My dad is the best Cookie Dad ever! He has been helping me and my troop reach our Girl Scout Cookie goals for four years! Even though he’s in the military and often gone, he’s always been there for me during cookie season. He can set up a booth in three minutes flat and break it down just as fast! He comes up with cookies songs, dances, and selling strategies for us. He helps me make selling signs and can carry six cases of cookies at one time! He’s at almost all of my cookie booths and we do a LOT of them. It doesn’t matter if it is raining, freezing, snowing, or if he has to wear a cookie costume, he’s there, helping me sell cookies and encouraging me to reach my cookie goal. I’m so proud that he’s my dad! ~Brianna (9 years old)
My name is Mackenzie and this is my second year in Girl Scout Troop 46325. Last year, I set my cookie goal at 1,000 packages. Thanks to my dad’s help and support, I passed my goal. So this year, I set my goal to 2,000 packages. I am half way there thanks to my awesome Cookie Dad. My dad takes me to family and friends houses, businesses, helps me get special booths, and takes me door-to-door. He pushes me to do better and helps me work hard to reach my goals in Girl Scouts, 4H, school, and everywhere else in life. I have the best Cookie Dad and I am lucky to have him. If everyone had a dad like mine, the world would be a better place.
I like to set my goals high to show everyone that through hard work and believing in yourself, anything is possible. Girl Scouts helps me do that in all areas of life. Girl Scouts has helped me find my voice, break out of my shell, and experience news things that I couldn’t before.
Ella’s dad is a truck driver and gone most of the week, but on the weekends he is home. During cookie season, he is helping out, even when he could be home resting. He helps get cookies, helps load booth supplies, and takes Ella out selling around the neighborhood. This year, they went out selling after a blizzard and used a sled to transport the cookies door-to-door.
Ashlyn’s dad, Matt H., is amazing! He goes to all the booths with his daughter, is willing to pick up extra booths, encourages other dads to participate, and helps me, the TCM, anyway he can. Matt makes cookie season fun for everyone!
Not only did my dad go to the day of pick-up with my grandma’s truck and trailer to get all my troop’s first cookie order, once we got them to our house, he helped unload and separate all the cookies and helped load the cookies into the girls’ cars once they came to pick up their cookies.
My name is Abigail and I have been selling Girl Scout Cookies for six years! My dad was my very first customer six years ago and he still helps me sell cookies all these years later. We go to booths together and he helps me reach my big goal.
My dad is the best Girl Scout Cookie Dad because he has helped me learn how to talk to customers, count money, and reach my cookie selling goal. He joined me for three cookie booths, around the block with my little wagon (he helped me decorate), and he even took cookies to work! He is patient, loving, and amazing! He goes to my Girl Scout meetings and all of our events without even thinking twice about it. I love my dad with all my heart.
This is my first year in Girl Scouts and I had no idea what to expect when it came cookie selling time. Luckily, I have a really great dad who has helped me figure it out. Not only does my dad help me sell (by walking with me, coaching me on what to say, helping me add costs, etc.), he has also helped me sell cookies to his co-workers.
Since I am in school during the day, my dad has marketed our troop’s cookie sales to everyone at his work. He has spoken to people and handed out order forms, but the best way he has helped market our cookie sales is by wearing my Daisy tunic at work. Haha! He has no shame and is willing to do what it takes to help me and my troop. His co-workers love it and I think it helped me sell. My goal was 200 packages and I’ve sold over 400! Thanks for the help, Dad!
Our supportive Cookie Dad is Galen B. When we decided to sign up not only as a Girl Scout Daisy, but a troop leader as well, he was very supportive. He was excited for us and our journey. I told him how many cookies we were getting to start, 150 packages and he was surprised, but he was like, “You can sell those, easy!”
Even when we picked up 150 more (when we still had the 150), he was still supportive and in awe of our drive and determination.
I asked my husband if he could use my daughter’s playmarket base to make her a fun cookie booth. I explained what I wanted it to look like and off he went to Lowe’s. He was able to purchase the supplies for about $40 and came home to build it. Within a few hours, he was done. I purchased some Girl Scout Cookie fabric and got some green ribbon and felt from a friend. A day later we had a cute and very fun cookie booth! We have gotten so many compliments about our cookie booth. We owe it all to our super “gung-ho” cookie dad who supports all we do!
Sophia is a determined young lady. She loves to try new things and is always up for a challenge. Not only is she starting ballet (her second year), she is very excited about being a Daisy! She is excited for all the activities and journeys for this year. She is especially excited for our trip to Great Wolf Lodge (with all her hard earned cookie money!)
We are so blessed to have the Girl Scout opportunity, we are excited to see where Girl Scouts will take our daughter, and what doors it will open!
