Send your volunteers a heartfelt email thanking them for all they do for the girls during the year. Don’t forget to attach some wacky pictures of you two!
Everyone loves getting a handwritten note in the mail. Early in the week, write a fun letter to your volunteers and mail them using the good old fashioned mailbox. Be sure to use some colorful pens and stickers to jazz it up!
One day during the week, send your volunteer a happy text. Feel free to add in your favorite emojis to summarize your appreciation. I mean, a smiley face with jazz hands?! Who wouldn’t love that?
Tag, You’re it!
Post a cute picture or pic collage to social media. Hit up all the best sites (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) so your volunteer is bombarded with love! Be sure to tag @GirlScoutsATL so we can repost!
Sing Like a Canary
Leave a sweet voicemail for your volunteer. Maybe create your own rendition of “for (s)he’s a jolly good fellow!”
But First, Coffee!
Invite your special volunteer out for a quick coffee break. Or, if schedules are tight, buy her favorite frappe-cappa-mocha-whatever and drop it by her house or office.
Sweet Little Something
Bake some cookies or cupcakes and bring them to your volunteer. If you have a troop meeting this week, you might want to double the batch...Girl Scouts love cookies!
Nothing brings a smile to your face after a long day than a colorful balloon tied to your mailbox. Spread cheer by tying a balloon in your volunteer’s favorite color to her mailbox while she’s away.
And a Five, Six, Seven, Eight...
If you have a troop meeting this week, ask your girls to perform a sweet poem, song, or dance for your leader. What about a little “make new friends, but keep the old” ended with a big “thank you!!”
