Today is the day to get the word out about the Girl Scout Cookie Program! We want everyone to know that the cookie programs is the largest girl-led business in the world, generating $790 million in cookie sales. In addition girls sell over 200 million cookie packages a year to more than 50 million cookie customers.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is about more than just selling cookies. Girls are learning essential life skills that will carry them through Girl Scouts and life: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics.
Not only that but we want to get the word out that with their cookie proceeds girls fund important community projects at the local level. Projects that they may not otherwise have the funds to do!
Help us get the word out today about how great the cookie program is for GIRLS! We encourage you to share our posts on Facebook and retweet us on Twitter! And of course let us know what you’re doing to celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Day!
