May 19 has been set aside as "National Thank You Day" for our First Responders - Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Technicians and Hospital Emergency Room personnel. We need to thank them for protecting us and saving lives.
Let's make it a memorable day again! One of the ways that troops can help with this fantastic service project, is to have the whole troop create personal thank you cards and then personally deliver those cards to local Police Departments, Fire Departments and hospital Emergency Rooms on May 19. There are many more ideas at http://bigtimethanks.wordpress.com/
Girl Scout leaders can help their girls create personal thank you cards! They just need to say "Thank You for ALL You Do!" or any other phrase that seems appropriate to your troop. Some might say "Thank You for saving my puppy" or "Thank You for catching bad guys" or something personal like that. Let's just create stacks of personal thank you cards from kids!
Make the cards and then your troop/group can deliver them to whichever department they choose. It is an easy project for any group of kids and would mean so, so much to those that receive the cards!
Please see the links below for more information and ideas. Also see the Youtube link to see many Girl Scouts delivering Thank You's! You and your troop could be in the next video!
