Happy National Girl Scout Cookie Day!
GSUSA has declared today, February 8, National Girl Scout Cookie Day to increase awareness of what the Girl Scout Cookie Program does for girls and their communities and to highlight the amazing fact that this is a $790-million business, the largest girl-led business in the world!
Ensure that girls are "packaged" with the most important message when selling to their family, friends and customers -- that they are learning five essential life skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics!
One More Box to support a girl's goals.
She's counting on you!
This year, as part of National Girl Scout Cookie Day and in honor of their success in running the largest girl-led business enterprise in the world, girls will ask customers to step up for an opportunity to buy One More Box.
Customers want to help girls reach their goals!
This national social media campaign will make it easier for your girls to be successful. Customers will be ready and eager to help -- more than ever before. The time has never been better to encourage girls to reach for high goals.
Maybe girls will ask each customer to buy One More Box for a donation program. Maybe they will host one more booth sale. Maybe they will make one more phone call. Maybe they will try one more selling tip. Check out the fun and effective ideas on this blog. And help spread the word by pledging your support at www.facebook.com/Samoas-Cookies.
Look for GSUSA's one-day-only Facebook contest today and share on Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram why you'd recommend buying #onemorebox.
Girls can earn a patch!
Be a part of the first ever National Girl Scout Cookie Day and earn a patch! Troops participating in a booth sale or neighborhood door sales today (Friday, February 8) will earn the Cookie Day 2013 fun patch (pictured at left). FYI, enter these as independent booths in eBudde!
Win a year's supply of Girl Scout Cookies!
You -- and girls' customers -- can enter GSSWT's contest on Facebook to win a year's supply of Girl Scout cookies! Visit our Facebook page and look for the tab at the top with the delectable Samoa.

One winner will be chosen at random to receive a case (12 boxes) of cookies every month for 12 months.
