I Can’t Wait To Share My Girl Scouts Love!

This is part of a sponsored campaign for the Girl Scouts as part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network. All Opinions are my own.



Hey All!

Not many of you know, but I grew up with Girl Scouts. My mom worked for Girl Scouts for over forty years and it meant a lot to my mom to be with an organization like Girl Scouts that’s supports the growth of girls and women. If you didn’t know the Girl Scouts have been around for a very long time.

Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls, with 3.2 million girl and adult members worldwide. Girl Scouts is the leading authority on girls’ healthy development, and builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. The organization serves girls from every corner of the United States and its territories. Girl Scouts of the USA also serves American girls and their classmates attending American or international schools overseas in 90 countries.

I feel growing up with the Girl Scouts in my life has made me the woman I am today. The Girl Scouts have brought me and my mother so many memories in our lives. I can only pray I have a daughter one day so I can share my love of Girl Scouts with her. I feel it will be extra special memory to have with my own daughter one day. I can’t wait to be a Girl Scouts mom and helping her sell her cookies! I can’t wait to have those slumber parties and camping trips with her troop. I can’t wait to help her get her badges. I can’t wait to see her being proud of herself and being proud of being a Girl Scout. At the moment I’ve been introducing my niece to Girl Scouts and she too is loving not only the cookies but the sense of friendship and empowerment that being a Girl Scout provide.


Did you know nationally, Girl Scouting has 3.2 million girl and adult members, 2.3 million girls and 890,000 adult volunteers? That’s such an amazing number and so many amazing girls and women learning and supporting each other.

Girl Scouts is sharing a new recruiting message and it follows this motto:

You know that feeling when you just can’t wait for tomorrow? When you’re with friends, and you’re talking about all the fun things that could happen? We love that feeling! So let’s do all the cool stuff you imagined – like trying a bunch of new things, making new friends and sharing what makes you smile. We’ll count down to the next day – and the next one, and the next one – together.

This is a message even National Honorary President of Girl Scouts and First Lady Michelle Obama supports! She is featured in a PSA that you can see below.


It showcases why being a Girl Scout and Girl Scout volunteer is fun and showcase what it’s like to be  part of the Girl Scout experience.

Girl Scouts is dedicating the week from September 30th–October 6th to getting the word out to parents and caregivers who want girls to make friends, have new adventures and do great things.  Girls K-5 make up the majority of Girl Scout membership and Parents, caregivers and volunteers are vital to success of Girl Scouts.


They want every girl to be so excited about the adventures she’ll have with the Girl Scouts that she can hardly wait for it, because she knows she can do anything she sets her mind to. That feeling starts with parents who encourage their daughters, and volunteers who are role models.

Research proves that Girl Scouts works! In fact, in a 2012 study of more than 3,750 women by the Girl Scout Research Institute, titled Girl Scouting Works: The Alumnae Impact Study, women who were Girl Scouts as girls display positive life outcomes, higher incomes and education levels, and make more money to a greater degree than women who were not Girl Scouts. This is a compelling reason for caregivers to enroll their daughters in Girl Scouts.

Being a Latina, I think it’s very important for Latina little girls especially to have experiences in life with women and girls of all different cultures. It gives them life experiences that are priceless. I firmly believe that’s what Girl Scouts gave to me and it can give that to your daughters as well. I can’t wait to give this experience to my own daughter one day.
