We wait all year round to munch on these delights: GIRL SCOUT COOKIES. Many of us just want to satisfy our cravings, but I would like to think that all of us simply want to support the girls! I was never a Girl Scout, but you can rest assured that after eating the seasonal pleasures every year that I am the loyalist girl to the scouts.
Never have I ever questioned where my money went. The sweet little faces of tomorrow's generation of torch-bearing women standing outside of my local Kroger just melt my heart. I recently found out where the cookie dollars go and figured I'd share.
To begin, these girls whom are craving leadership and other great skills sell cookies as a fundraiser for their very own troops. According to the Girlscout website, "With every purchase, approximately 70% of the proceeds stay in the local Girl Scout council and with troops to provide a portion of the resources needed to support Girl Scouting in that area, including the portion that goes directly to the group selling the cookies. The balance goes to the baker to pay for the cookies."
So to this end, I charge you to support the girls rather it be for your craving or the fact that they will be running your world one day! I pledge to eat Girl Scout cookies every season that they are available!
The things I write about are the love of my life and the life of my love!
