PS – Girl Scouts San Diego applauds MacKenzie Scott for her recent record-breaking donation to Girl Scouts of the USA and the incredible impact it will have on the next generation of female leaders nationwide. Our organization was not selected to receive an individual council grant from Ms. Scott; however, we hope this conversation continues inspiring more donations in our own San Diego and Imperial Valley communities.
Dear Girl Scout friend,
“We have a voice in our community, and we can make a difference.”
—Shelby, San Diego Girl Scout
To experience the change you want to see in the world, first, you must mirror it and show others, especially our young women, how to do the same. Creating impactful change is not a solo endeavor; we must create community and move together to achieve our goals.
One change that I want to see in the world is a more just and equitable society, where girls’ voices are uplifted instead of diminished. From a young age, girls are confronted by what society says they cannot do or should not do which can have lasting effects into adulthood. Girl Scouts demonstrates how to manage expectations (other’s as well as their own), how to tackle challenges, and how to empower themselves and their peers to become the leaders they know they can be.
Made possible with your support, Girl Scouts is building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
I became a Girl Scout volunteer when my 5-year-old daughter joined as a Daisy. Since then, I have held many roles, including National Delegate, Service Unit Manager, and Share Coordinator. The most rewarding part of my time in Girl Scouts has been watching my daughter blossom because of this exceptional organization into a strong, confident leader.
Through Girl Scouts, girls receive endless opportunities to do amazing things they never thought they could. From troop leaders and staff to other Girl Scouts, girls are surrounded by a group of built-in cheerleaders who reinforce all they can achieve. Girl Scouts San Diego gives girls the tools they need to design their own future and create a brighter tomorrow.
Please join me in giving generously today. Together, we can empower our girls to chase after their dreams and make a difference.
With warm regards,
Dedicated Girl Scouts San Diego Volunteer
