Girl Scout Kindness

April 16th, 2011

4-16-11Savannah is a very popular place to visit for many reasons. One reason for school age girls and their families is that the Girl Scouts of America was founded here by Juliette Gordon Low. One such group of 3 moms and 4 girls from North Carolina happened by the bus as they walked the streets of this beautiful city. I was so impressed by the connection of goodness shared by this group of 7. I told the girls that their moms would never steer them wrong, the moms immediately jumped in and told their daughters to “make sure to listen to this man.”
The Girl Scouts are all about kindness; teaching, leadership skills, supporting events like the relief effort in Japan and helping to make our world a better place. It is one of the best organizations for girls in the world.
Today was a very long day of talking with hundreds of people, many of them families, my favorite group. It was also a day of much fun. One of my favorite vignettes was when a full tour bus rounded the corner right next to The Kindness Bus, the driver said to his charge, “On your right is the One Million Acts Of Kindness bus, I don’t know if it is part of Savannah, but it should be.” Being here for seventeen days in December makes us look like we a permanent fixture.
