Daisy Leaf: Making Choices
Do you know the difference between a want and a need? Both cost money. Do you know how much the things you want and need cost? Have you ever had to choose between a want and a need? And what happens when someone can't afford the things they need?
Find out more about making choices by following these three steps. Please refer to your Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for specific instructions and activities:
- Find out the difference between needs and wants
- Try setting a goal to save for what you want
- Help others with what they need and want
When you've earned your Making Choices Daisy Leaf, you'll know more about how to make choices about using money and how to help others.
Inspired by helping others with the things they need - consider helping your sister Girl Scouts or a charity in your community.

"When you get an idea that will do good, follow it up, and don't fear that because it is only you, it cannot succeed."
-Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low
Service is an inherent part of Girl Scouting. No matter at what age a girl joins, she can share in meaningful projects that promote civic responsibility and see how her efforts can impact her community. At the Girl Scout Daisy level, community service can include simple things like planting flowers in abandoned lots and visiting senior centers.
Let's make December Community Service Month
in Southern Nevada! Volunteer with you troop or as a family. Donate toys, food, or blankets to those in need. Whatever interests you. Patches are also available in the council shop to recognize your girl for her hard work.
Be sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org
with photos of your girl in action! Your Girl Scout Daisy might be featured in future newsletters, our website, and more!
