Celebrate Juliette Gordon Low's Birthday With Birthday-In-A-Bag

A troop of Girl Scouts in Kansas started a service project that’s gone nationwide! It’s called “Birthday-In-A-Bag” in honor of Juliette Low’s birthday. So far, troops from Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri, Florida, Georgia, Virgina, Maryland, Ohio, New Jersey, North Carolina, Indiana, Idaho, California, and Washington D.C are participating!

What exactly is it? A Birthday-in-a-Bag is a self-contained gift bag with everything you need to have a Happy Birthday party. Every person needs some recognition of their birthday. However certain circumstances occur that might not make that possible. A Birthday-in-a-Bag can make a birthday more special.

Each Birthday-in-a-Bag should be delivered to your local food bank. The goal is to deliver no later than October 31st, 2011, Juliette Low’s birthday.

Each troop can undertake the Birthday-in-a-Bag as a community service project by putting together one or more Birthday Bags. This project is a way of showing that Girl Scouts care and Girl Scouting is an important part of your community. It is also a wonderful tribute to Juliette Low, founder of Girl Scouting.
