On Friday May 17th, Moorpark CA Brownie Troop #65539 invited Binky Patrol volunteer Carolyn Berndt to their last meeting of the spring semester to make fleece blankets.  The sweet girls were 3rd and 4th graders and are all about “being purple”, which means being an everyday superhero who spreads kindness, and laughter, and reminds us that everyone is perfectly and uniquely themselves!  Each of the 6 girls (with the help of 3 moms) tied a soft, fuzzy, colorful blanket.  2 other binkies that had been made before were added to the donation stack.  A great time was had by all!!

Troop leader, Karen Abram, shared this story about what being purple means to their troop.

As for “being purple” – this started at the beginning of our Brownie journey last year when we read “The World Needs More Purple People.” That first year, we focused on the values of what it means to be a purple – an everyday superhero who spreads kindness, laughter and reminds us that you are perfectly and uniquely you. The second year of Brownies, we focused on finding ways to spread the purple message. Here is a video of them practicing and explaining what it means to be purple:
