I Heard It Through the Green Grapevine
This recurring feature will help dispel the myths and rumors we often hear through the Girl Scout "Green Grapevine." Most of the answers can be found in our Essentials documents in the Volunteer Vault.
This is my daughter's first year selling Girl Scout Cookies.Do you have any tips for parents so that can help her achieve her goal of selling 100 boxes?
A parent/guardian can help her/his girl by first giving permission for her to sell Girl Scout Cookies, which it sounds as if you've already done! You should also attend the cookie training for her troop/group.Knowing your daughter's goal is important. Selling cookies teaches girls financial literacy, and goal setting is a key component.

We want to show South Florida what a simple purchase of a box of cookies means to their community. We want them to know that through Girl Scouts, girl learn how to make the world a better place - one girl, one dollar and one cookie at a time.
We'd like to hear your cookie story. Please fill out the form found here, or send us an email at email@example.com or share your cookie proceeds plans on our Facebook page. We will be using the stories we collect in our marketing and public relations efforts throughout the year.
