TAKE ACTION: Ask Jeff Bezos to Support Girl Scouts, and help us change the world!
Dear Jeff, Recently you asked your Twitter followers to share which worthy causes you should support through your philanthropic efforts. The advocates who have signed this petition and I wholeheartedly believe you should support Girl Scouts of the USA, and here’s why. For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts has prepared girls for the opportunities they’ll take on both now and in the future, experiences they can only get through the largest and premier leadership organization for girls. Our inclusive, girl-led environment provides a safe space for girls to practice 21st century skills such as coding, cybersecurity, financial literacy, and environmental stewardship, which prepare girls to lead and create positive change in their communities and beyond. Research and data substantiate Girl Scouts’ impact. Compared to non–Girl Scouts, Girl Scout alumnae: Go on to have more successful careers Enjoy higher household and personal income Are more active as mentors and community volunteers Vote more regularly Are better educated Additionally, the majority of female astronauts, 80 percent of U.S. senators, more than 50 percent of female elected officials, and all three female secretaries of state were Girl Scouts. Studies consistently show there’s no better investment than in girls. You’ll magnify the effect of your donation when you give to Girl Scouts by supporting programming that combines science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; life skills; entrepreneurship; financial literacy; and civic engagement—experiences that build future female leaders who are prepared to compete in a global workforce. Girl Scouts is 2.6 million strong—1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Join us, and we will accomplish great things together. Invest in girls, and change the world! Sincerely,Sylvia AcevedoCEOGirl Scouts of the USA
