|Turning in Donation at W4W6 Registration|
In April we told you that this remarkable Girl Scout Brownie Troop set aside money from their cookie sales to make a donation to Walk4Water6, and that they were busy soliciting sponsors for their participation in the Walk. At that time the girls hoped to double their $250 W4W5 donation, but in fact, they turned in a donation of $710.72!!
Indeed, it was a delight to have these girls join us for W4W6. Prior to the Walk they studied World Vision’s 5 elements for WASH and prepared a mini display which they set up at the Walk. They spoke fluently about the need for accessible, clean water and the solutions that World Vision provides as they presented their display alongside information about water conservation in their own community.
After W4W6 as the girls reflected on their experience with their Troop Leaders Gina Spady and Kathy Larimer they wondered about the possibility of visiting Africa themselves. They decided they’d have to “sell a lot more cookies!”
The girls enjoyed finding themselves featured in this W4W6 Oregonian report and we enjoyed having them participate in the Walk. As Emmanuel urged us in his opening remarks, As You Walk, be filled with joy….you are using your time to save lives. Thank you for contributing to the joy, Brownie Troop 40473!!
