World Think Day, formerly known as Think Day, is celebrated annually on February 22 by all Girl Scouts. The day is also celebrated by Boy Scouts and Scout organizations around the world.
World Think Day has been celebrated since 1926 as the International Day of Friendship. It's an opportunity to speak out on issues affecting young women and raise funds for 10 million Girl Scouts and Guides in 150 countries.
At the 7th World Congress in Poland, a Belgian delegate suggested not only expressing appreciation and friendship to the girls by exchanging wishes, but also giving typical birthday gifts in the form of voluntary donations to the World Guides Federation.
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Guides chooses a theme and proposes associated activities for each World Day of Remembrance.
