Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, and today is Giving Tuesday - a day to kick off the season of giving. As Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland reaches out to our friends and alumnae, today I would like to tell you why I believe in the mission of Girl Scouting, and why I’m proud to be a donor.
As the CEO of Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland, let me express my excitement to be involved with an organization with such a rich history of providing leadership development opportunities to girls. Every day I learn about a new community service project or troop experience centered around leadership, and I’m reminded of one simple thing - Girl Scouting works!
Last year, because of generous donors like YOU, Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland:
- Served over 16,000 girls with the Girl Scout Leadership Experience
- Provided nearly $100,000 in financial assistance to girls who could not otherwise afford Girl Scouting
- Trained over 3,000 adult volunteers in all aspects of the Girl Scout program
These gifts supported the work we do every day and are so passionate about – building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place! I look forward to a time when each and every girl realizes her leadership potential – and I know you do too. With your help we can accomplish this goal.
As you consider your gift to Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland on Giving Tuesday,please know your gift of $30, $50, $100, $250 or the largest contribution you can personally make will ensure Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland can continue to provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to each and every girl who wishes to join.
