Did you know that when your girl participates in the cookie sale she takes cookie orders, handles customers’ money, and gains valuable and practical life skills around financial literacy?
“Working with my Girl Scout team to sell cookies, I’ve learned a whole lot about money. I now see how it works, how a business is run on it, and why money matters not just to me but to everyone. I see how it can do good for the world if used right. And how you have to watch not just the money coming in, but the money you spend. I’ve also learned how to better manage it. Now, I think twice before I buy something with my own money—or at least come up with a better reason to ask mom for more.”
