OT: Girl Scout Cookies & U.S. military

Posted on February 6, 2011

Want to do something that helps TWO great organizations at the same time AND makes you feel good?

I just learned about the Girl Scouts’ Program called “The Gift of Caring”, from a friend’s daughter, an 11 year-old Girl Scout.

Here’s how it works: Instead of buying Girl Scout cookies for yourself, you can request that your purchase be used to send cookies to military personnel serving overseas. Imagine an American soldier in Afghanistan opening up a care package, and getting a little taste of the U.S.A., courtesy of you and the Girl Scouts.

I thought this was a wonderful idea – and so I’ve donated in this way. I hope that some of you will do the same. If you would like contact information for the Girl Scout troop I supported, please contact us at the office.

Besides, it keeps me from eating those yummy cookies!!
