Girl Scout cookies are an American Icon, a worthy purchase that goes back into supporting local Girl Scouts in your area.
I look back at my Girl Scout years fondly. There was so much creative spirit and camaraderie in the tasks and events we were involved in. The friendships, the camp outs, will there ever be a better time in a young girl’s life?
The girl scout cookie campaign is where I found my competitive edge. Earning my badges was a thrill, the cookie campaign was exciting when I filled out the whole form and needed another page for more orders.
A bit of trivia: Look who else was a Girl Scout:
Sandra Day O’Connor
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Mary Tyler Moore
Susan Taylor (Essence magazine)
Virginia Edwards (Education Week)
Absolutely count on me for buying a box or three of thin mints, no-the samoas, or maybe the peanut butter patties. Oh what the heck, I’ll buy them all! I can give them away as gifts.
All of the proceeds—every penny—from a local council’s cookie activities remains in the area where the cookies are sold. This revenue is used to benefit girls, some of it directly by remaining in the Girl Scout troop/group treasury and some of it indirectly by subsidizing the cost of providing the Girl Scout program in the local area.
