Dear Girl Scout families,
Thank you for participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program, the country’s number
one entrepreneurial training program for girls. Occasionally I’m asked “why should my
daughter sell cookies when I can just give her troop a donation.” It’s one of the easiest
questions I get.
It’s true that the cookie sale funds the majority of our council’s programs, activities, and camps, and we are grateful
to all our volunteers and customers for your wonderful support! But that’s not why we think the Cookie Sale
Program is such an important part of the Girl Scout experience. It’s what the girls gain while participating in the
program – self confidence, the thrill of meeting and exceeding goals, budgeting skills, teamwork, time management,
networking, excellent customer service and gracefully handling rejection and success. Many successful women will
tell you they learned many of their key business skills selling Girl Scout cookies in their youth.
Thank you for giving your girls the opportunity to learn these great life skills. Through Girl Scouting, she is building
courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place.
