Scouts' honour creates perfect Paris bedroom for teenager
Published: 26 April 2010
Honour from the Scouts is not a new concept, though it is continually promoted; this month, a few Girl Scouts redecorated a bedroom for someone in a less advantageous situation than them, using bedding and bed linen in their creation.A teenager with a chronic illness has been given a taste of Paris in her newly-decorated bedroom following the hard work of Girl Scouts in the locale.
Living in the US state of Georgia, Victoria McCandless wept tears of joy after she walked into her French capital-themed boudoir for the first time following five months of hard work from the Macon Girl Scouts Troop 463.
Using bed linen, bedding and other items following inspiration from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the girls decorated and painted the room for Victoria - who suffers from the chronic illness known as short bowel syndrome - to give her the visit to France she cannot otherwise fulfil.
The Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame Cathedral were all used in the design through ornaments and paintings.
Girl Scouts participating in the wonderful gesture received the gold award - the highest honour in their organisation - for their hard work.
The major activity usually associated with Girl Scouts in the US is cookie sales, which are carried out door-to-door in order to raise money for charity.
