Girl Scouts of Western Washington

Today and always, we are deeply grateful for our Girl Scout community. 💚
Next week, help us open doors to the Girl Scout community by supporting our Facebook campaign on December 1. With your help, anyone can join Girl Scouts and start building the courage, confidence, and character necessary for lifelong leadership and success.

Our Goals:
Membership for 100 Girl Scouts ($2,500 or $25 per Girl Scout)
Activity supply grants for 100 Girl Scouts ($3,000 or $30 per Girl Scout)
Event grants for 100 Girl Scouts ($4,000 or $40 per Girl Scout)

Want to help, but can’t donate? Share the campaign () with your friends instead! If you’re a Girl Scout member or alum, let them know why you’re grateful to be a Girl Scout. Your story is the best reason for people in your life to help grow our community.

This Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, choose to support local small business owners in our community. Join us in amplifying their voices and celebrating their hard work! This third feature highlights @Estelita’s Library, Krakkendesignco, The Oula Company, and Enlight Candle Co.
📚
Estelita’s Library is a community bookstore on North Beacon Hill filled with books focused on social justice, ethnic studies, and liberation movements. Co-owners Edwin Lindo and Estell Williams opened with the goal to host community book talks, classes, meetings, history lessons, and so much more. While the store is closed to the public, you can shop their curated online library, where a portion of your purchase goes back to local bookstores.
Giveaway Item: “Let’s Talk About Race” illustrated book by Julius Lester

Heidi Xu’s small Olympia-based sticker business, Krakken Design Co., began as a simple way for her to purchase more art supplies in high school. It quickly became more meaningful, turning into a way that she could express and support herself. As a Girl Scout alum and current college student, Heidi sees how many aspects of attending school and selling stickers have “strong translational similarities to [her] experiences selling cookies with the troop.” You can find her artwork and stickers at her Etsy shop or online store.
Giveaway Item: “Take All the Time You Need” vinyl snail sticker.
👗
Girl Scout alumna Erika Massaquoi has been an art curator, Assistant Dean, a fashion journalist, professor, and currently flexes her brilliance as the founder and CEO of The Oula Company. Oula’s trans-seasonal clothing pieces use vibrant Ankara (African Wax Fabric), and versatile patterns in hopes that customers get a lifetime of use. When the pandemic surged, Erika pivoted her business to offer masks with the same materials and sustainable intent. All OULA garments are hand-cut and sewn locally in the USA. You can add a stylish piece to your wardrobe through her online store.
Giveaway Item: Adjustable (adult) face mask

At her full-time job, Brianne Kampbell is an estate planning lawyer in Gig Harbor. During some dark times a few years back, after 17 years of logistical and detail-orientated work, she felt the need to express her creative side and started Enlight Candle Co. Brianne sells 100% pure soy candles from U.S.-grown soybeans, wax melts, and reed diffusers in hopes of bringing light and beauty to the everyday. Bring some warmth and light into your home through her Etsy shop or online store.
Giveaway Item: 4 oz. Hello Fall candle – warm pumpkin, cinnamon, and clove scents

Girl Scouts of Western Washington

This year we are grateful for the collaboration, innovation, and resilience of our community. We recognize that while today is a day that many give thanks, we want to acknowledge that it is also a day of loss and mourning for some Native American tribes.

@GirlScoutsWW’s offices and properties in the western Washington region occupy the ancestral lands of many indigenous communities: Duwamish, Puget Sound Salish, Nisqually, Snohomish, Tulalip, Klallam, Twana/Skokomish, Chinook, Cowlitz, Chehalis, and Nooksack.

We have a responsibility to respect and honor the intimate relationship Indigenous Peoples have to this land —though displaced — they are the past, present, and future caretakers of this land.

This acknowledgment reminds us of how historical colonization has shaped our present and will continue to shape our future. Our work needs to be informed by that history.
