The 24th Guides have been getting into festive spirit by making crafts and decorating cookies at their most recent meetings. Some favourites have included making calendars to count down to fun holiday days.
In addition to the crafts the girls made for themselves, the unit also made crafts for a CWFF fundraiser craft sale. The CWFF is the Canadian World Friendship Fund, and it supports Canadian Girl Guides getting involved internationally with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
According to our national website, “The Canadian World Friendship Fund is maintained through voluntary contributions from members and friends of Guiding, to help our members to experience Guiding internationally. It offers financial assistance to adult members who have been selected to accompany girls on nationally sponsored trips, to members attending international Guiding events as GGC representatives, and to girls and adults from other Guiding countries visiting Canada for special events.”
All Burnaby Mountain District units have been challenged to do a CWFF fundraiser this year. Way to go, Guides — we hope your craft sale was a success!
