The History of Girl Scouts

A girl in Chicago is living up to the Girl Scout Law. 

The law states in part that a scout will be “friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong.”

Anne Nelson, 11, won a trip to Walt Disney World for selling 5,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. But she didn’t want to keep the trip. She wanted to give it to a classmate with special needs, WLS reported

“Everyone should be kind to other people and generous because if someone wants to go somewhere or do something and they never have a chance to do it, it would make them feel amazing to do it,” Nelson told WLS Sunday.

She and the unidentified classmate were part of a ceremony at a Chicago Disney Store, WLS reported.

Anne said she had the idea to earn the trip for her friend thanks to a lesson at school about generosity.
