Join GSMH for Give Ozarks

Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland (GSMH) is participating in the first-ever Give Ozarks 24-hour online day of giving on May 5, 2015.

Give Ozarks 30-second Promo from CF Ozarks on Vimeo.

GSMH will raise online donations from midnight to midnight on May 5 at giveozarks.org. Our goal is $5,000 for the ToGetHerThere campaign.

What is the ToGetHerThere Campaign? It’s about girls! We believe every girl deserves the confidence to dream big.

Research indicates that 61% of girls are either ambivalent about leadership or say it’s not important to them at all. Studies also reveal that girls idealize leadership qualities and skills, like being talented, caring, honest, hard-working, confident, good listeners, and team players. Sadly, only 21% of girls believe they have the qualities required to be a good leader. In other words, girls know what it takes to lead, but lack the confidence to do so.

It’s time for things to change.

Investing in girls through Girls Scouts will allow more girls to join a community of leading Girl Scout Alumnae, develop into the next generation of empowered and resourceful women, and build a confidence they will carry with them into the future.
• 70% of professional women are Girl Scouts
• 69% of female U.S. Senators are Girl Scouts
• 67% of female members of the House of Representatives are Girl Scouts
• Almost every female astronaut is a Girl Scout.

Making a secure donation is simple. On May 5, go to Give Ozarks-GSMH to complete a basic credit-card donation. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the IRS.
