The Girl Scouts USA will be celebrating their 107 birthday on March 12. As you know, the organization has made some sharp turns from the days of Founder, Juliette Lowe. We have seen some recent headlines describing just how much things have changed like this: Girl Scouts Gives Its Highest Award to Teen Who Organized Campaign Promoting Abortion and political activism like this: Girl Scouts Celebrate Ocasio-Cortez, Andrew Cuomo, Michelle Obama, Jill Biden, Ruth Bader Ginsburg
AHG stands for Life and created a Respect Life Patch in 2015 to reinforce the organization’s commitment to honoring life from conception to natural death. Girls can earn the Respect Life Patch by participating in an event that brings attention to respecting life, or by providing a service project for an organization whose mission demonstrates a desire to respect life.
Girls in AHG go on to make a profound difference in their churches and communities. Stars & Stripes Award Recipient (AHG’s highest honor) and recent AHG Alumna Allison Pewett turned her desire to care for the rights of the unborn into action by making it the focus of her Stars & Stripes project, an endeavor that requires over 100 service hours from a candidate and her team of volunteers. Together with fellow Girl Members and other pro-life advocates from her local community, Allison set out to benefit Carried to Full Term (CTFT), a non-profit organization that provides assistance to mothers in crisis as a result of pregnancy. Thanks to her leadership over a team of devoted volunteers, Allison was able to donate a handcrafted storage cabinet, along with lovingly created items for mothers and children who would eventually stay with CTFT.
“I am especially passionate about fighting for the rights of the unborn. Through my project, I was able to benefit a wonderful organization that assists pregnant women in crisis. I feel that God has influenced me greatly in this area, and I hope that one day, I will be able to help the pro-life movement even more,” said Allison. These are the stories that will transform audiences.
