When I was younger, I desperately wanted to join the Girl Guides. Friends of our family had children that had joined and always had such amazing stories about their adventures. I was so jealous, however due to living in a rural area, we didn’t have any associations close by so I had to live vicariously through my friends. Looking back, not only were my friends having fun, they were also learning business skills by selling biscuits to raise funds for their activities.

Girl Guides Australia’s much-loved annual Biscuit Drive is taking place in May this year,
when thousands of girls will set up biscuit stalls to fundraise for their Guiding activities and we as a community can support them in any way we can.

Having a daughter of my own, it makes me so happy that Girl Guides Australia exists to
foster our future leaders by giving girls a chance to fund programs and activities that
empower girls, develop leadership and valuable life skills, boost confidence, financial
literacy, awareness against body image stereotypes and gender-based violence to help girls reach their full potential in life.

This year’s Girl Guides campaign is about “More Than A Biscuit”, it’s a celebration of the diversity, confidence, empowerment and friendship of Girl Guides, and is a chance to recognise the important role the broader community plays in supporting Girl Guides and their activities.

This is where you and I come in.

If you would like to support the Girl Guides, please reach out to young girls in your
community. Girl Guides Biscuits can be purchased through your local Girl Guides Units and from State offices while stocks last.
