Country-pop-music-sensation/good-girl Taylor Swift recently celebrated her 20th birthday by giving $250K to the US education system (read story). As if we didn't have enough reason to love this squeaky clean, polite, talented young lady already!
Besides being a good piece of celeb news, Taylor's generous birthday gift provides Girl Scouts with a good lesson at the holidays - it really isn't about the gifts you get, it's about the gifts you give.
If you would like to use Taylor's example as you speak to your Girl Scout about giving back, consider working in the following.
- Taylor gave to education because its important to her. What is important to you?
- If you can't give $250K (that's OK!), how can you help your community?
- What can you do right now to help others?
For more ideas about giving back, check out the service projects Web page or read stories from Girl Scouts who are making the world a better place.
