Roof over your head day

December Holidays to Celebrate

While we may all "need a little Christmas" this year, let's not forget the many other reasons to celebrate this month - starting with "National Roof Over Your Head" Day on December 3rd.

After Hurricane Sandy, this day has special meaning to many of us - and for those still dealing with the disaster - remember that December 16th is "National Chocolate-Covered Anything" Day. It couldn't hurt!.





PSA Contest

Girl Scout PSA Contest

Make a Public Service Announcement (PSA) that tells people what the world would look like if all girls treated each other with kindness and respect and no one was bullied – at school, online and out in the world.
What would it look like? What can you do to help us get there? Get more information and submit your entry by January 31, 2013. The winning entry will become a professionally produced PSA.





Sandy Damage

What Can a Girl Do?

After Hurricane Sandy, many girls are asking how they can help. Here's a great tip sheet from GSUSA. And they've got some guidance for our volunteers about how you can help girls to develop their leadership skills as they respond after a disaster. Talk about making lemonade!!
