Girl Scouts of the USA had declared February 8 as National Girl Scout Cookie Day. Why? To increase national awareness of what the Girl Scout Cookie Program does for girls and their communities, of course!
Nationally and locally, the GS Counsel works with media to get the word out about 4 key messages:
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the biggest girl-led business in the world, generating $790 million in annual sales.
Girls sell more than 200 million cookie packages a year to more than 50 million cookie customers.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program builds 5 essential life skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
With their Girl Scout Cookie Program earnings, girls fund important community projects at the local level.
What can you do? Help spread the word about National Girl Scout Cookie sales! Share the news with your friends and family on your Facebook page. You can even change your cover photo or profile picture to show your support.
You can even tweet about #5Skills or encourage your followers to purchase #onemorebox of #girlscoutcookies.
Most importantly, celebrate! National Girl Scout Cookie Day is a day to celebrate all the wonderful skills girls learn through the Girl Scout Cookie Program as part of their Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Take extra time to tell your Girl Scouts how proud you are of them!
