World Thinking Day 2013

Each year on February 22, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from around the world gather to celebrate World Thinking Day. Thinking Day was created in 1926 as an annual time for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides to "think" of each other and give thanks and appreciation to their "sister" Girl Scouts. February 22 was chosen because it was the mutual birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, and his wife, Olave, who served as World Chief Guide.

Since it's start in 1926, each year, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides have celebrated World Thinking Day by: learning about their sister scouts, participating in advocacy themed activities, fundraising for the World Thinking Day Fund, and earning their World Thinking Day badge.

This year's theme for World Thinking Day is, "together we can save children's lives." While celebrating the international sisterhood of Girl Scouts, girls are encourages to make a difference in their world by participating in a service project focused on reducing child morality rates around the globe.
