Nearly 153 million children across the world have lost one or both parents and many suffer from malnutrition. As part of earning their Philanthropy Brownie badge, Brownie Troop 1667 wanted to help these children and fight hunger around the world.
After researching different charities that help abandoned children, Troop 1667 decided to partner with Rice Bowls, a non-profit organization working to feed orphaned children where the need is greatest. They quickly organized a plan to collect money donations and invited their sister Girl Scouts from Troop 1750 to help out. After one month, the girls gathered all the rice bowls and ended up collecting $168.55! The money was sent to children in South America, Africa, India and the Philippines to receive food and care.
Troops 1667 and 1750 are learning about the power of philanthropy and how working together can make an even bigger difference in the world. Great job, girls!
