On March 12, 2011 over 16,000 households pledged to PULL THE PLUG on vampire currents for 100 minutes thanks to 2,776 Girl Scouts who secured a minimum of 5 pledges each. Girls secured pledges from within the state of New Jersey as well as accross the United States. Reports from troops indicate pledges were secured from California, Texas, Florida, and Iowa. Thanks to technology, one troop even secured pledges from accross the Atlantic Ocean in England! Troop 30916 from Timbercreek shared, "The girls are all 5 year olds and this was the 1st time they ever did anything like this and they LOVED every minute of it!" Troop 72027 from LETS shared, "I thought this was a great project to raise awareness of how much energy each person/household can save." Many troops incorporated the program into the Journey they were working on like Troop 54120 from Wihe'Tonga who were learning about energy through Get Moving.
Just a reminder to troops who participated, your Troop Evaluation/Summary needs to be submitted in order for your troop to receive their patches. Contact Kimberly Reed with any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.
