I’m excited to announce that Girl Scouts of Colorado is launching a first-ever Cookie Social Media Day during the 2013 Cookie Program! So mark your calendar, share the information with friends and family, and we look forward to having you participate! (Cookie Social Media Day is part of National Girl Scout Cookie Day on Feb. 8th.)
Cookie Social Media Day 2013
On Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, which is the date for Cookie Social Media Day and the first day of Girl Scout Cookie Booth Sales in Colorado, we want everyone, from our girl members, adult volunteers, families, donors, partners, alumnae, staff and friends to be talking about Girl Scout Cookie time on social media. Our goal is to show the community the real-life skills they are supporting when they buy Girl Scouts Cookies.
Participating is easy!
1. Log on to Facebook or Twitter at any time on Friday, Feb. 8.
2. Post a personal message/story about Girl Scout Cookie time. You are encouraged to incorporate the 5 Skills Girls learn by selling Girl Scout Cookies (Goal-Setting, Decision-Making, Money Management, People Skills, Business Ethics). And feel free to share a photo or two if you want as well. Sample messages:
Facebook: It’s @ Girl Scouts of Colorado Cookie time! I very much credit my goal-setting skills to when I sold Girl Scout Cookies as a young girl (see the photo of me at age 8 here). Without those skills I don’t think I would have had what it takes to start my own business. Did you sell Girl Scout Cookies or know someone who did? What did you/they learn? See more about Girl Scout Cookie time in Colorado at www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org.
Twitter: Girl Scout Cookies helped my daughter become a math whiz. What’s your #gscocookies story? girlscoutsofcolorado.org @GSColo
Update 1/23/13: If you don’t have a personal Girl Scout connection, you can still show support for Girl Scout Cookie time on National Girl Scout Cookie Day Feb. 8th by posting a message like this on your personal (or company) social media:
