Girl Scout Cookie time is here! I’ve already broken open a few packages and am enjoying every bite of these yummy treats.
But, being a lifelong Girl Scout, I also know these yummy treats benefit something really special here in our community. You see, Girl Scout Cookies help fund everything Girl Scouts, from our camps to our programs. Our Girl Scouts also use their money to travel the world, or to make a difference in their community through a take action project. Through all these experiences, girls are gaining lifelong skills, and most importantly become community leaders who will continue to make a positive difference in this world. I know for me personally Girl Scouts has made me the person I am today. I know I learned every one of the five skills that we teach girls during cookie time, and use each one of them daily — goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
On Feb. 8th, National Girl Scout Cookie Day, you can help Girl Scouts of Colorado spread the word on why Girl Scout Cookie time is so important to the girls. Just take to your (or your company’s) Facebook or Twitter that day, and talk about Girl Scout Cookie time. Share a personal story like mine, or talk about what you’ve learned about Girl Scouts and why you should support Girl Scouts by purchasing cookies. Link to the Girl Scouts of Colorado website (www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org) for all the details on buying cookies. We will also be giving away free Girl Scout Cookies on Facebook and Twitter throughout National Girl Scout Cookie Day.
Thank you for your support of Girl Scouts of Colorado! And we look forward to celebrating National Girl Scout Cookie Day with you on Friday!!
