Honor Community Heroes with Cookies from the Heart

We have expanded our annual Gift of Caring campaign, which, until now, focused solely on donations to U.S. military personnel. This year, teachers, firefighters, police, EMTs, nurses and military personnel can be recipients of the Gift of Caring campaign– Cookies from the Heart.

Girl Scouts will accept donations during the pre-order phase and the booth sale phase. Orders can also be made online and Girl Scout troops can be given credit for the donation. More information about the new Gift of Caring program can be found on our website.

Who has the biggest heart?

We are challenging Girl Scout troops to collect Cookies from the Heart donations during the pre-order sale. Our Council goal is to collect 2,012 cases of cookies for our hometown heroes through Cookies for the Heart. The troop that collects the most donations will be featured on the cover of GirlsWorld and interviewed for a feature story for the GSCM Blog.

Participation in the contest is simple. While selling Girl Scout Cookies, girls can let customers know about the Cookies from the Heart campaign and encourage them to donate boxes of cookies. When your troop reports your pre-order numbers in eBudde, make sure donations are designated as such in the virtual Gift of Caring column in the eBudde system. That’s it! We’ll tally the numbers of the troops who submit their pre-order total by October 7, 2012 to see which troop has the most donations-and the Biggest Heart.
