TIP: While you help, think about how these things correspond to the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
Kindness Challenge – Record a get-well video to brighten some one’s day. Include your first name, troop number and a get-well-soon message. You could even include instructions for a fun game (that can be played in bed) or some jokes.
Say thank you – Be creative and make a thank you card for anyone who is on the “front lines” helping keep everyone safe or supplied. Check Pinterest for card-making ideas! Remember to check if the organization will accept the physical copy by mail or if you should scan/email instead.
Combat loneliness by writing a letter, creating a story, or drawing a picture – Send to assisted living facilities, hospitals, residential treatment centers for kids or other similar organizations. Remember to check if the organization will accept the physical copy by mail or if you should scan/email instead . Check out some online sources to get you started.
Stay connected by video chatting – Check in with relatives, your troop, friends, etc. Social distancing doesn’t have to mean emotional distancing! You could even have a movie night via a digital connection or play a game. For example; one person describes a word (without using the actual word) to the other person, while they try to draw it based on the description given!
Spread Kindness & Inspirational Messages – Share uplifting stories or positive affirmations on social media or directly with your family and friends.
Pray or think positive thoughts – For those affected by COVID-19, whether by directly becoming ill or being affected in other ways (i.e. being out of work.)
Write a letter, send a card or make a video message for seniors. Check out a local organization – La Loma Village.
