Today we’re wishing Girl Scouts the happiest of birthdays yet because, well… it’s the least we can do, considering all they’ve done for us. Maybe you’ve worn the khaki or green vest with pride, or maybe you’re simply a faithful cookie connoisseur, but chances are you have been influenced by the Girl Scouts and their mission to empower girls at some point in your life! For 104 years now, this organization has been “building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place,” and we can’t think of a better mission statement ourselves. Apparently we’re not the only ones… even Shadowhunters star and former Justine cover girl Kat McNamara took the pledge back in the day. And she’s not the only star who has rocked the uniform! Dakota Fanning, Abigail Breslin and even Taylor Swift were members… just in case you needed any more proof that GS is doing something right! See what Kat has to say about the impact Girl Scouts had on her, and join us in chowing down on a few extra celebratory Thin Mints (and Tagalongs, and Samoas, and…) in honor of the big day!
