Did you know that you can order FREE swag from Girl Guides of Canada – Ontario provincial office?!!!
I didn’t!!!! A year into GGC, and I’m still learning new things. Grrr.
You can order on this website but you need your IMIS number handy to do so. This site only works for members in Ontario and Nunavut, but I’m sure the other regions also have their own provincial swag stores.
These items are usually given to the girls at their first meeting in a little sway bag to take home. Bracelets, stickers, buttons, bookmarks … it helps them to feel excited and it helps parents to feel like all the money they put into the program is coming back to their daughters.
They are also used for cookie sale events and for parade events, to be handed out to children and parents and promote the GGC brand.
I recommend that you order ASAP because a lot of things are out of stock already. Especially if you are looking for English-language items. It is also handy to have some of the girl and volunteer postcards at your cookie sale event booths, for potential new adult and girl members (remember, they can join at any point in the year!)
