1000 Flowers for the Planet - #452 Observe World Thinking Day
World Thinking Day was devised by the Girl Guide movement in 1926 and is a day of friendship, advocacy and fundraising for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world. The girls are encouraged to think about each other, and their fundraising efforts are to help girls around the world develop their skills, education and potential. This is a true leadership quality in our youngsters that should be noticed, admired and emulated by adults everywhere.
Educating girls in all countries around the world is an important step towards a better planet, that currently faces greater and greater challenges with every year our population grows. How we treat our girls will determine how well we manage our future. And apart from that message, the Guides and Scouts are showing and reminding us how important it is to think of others, no matter where you live or how old you are. Sometimes our children have the answers.
