Idea of the Week – December 4

Posted on: December 4, 2007

Hey Everybody,

Happy December! December is one of my favorite months of the year because of all the wonderful holiday cheer. While I love to celebrate the holidays, I am also aware that some people are not as fortunate as I am. That’s why I’ve decided to make the month of December all about giving to those in need.

So, for the first week of giving try this idea of the week: Ask your school if you can put on a bake sale to earn money for a cause. Choose a campaign, shelter, or organization to donate the money to. Then, ask each of your friends to bake something to sell. If you’re involved in a club or sport at school, you could even ask the other members to bake something as well. Remember when you’re donating to a cause in need, every penny counts.

I’m sure you will all do a fantastic job! Good luck!

That’s all for now,

P.S. Be sure to check out our announcement for the Grand Prize winner of the Reel Girls, Reel Life contest!! And as always, check out the Girl Talk website for all things Girl!

Each week Girl Talk brings you the Idea of the Week filled with fun and creative alternatives to drinking alcohol. It may seem that all your friends are spending their time partying and you’re probably thinking your only option is to join in. But research shows: nearly 75% of girls drink alcohol “to fit in.” That means many girls are making bad (and illegal!) choices because they feel like they need to. Do you want to suffer the negative consequences that come with underage drinking? Here’s my advice: be the cool girl who finds something else to do instead – you’ll probably find that other girls around you will be thankful and relieved to have something fun and safe to do!

What is Girl Talk?

Girl Talk informs teen girls about the choices and consequences of underage drinking. Girl Talk’s website, www.grltlk.org, is a fun place for all things GIRL and encourages girls to live healthy and active lifestyles by providing them with the resources to do so.

A Note About grltlk.org

You may have noticed that grltlk.org is now being redirected here, to our Girl Talk blog. We are currently doing a bit of maintenance on the site but it'll be back up soon! So just take note that some of the links you click here on our blog may redirect you back here instead of to grltlk.org until it is re-vamped!
