Girl Scouts Prove They’re #ForEVERYGirl With This!
Posted by GreaterGoodness
The Girl Scouts of Western Washington made a big statement of love and acceptance recently by returning a large donation that they were told couldn’t be used for every girl. They believe that every girl has a right to be treated fairly and equally no matter their gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socioeconomic status they happen to identify with.
Since it began, the #ForEveryGirl grassroots campaign has help raise back the money that they returned and even more! They’ve more than doubled the amount originally donated. Below are screen shots from a video they released explaining why they did what they did and why they need your help. You can also watch the video for yourself on the next page!
In addition to the grass roots campaign the Girl Scouts started to make that money back, they’ve also started Facebook and Twitter accounts which have current information and ways to help them reach their goals. It’s truly amazing how much support they’ve received from people all over!
The campaign hit $250K! We’re so humbled by the incredible show of support to stand with + #ForEVERYGirl! pic.twitter.com/N6xkLFnVOB
