Michelle Obama Challenges Girl Scouts!

Hey Girl Scouts - This is a call! Earlier this month, the United We Serve team launched its Let’s Read. Let’s Move. initiative. Let’s Read. Let’s Move. has three simple goals: increase opportunities for Americans to use service to promote physical activity; expand access to healthy and affordable food; and prevent summer learning loss in America’s kids. Sounds like a good idea! This initiative is led by the Corporation for National and Community Service in collaboration with First Lady and Girl Scout Honorary National President, Michelle Obama.

This is where we come in! Michelle Obama has challenged all Girl Scouts to read, exercise and keep track of these activities. Let’s all show Mrs. Obama what girls together can do! Read, exercise and encourage your friends to do it too, then log it in with us and see how much we can do! We’ll keep track of how many books you read, and how many hours you exercise and how often you encourage a friend to do the same.

For myself, who no longer has Summer Vacation (sad face) - I will remain reading my book every day while standing on the subway! Follow this link to log in your progress.
