Your Troop Can be Considerate and Caring
In my opinion, one of the most important aspects of leading a Girl Scout troop is teaching the girls about those who are in need. Service projects do not always have to be enormous undertakings…sometimes something simple will do.
Troops of all ages can participate in the Sending Smiles service project. Started by two sisters and their cousins who wanted to make a difference, it has grown over the years.

First, find an organization that wants your postcards. There are suggestions on the website that you can find here. You order the postcards you need. The girls can write jokes, draw pictures, place stickers on the postcards…anything you all can agree upon. This is a great opportunity to earn the orange Daisy petal, Considerate and Caring.
Here is how you can get your postcards. If you want your troop to have a fun patch, then hit the “donate” button- in purpose put “patches” They are $2.50 each.
