This day celebrates the birthdays of Girl Guides/Girl Scouts founder Robert, Lord Baden-Powell (1857-1941) and the World Chief Guide, Olave, Lady Baden-Powell (1889-1977). To learn about this year's World Thinking day focus, visit Girl Scouts of the USA's World Thinking Day page.
In the United States, Girl Scouting grew out of the friendship between Juliette Gordon Low and Lord Baden-Powell and his sister, Agnes, who began Girl Guiding. World Thinking Day celebrates that friendship and the sisterhood of the Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the globe. This day is also a time to donate funds to the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund.
