Girl Scouts throughout the world celebrate
It is the birthday of Robert, Lord Baden-Powell, who founded the Boy Scout movement in England, and Olave, Lady Baden-Powell, who continued his work by heading the Girl Guiding movement. On this day, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts make a special effort to exchange greetings with their sisters in other countries, and to give contributions to the Thinking Day Fund. This fund is used to promote the Girl Guide/Girl Scout organizations throughout the world.
