Girl Scouts reject anti-transgender donation, triple amount

The Girl Scouts of Western Washington recently rejected a $100,000 donation to help send girls to camp because the donor asked that the money not be used to help transgender kids.

Taking to Indiegogo and social media with a #ForEveryGirl campaign, the Girl Scouts organization has more than tripled the original amount. To date, $327,583 has been raised in 7 days.

Girl Scouts of Western Washington posted this update today:

So far, you’ve made sure that more than 1,500 girls can join a troop, go to camp and participate in a multitude of life-changing Girl Scout experiences. We are incredibly humbled and thrilled to see so many people from across the globe support this campaign, share their story, and spread the message that EVERY girl matters.
