NovemberOpen Your Heart, And Lend A Hand
Happy Friendsgiving! Friendsgiving is traditionally a gathering of close friends to share the spirit of Thanksgiving. Friendsgiving is also a holiday where you can demonstrate your love for your friends and family through generous and friendly gestures; it is a new way to celebrate those who we care about. Further, it’s also a great time to show folks who don’t have people to spend the holidays with, that they are respected and cared for.
This Friendsgiving Friendship patch is a beautiful combination of symbols. The pumpkin pie is a traditional dessert enjoyed during the Thanksgiving & Friendsgiving holiday. The circle of hands represents the friendship circle which is a longstanding Girl Scout tradition. The heart in the middle of the girls’ hands represents the love and care the girls have for their fellow Girl Scout sisters and others.
During this Friendsgiving time, we ask girls to be friendly and helpful & considering and caring by generously giving their time to make other people’s lives a little happier.Here are some ways to open your heart, and lend a hand:
· Pick some flowers for a neighbor or friend· Make someone a card· Create a gift of a Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving centerpiece· Bake for others· Spread joy through song· Bring someone their mail· Help someone by walking their dog· Learn a few jokes & share them (Make others laugh and smile!)· Find a location that is accepting donations for Thanksgiving dinner and contribute toward the cause (canned cranberry sauce, canned ham, stuffing mix, canned corn, canned sweet potatoes or yams, cans of green beans, mashed potato mix or whatever they are asking for.)· Anything else heartfelt that you decide
Choose one or more options. Be sure to always take a trusted adult with you when you leave your house. Thank you for making the world a better place!
