The Daisies for Daisy campaign is a grassroots salute to Juliette Gordon ‘Daisy’ Low. The Girl Scouts’ organization is celebrating its 100th Anniversary in 2012.
The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace has an iPhone app that points to 100th Anniversary activities. Green Palm Inn in downtown Savannah is geo spotted in the Daisies for Daisy portion of the iPhone app.
Backstory. The Daisies idea came from marketing executive Sandy Traub, also a Savannah native. It is beingcommunicated by word of mouth and through Twitter — @DaisiesforDaisy. “Daisies for Daisy came out of frustration. Practically, what could any one person or business do to applaud one of Savannah’s greatest achievers and famous citizens? Savannah is not the bright lights of New York City, and there are no big budgets to do a ticker-tape style campaign. So, this low key daisy tribute is more in tune with the economy and, actually, is the proper southern thing to do when one is entertaining guests. It fits! Savannah is a town that is renown for always being dressed for company. The City of Savannah staffers, citizens and businesses are helping to entertain visitors everyday! I’m thrilled that the City of Savannah, and Park and Tree administrators chose to showcase Daisies for Daisy in front of City Hall, in several downtown city squares, and near the iconic Forsyth Fountain.”
Get away to Savannah (best enjoyed at historical inns) in 2012 to catch the wave of enthusiasm in the city where Girl Scouting began! Located in the Landmark Savannah Historic District, the Green Palm Inn (once two seamen cottages) offers a bed and breakfast near many Girl Scouts historical spots and activities.
