Consider This Today.
Today is the DAY! This is when Lexington comes together for Give Big Lexington to raise awareness and promote generosity. From 12:00 a.m.-11:59 p.m., a share of every donation made to local nonprofits will be proportionately matched with funds provided by the Lexington Community Foundation and the 2013 LCF Event Sponsors!
This is an amazing opportunity for your donation to make a greater impact for the non-profits in your community since each donation will be matched!
Of course, this is my time to share all the awesome leadership and learning experiences that Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska is brining to the Lexington community. A few weeks ago I wrote about why I give to Girl Scouts – here are more examples of us bringing these experiences, as well as FUN, to girls in the Lexington area.
Kasi Michl, Outreach Specialist for Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska, is currently serving the schools of Lexington Middle School, Sandoz Elementary and Morton Elementary. There are currently a total of 50 girls at those schools being served by our outreach program, and of course, more are participating every day!
Lexington Middle school (LMS) had an adventure at Lakeview Cabin in North Platte, this past summer. During their outing, LMS students created a rain garden, which included planting a small garden with about 15 plants. This garden used water from a rain gutter to keep itself watered, thereby reducing runoff and erosion in the area. LMS students will also be doing a shoe drive in December for the Soles4Souls organization.
Morton and Sandoz are currently working on several Brownie and Junior activities, and are ready to earn badges like Painting, Celebrating Community, and Senses. In the spring they have field trips and service projects to look forward to.
So, if you are considering a Big Give Lexington donation…….please designate Girl Scouts Sprit of Nebraska. We are working everyday in that community to position girls for success in life. Your support totally makes a difference to the girls we serve.
Give BIG Lexington 2013 makes it easy to give to the causes that mean the most to you. Don’t wait, the clock is already ticking and the BIG GIVE is ON!!
