Today’s Tips 4.4.22

Paint the World Purple with Kristen Bell 
In case you missed it, as a fun April Fool’s joke, Girl Scouts of the USA announced on Friday that it changed its long-time official green color to purple to get Girl Scouts excited about a real, upcoming event hosted by Kristen Bell, actress and author of “The World Needs More Purple People.” (No worries- Girl Scout’s official color has and always will be Girl Scout Green.)

This virtual event with Kristen Bell and her new book is scheduled for Thursday, May 19 (with two different session times). Registration is open now by clicking here– the event is open to all new and renewed Girl Scouts and volunteers. 

Spring Renewal is Here!
Now through May 31 is a great time to renew your Girl Scout membership for another year of fun, friendships and adventures. Why? Because there are several great bonuses you and your troop can earn!
