I put this together for my Girl Scout Service Unit. We donate a gift basket to the first baby girl born during Girl Scout Week at our local hospital! This is my first time ever putting together a basket. I added baby wash cloth roses through out the basket. I think it turned out great!
This site has a list of great ideas to fight hunger. Although many are one-time events, they could be turned into Take Action projects. For example, girls could host a benefit potluck, blog about how they did it (inspiring others to do the same), network with girls in other communities to hold a potluck on the same night, or work with a community organization to establish a yearly "Feed the Hungry Benefit Potluck."
How to Make a Homeless Care Package (Free Printable Supplies List)
Great example of what Take Action looks like! This mother took what could have been a community service project (make a care package for the homeless) and turned it into what Girl Scouts call a Take Action project. She did that by passing on what she knows to educate and inspire others -- through the blog post, the free printables, the resource list, etc. That's what makes this sustainable! So inspiring.
My friend who is in the military received this care package from an Elementary school class...He was so uplifted to receive it...I think this would be a great class or group project for any group who wants to do a volunteer or service project...You can find more info on how-to here http://www.anysoldier.com
