October 2010 Archives

Girl Scouts of the USA is working with Entertainment One, the distributors of the new film "The Secret of Moonacre," to spread the Girl Scouts 2010 brand campaign messaging. We are pleased to share that the Girl Scouts' "What Did You Do Today?" campaign video has been included as a feature on all DVDs and Blu-rays of "The Secret of Moonacre" - currently available in stores.

An acclaimed adaptation of the beloved, classic children's novel The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge, "The Secret of Moonacre" is a new family fantasy spectacle directed by Gabor Csupo ("Bridge to Terabithia") that stars up-and-coming actress Dakota Blue Richards along with Ioan Gruffudd, Tim Curry and Natascha McElhone. This fairy-tale adventure - complete with magical castles, unforgettable characters and mythical beasts - is rated PG, and is Dove Family-Approved.

Visit
"The Secret of Moonacre" website for more information. There you will also find a special article posted for Girl Scouts of the USA that explains "How Dakota Blue Richards became Maria Merryweather."

Carrie Underwood is coming to the Mobile Civic Center October 23, as part of her "Play On" tour.  Pretty awesome, right?  But what does that have to do with Girl Scouts?

 

Well...Carrie Underwood would like for Girl Scouts to attend her concert!  We have a limited number of tickets, and you can get them for only $2 per ticket.

 

Who is eligible to receive tickets?  Any registered Girl Scout!  You can purchase three tickets per family.  All you need is one registered Girl Scout (ages 5-18), and your family can purchase up to three tickets.

 

How do you get them?  It's easy!  We're doing this on a first-come, first-served basis by date and time each e-mail is received.  So, be sure to register quickly.  Simply e-mail the Event Registration Form to communications@girlscoutssa.org, and we'll let you know if we have tickets for you.

 

After that, we will let you know when we have the tickets available for pick up.  The concert is nine days away, so there won't be enough time to mail out any tickets.  Tickets will be available for pick up (once we receive them) at the Mobile and Montgomery Service Centers between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.  Tickets will not be available for pick up on the day of the concert, so be sure you can come by one of the offices before that time.

 

We will keep a waiting list for any tickets that don't get picked up by noon on Friday, Oct. 22.

 

We knew Carrie is an American Idol, but we think she's a Girl Scout Idol, too!

usa_today.jpgyou put movie stars, Girl Scouts, and members of the media together to discuss how young women are portrayed in movies, magazines and on TV?

Here's what you get: you learn how much the media influences how we girls see ourselves! And you make plans to let everyone know that just because it's on TV doesn't make it so.  The Healthy Media for Youth Summit was a big success, and that's where they debuted the great "Watch What You Watch" video in our last blog entry.
