Need Money to Fund Your Troop Activities?
What are you waiting for? The ME2 Magazine Sale is in full swing! Troops earn 15% of the girl’s sales.
Girls can register individually online at www.girlscoutmagazines.com/gscm and create their Me2, an avatar that looks like them. Next they simply send emails to friends and family asking them to purchase magazines that will support their troop and Girl Scouts of Central Maryland. It’s so easy and fun for the girls to learn e-commerce and e-marketing skills. The more emails sent, the more sales made. And remember: your family and friends want to support your goals!
Here’s all your Girl Scout needs to know to get started:
- Her Council (Girl Scouts of Central Maryland)
- Her Troop Number
There is no work involved for the adult troop volunteers. One troop volunteer can login into the system to track their girl’s progress. The troop will earn 15% of the troop girl’s sales.
Girls can earn patches too!
- The “#Sparkle” patch for sending 15 emails.
- The “Do the Bright Thing” patch for selling 1 magazine
- The “Dare to Dazzle” Patch for selling 3 magazines
- Plus: if a girl sells 6 magazine subscriptions she will earn a personalized patch with her name and Me2 avatar.
- One troop leader per troop can earn a volunteer avatar patch if she logs into the online system and the troop reaches $250.00 in total troop sales
Also, for all of the girls who sold 100 boxes of cookies in the Girl Scout Cookie program, you are eligible to receive the patch below. All you have to do is send out 15 emails in the magazine program and you will earn this once in a lifetime patch.
Here is the sales link again: www.girlscoutmagazines.com/gscm. HURRY, the sale ends March 31, 2017!
