Friendship Bracelet Project

About the Project

We are inviting Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from all over the world to make friendship bracelets and to spread the Sangam Spirit!

Make a bracelet to give or sell to a friend, and then share with them something you have learned about Sangam. When you pass on your bracelet, you can share the Sangam Spirit by explaining why you made the bracelet, what you learned, when you hope to visit Sangam, or your favourite Sangam experience.

We would also like to help promote WAGGGS’ Stop the Violence campaign through our
friendship bracelet project. Learn about the campaign and make your bracelets in the red and green colours of the campaign. This will help us to keep building the whisper into a shout!

Thank you for your friendship and support. We hope you enjoy making your friendship bracelets, and we look forward to receiving your stories of sharing the international friendship of Sangam World Centre!

 

Friendship Bracelet Project FAQs

What is the point of the project?

‘Sangam’ means ‘coming together’ and we, along with the other World Centres, are a meeting point for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from around the world. We want to celebrate and share that international friendship, and bracelets seemed like the perfect way to do this.

The project also gives you a way to start spreading the word about WAGGGS, your own experiences of Guiding/Girl Scouting, or to advertise your troop/unit. Make some extra ones and give them to a friend, and when you do so, tell them about Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting and why it’s such an amazing thing to be a part of.

I thought we could send you our bracelets?

Because we have had such a successful few years of our Friendship Bracelet Project, we are packed to the brim with Friendship Bracelets! Instead of sending them to us, share your friendship bracelets with your friends and family. You could even donate the funds you would have used to post them to our Save Our Pool campaign!

Who came up with the project? Is it a WAGGGS thing?

This project is a Sangam initiative. It was conceived quite a while ago by a volunteer, and was put into action by our 2011 staff and volunteer team.

How can I find out more?

Just sending off a large package of bracelets from the 5th Carter Guides in Sackville, NS Canada. We did an all year challenge to make them last year and are happy to have them on their way. (The winning patrol was the Red Rose patrol - they made the most.)

Meet a nice lady, Lori, at a GS event in Washington, DC who told us about this project, so my daughter is making bracelets as I write this. Hope to get my troop and community involved and ship out a lot of bracelets.
