It all started in 1932 when Lady Olave Baden-Powell wrote a letter to all Girl Guides and Girls Scouts asking them to spare a penny to support Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting to grow. The idea is simple: one coin might not seem like a lot, but 10 million coins can grow our Movement and the potential of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world.

There are a million of us. I am not good at arithmetic and I will not make any calculations which may not come true. But a penny, or two cents, or four annas or enough centimes or groschen or Heller or Filler or ore to make the same value, is not an immense amount, especially when it is perhaps saved or earned and given with a willing hand.

Lady Olave Baden-Powell, 1 November 1932
