The November VINE

It’s Cookie Booth Time!

This cookie season, show cookie customers how the iconic Girl Scout Cookie Program (the largest girl-led entrepreneurial business in the world!) prepares girls in their communities to lead, learn, and succeed. All while making it possible for them to embark on amazing adventures and form a lifetime of memories! 

When talking to cookie customers about the program and why girls participate, make sure to: Tell them about all the things girls are learning by selling Girl Scout Cookies, like goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Share your girls’ sales goals and what the troop plans to do with its cookie proceeds in the coming year. 

*Sales TIP: Knowing how troops use cookie money is what customers really want to hear about when they consider supporting your sale and stocking up on cookies!

Remind them that 100 percent of cookie proceeds stay local. The money raised through the cookie sale helps your council power unique, amazing experiences for girls year-round. 

Buy 6 & enter to win 60! 

Are you ready to Boost your Booth Sales? Here’s a customer favorite.  

  • Hang your troop poster for the BUY 6 at your booth prominently. 
  • Any customer who purchases 6 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies at your booth can enter to win. 
  • Be sure to provide the customer the postcard with the instructions on how to enter. 
  • Make sure you added your troop # to the postcard. The troop who sells the 6 boxes to the winner will also win a cool prize. 
  • The customer then goes to the GSCM website or scans the QR code and completes the entry form.
  • The drawing will be held the week of December 20th.  

Reminder: The First Come First Serve (FCFS) booths are open in Smartcookies. Sign your Troop up for more Booth Sales today! Keep up the great work Girl Scouts and have FUN! 

Programs:

Mental Health Mondays

We have partnered with the Say It Brave Coalition to offer monthly mental health programs. Join us the 3rd Monday of each Month as we explore different topics concerning girls’ mental health. These programs are geared for those with lived experience and those looking to learn more or to become a better mental health advocate. Some topics include: Setting Boundaries with Social Media, Coping with Mental health Issues Over the Holidays, Healing through Writing’; Recovering from Bulimia – we aren’t meant to recover alone, Finding Healing in Animals, Lessons on Life and Mental Health from Animals’; and  Ditching Diet Culture and Loving Ourselves as We Are . These programs are a great opportunity for girls to connect with resources that they may need now or in the future. Girls may also be able to satisfy some badge requirements through these programs (e.g. Cadette Animal Helpers, Senior Women’s Health). For additional information about why Mental Health Mondays could be a great program for your girls read this.

Give a Gift of Girl Scout Cookies to our troops this Holiday Season

Girl Scouts have donated more than 37,000 boxes of cookies to military personnel and their families through the Gift of Caring campaign. We have reached military bases across the globe and impacted organizations such as Qatar Air Force Base, Wounded Warrior, Maryland National Guard, Walter Reed Hospital, and many more!
