In the last month, my daughter has participated in a 9-11 ceremony honoring our country’s brave heroes, learned about endangered animals while camping at a wild animal park, and got hands on with car maintenance at our local Girls in the Garage event. I too wore the green uniform, proudly displaying my patches and selling Thin Mints to my mom’s friends as a young girl. Girl Scouts is a positive organization that helps girls build character and life skills. I am so proud to say that I was a part of this incredible organization. And while the Girl Scouts have grown and advanced since I was a member, their leadership-driven mission has remained the same.
Consideration provided by Girl Scouts.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Started over 100 years ago by Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, the Girl Scouts now encompasses 2.6 million girls and leaders. Through field trips, skill-building sports clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls discover fun and friendship while achieving important life skills. Girls who participate in the Girl Scouts develop a strong sense of self, seek challenges and learn from setbacks, display positive values, form and maintain healthy relationships, and identify and solve problems in the community. In the 3 years my daughter has been a girl scout, I have seen her grow and develop in ways I never imagined. She absolutely loves being involved and has already developed skills of responsibility, courage, and initiative during her time with her troop.
Girl Scouts Fall Product Program
Even if your familiarity with the Girl Scouts is vague, you certainly know about Girl Scout Cookie Season. During the Fall, their lesser known Fall Product Program is girl-led and helps develop essential life skills such as goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
Through November 4, 2018, girls will sell nuts, chocolate, magazines, and more door-to-door and online in your community. Beginning October 26th, you will find booth sales (similar to those found during Girl Scout Cookie Season) at storefront locations across the country. The Fall Product Program is a wonderful way to shop for holiday gifts for friends and family while supporting your local troop. There is also an option to purchase items for U.S. military troops and local food items through the tax-deductible Care to Share option. The funds raised support troop activities, community service and Take Action projects, and field trips.
Some of the products available include healthier treats like Whole Cashews, Cranberry Nut Mix, and Honey Roasted Peanuts and sweet treats like English Butter Toffee, Peanut Butter Bears, and Dark Chocolate Mint Penguins. Non-food items include magazines, tumblers, and scented candles, including the collectable Girl Scout candle.
As a former Girl Scout and the mom to a daughter who is currently a Brownie, I would love for you to support your local Girl Scout Troop this Fall season. Both the Fall Product Program and the Girl Scout Cookie Program help girls learn important entrepreneurial skills such as goal-setting, money management, and public speaking. As a troop, the girls learn to collaborate, compromise, and empower themselves by setting goals and taking action to attain those goals.
