Girl Scouts of the USA has 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, we’ll be working 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 Day! Share the news about this exciting day with your friends and family on your Facebook page. You can even change your cover photo or profile picture to show your support.
On February 8th, tweet about #5Skills or encourage your followers to purchase #onemorebox of #girlscoutcookies.
Girls can purchase a fun patch at a local GSMH retail shop to proudly proclaim their participation in the Girl Scout Cookie Program and National Girl Scout Cookie Day.
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 and let them know that all of us at Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland are proud of them too!
