To celebrate World Thinking Day 2020, we’re inviting our members to join in our Mini Me exchange, to connect with other guiding members across the country.
Each year, on 22 February, World Thinking Day is celebrated by Girl Guides and Girl Scouts across the world as a day of international friendship and solidarity.
Girlguiding in England is one of 150 different countries who are part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), representing the 10 million girls and young women across the world involved in guiding.
The global theme for 2020 is Diversity, Equality and Inclusion. We’re happy to be an organisation that embraces the common differences that exist among our members young and not so young. We want to connect members from across Girlguiding North West England and beyond, to celebrate the diverse and unique girls we have, whilst giving them the opportunity to share some empowering words with each other.
We've created a Mini Me template, for you to decorate, to look just like you! On the back, you'll find a space to share a bit about yourself and share what you can do as a girl (we know that's plenty!), as well as what you think girls are capable of, to show that #GirlsCan do anything.
We can’t wait to see all your ideas about all of the incredible and fascinating things that girls can do and to see you share them with your Girlguiding sisters.
Please send all of your completed Mini Me templates to Girlguiding North West England, Guiding Road, Preston, PR2 5PD, by Friday 7 February 2020, so that we can make sure all of your fantastic ideas are exchanged in time for World Thinking Day. Don't forget to enclose your unit information slip, found here.
For more information and instructions, please download the guide here. For the template girl, click here. Leaders, please ensure that you write your unit name, in hand, on the back of each template, to ensure you don't receive one of your own units entries during the sorting process.
If you have any further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
