Thinking Day Postcard Exchanges 2011

We must accept the fact that transport and communications will bring the world in close relations and the youth of the world should have standards and ideals in common. Juliette G. Low

Our Membership has been accepted to participate in the 2011 Thinking Day Postcard exchange

February 22, 2011 is  World Thinking Day, girls participate in activities, games, and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. World Thinking Day is part of the WAGGGS Global Action Theme (GAT) based on the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to improve the lives of the world's poorest people. The theme for World Thinking Day 2011 is girls worldwide say "Empowering girls will change our world."
World Thinking Day not only gives girls a chance to celebrate international friendships, but is also a reminder that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community—one of nearly 150 countries with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.  WAGGGS selected five countries of focus for World Thinking Day 2011 to represent the five WAGGGS regions:  Bolivia (Western Hemisphere), Cyprus(Europe), Democratic Republic of Congo (Africa), Nepal (Asia/Pacific),Yemen(Arab Region). 
Our Brownies have the opportunity to exchange postcards with girl scouts just like themselves around the world! This activity will complete our making connections patch of our Journeys series.

During the Holiday break I will be contacting the girls to get an idea of what countries as well as states they would like to exchange with.

Please feel free to contact me via email with this information as well.
