Please Join Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois on November 29 for Giving Tuesday!

Please join Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois and many others around the globe to celebrate #GivingTuesday! On Tuesday, November 29, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. Anyone, anywhere can get involved in #GivingTuesday and give back in a way that is meaningful to them. From fundraising to volunteering to pro bono service, #GivingTuesday is a great way to engage your community and to become a part of a larger worldwide movement that promotes generosity. 

New! Can You “Give 2” Community Service Campaign! 

This year, we’re challenging all GSSI troops to commit to “Give 2” - that is, to pledge at least two hours of service during the holiday season to share the joy of giving in their communities! Once you decide what cause you’d like to “Give 2” - let us know! Share a photo on Facebook, send us an e-mail or take a short video! Visit our website for promotional resources to use during your campaign.  

Other ways to get involved include: 
1. Perform a random act of kindness. Pay it forward. Do a good deed. 
2. Volunteer. Your talents and time are valuable! 
3. Give it your all! Make a commitment to positive words and thoughts. Smile! 
4. Make a donation to a non-profit making a difference in the world. 
5. Spread the word about #GivingTuesday on social media.
