Big Brownie Birthday Challenge: Candles

As part of the Big Brownie Birthday Challenge, we are planning a little community outreach. It makes us more visible, but should also let our Brownies know that they are part of an organisation that has lasted a long time.

This week we delivered leaflets to 400 houses around our meeting place. Each six had roughly 100 leaflets, plus two adults to supervise, and posted the leaflets through the doors. My husband, unaware of what we were doing, said there was lots of giggling in the street and he wondered what it was, it was one of our very excited sixes!

The leaflets said who we are, talked about the Big Brownie Birthday, and asked any house with a Brownie or former Brownie to get in touch by the end of the month.

We will then decorate a candle holder for the people that contact us and each Brownie will have a few to deliver with her parents during the February half term.

And finally, we asked those people to light the candle for a specific hour, and we will go round and see them shining out, helping those former Brownies to be part of the birthday, and letting our girls see they are part of something so much bigger than just us.

That's the aim, cross your fingers for us!
