald House, would be their “charity” of choice because it is an organization that helps kids, like themselves!
Their idea is to collect soda pop cans and can tabs to help raise money for the organization.
The girls discussed different ways they could let people know they are collecting pop tabs to help the Ronald McDonald House. The girls talked about putting an announcement in the school newsletter, the church bulletin and hanging posters around the school, churches and even their parents’ places of work.
The girls also discussed different ways to really get people energized for their campaign, some of which include having the different grade-levels at school compete against each other for an ice cream party, or even taking it the next level by getting other Girl Scout Troops in our community involved.
If you have any suggestions or ideas to help make our community project a success please let us know, leave a comment below!
