Susan spent Thursday evening with a Girl Scout Service Unit in Huntington Beach, CA telling them about the efforts of Binky Patrol for the victims, families and rescue workers in the East. Many troops with be joining Binky Patrol this year, not only for this immediate need, but for the continued need for binkies to comfort children and teens.
Two girl scouts stood before this group of around 60 troop leaders and told of their efforts to help. These sisters were ages 9 and 6. On their own, they’ve made flag pins out of safety pins and beads to sell to raise money for the rescue workers and their families.Up to that moment, they had earned over $150. By the end of that meeting, I’m sure it doubled. This girls continue to prove how compassionate children can be and how they need to help and participate when possible. These two girls are making a difference.
