Global Action 2015

It doesn't really get much easier than Thinking Day and Global action. Both are earned badges now and go on the front of the uniform. Just as the Thinking Day badge, Global Action only required one completed activity to earn it. 

You can find more information about the Global Action Badge here:

To complete our Global Action 2015, we chose #4:
4. Treat your mom to a cup of tea or coffee. Talk to her or another mother you know about the joys and challenges mothers face every day in raising children. Write a short essay describing her experience and reflect your gratitude for what she does. (Millennium Development Goal: Keeping mothers healthy)

We made a Friendship Tea mix in our troop meeting and each girl was sent home with a jar
of the mix and instructions on how to make the tea. They were told to be on the Girl Scout honor to complete the task of having a cup with their Mom or mother figure and discuss the joys and challenges she has faced. I also tasked them to learn something about their Mom that they didn't know before.

Here is the Friendship Tea mix recipe:

Friendship Tea
From Mavis Bowin (A dear, sweet, amazing Girl Scout friend and sister)

2 c instant orange drink (Tang)
3 c instant tea
1 3z pkg lemonade mix (eliminate if you use instant tea with lemon)
3 c sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground clove

Mix well, store in airtight container. Use 2-3 tsp to taste to cup of hot water.
