Girl Scout Troop 360 is a Junior Troop of 6 girls here in Lincoln, Nebraska. These girls have planned a fabulous trip to Georgia to visit the birth place of Juliette Gordon Lowe founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA. They have been working on raising funds to go on their trip and will be doing more fundraising, but haven’t been able to reach their goal yet.
On this trip they will stay on Tybee Island on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. They’ve never seen an ocean before so they are very excited to swim in it. They will visit the birth place of Juliette Gordon Lowe in Savannah where they will get to do some activities to earn the 100th Anniversary Badge as well as completing requirements to earn 4 other badges. One of these badges can only be earned in Savannah. It is specific to the Juliette Gordon Lowe Circle. They will do a light house tour and class as well as a tour of historic places which will also fulfill badge requirements. They will go on a day cruise and get to swim with dolphins which will help them earn a badge you can only earn in Georgia. They will get to eat at 3 popular restaurants: The Lady and Sons Restaurant, The Crab Shack, and the Soda Pop Shop. To top off the trip they will go to mass at the oldest Catholic Church in Savannah.
This trip is truly going to be the education of a life time! That is why I ask for your help. The troop has earned $1600.00 as of today. They have put a non refundable down payment on the house they will stay in. But they need $12,000 to make their goal. That is why I ask for your help.
As a previous Girl Scout myself I know how important an opportunity like this is and would really like these girls to have this chance to broaden their minds by seeing some of our big beautiful world. With your contribution, you can make their dream a reality. We thank you for any support that you can give!
