The Other Rules of Fight Club
Sure you know the first few rules, and yeah we’re breaking the first two by just mentioning it here (I’m guessing they intended for us not to blog about Fight Club, though that could be open to interpretation), but did you know that, once administration got involved, there were even more rules added to Fight Club? To make it a more enjoyable experience, of course… because any good system needs rules, otherwise it’s just mayhem.

4 Awesome Reasons to Support the Girl Scouts
“Who doesn’t love the Girl Scouts?! Since Girl Scout Cookie season started a few weeks ago, the memories of my time as a Girl Scout have been overwhelming and positive. I’m glad to support an organization with such important values. Children need this type of support to ensure a positive future.
Here is a list of four awesome reasons to support the Girl Scouts of America. Whether you buy their cookies, encourage a young girl to join, donate to the organization, or just spread the word about their good work, you will be doing an important service for the future of our country’s young women.
1. Create a better future of smart, confident young women.
I have fond memories of being a girl scout in elementary school. From making friends to learning to fun activities and crafts, there’s so many positives about being a Girl Scout. The program not only gives young girls something safe and structured to do, but also gives them a sense of empowerment and leadership.
The skills learned in Girl Scouts can be translated and applied to all aspects of life. By supporting the Girl Scouts organization, we can help girls learn these skills in a positive environment at a young age.
2. Girl Scout Cookies
Besides the delicious cookies, there are tons of benefits of the Girl Scout Cookies. Selling cookies also gives girls experience with goal setting, money management, decision making, business ethics, and people skills.
“With every purchase, approximately 70% of the proceeds stays in the local Girl Scout council and with troops to provide a portion of the resources needed to support Girl Scouting in that area, including the portion that goes directly to the group selling the cookies. The balance goes to the baker to pay for the cookies.”
3. Connections to Other Organizations Worthy of Your Support
Check out a Timeline of Girl Scouts’ Connections with Planned Parenthood, United Nations & More from Honest Girl Scouts and a list of the official affiliates of the Girl Scouts.For more than 100 years, the Girl Scots have been connected to organizations such as Planned Parenthood, the EPA, the Peace Corps, and the United Nations.
Girl Scouts are diverse and this is more important and less common than most people think. By focusing on equality in gender, race and class, the Girl Scouts teach the next generations to be more tolerant and equal.
LGBT-inclusive policies, policy updates to include transgender members, and sponsors of all kinds – the Girl Scouts of America have every right to be proud of their organizational culture, especially when the Boy Scouts are so far behind.”
