On February 22 of each year, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from 146 countries celebrate World Thinking Day (WTD)—that’s one BIG celebration!
Celebrated since 1926, World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship, speaking out on issues that affect girls and young women, and fundraising for 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world.
World Thinking Day is not only a great opportunity to rally the global sisterhood around a particular theme—it’s also a chance to support girls as they travel internationally, connect with sister Girl Guides, and take action globally.
The World Thinking Day 2017 theme is “Grow.” This World Thinking Day, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides will explore, stretch, and take on new challenges—and celebrate what it means to be part of the global sisterhood that is Girl Scouts + Girl Guides.

Donate to the World Thinking Day Fund: A tradition since 1932, the World Thinking Day Fund collects pennies and coins from members around the world, to support their fellow Guides and Scouts. All donations help fund WAGGGS activities and are used where the need is greatest in our global Movement.
