Complete a scouting activity to earn this patch.

After she established troops in Scotland and London she moved back to the USA to start a group in Savannah Georgia with her niece and her friends. The first meeting was March 12,1912 and it had 18 girls. She was 50 years old and she wanted to teach girls skills and leadership. She started her first headquarters in the carriage house next to the home she lived in, the Andrew Low. In 1913, Juliette Low created the first handbook for the Scouts called “How Girls Can Help Their Country”. Daisy’s income had decreased due to the war so she sold her valuable pearls to keep the program going. She began asking for donations to help the program and collected registration fees to pay for supplies and uniforms. The girls wore their uniforms to volunteering where needed during the war such as rolling bandages, assisting the Red Cross, creating puzzle cards for wounded soldiers, knitting scarves, and earning badges while they were helping others. Juliette Low approached the President Woodrow Wilson’s first lady Edith Wilson to be the honorary president of scouting for girls.
