An Inspirational Girl Scout Cookie Season Begins

January 11, 2010 - Order taking for Girl Scout Cookies has begun! This cookie season Girl Scouts across Connecticut are inspiring change. Supported by the theme "A Better World...Inspired by U", more than 45,000 Connecticut Girl Scouts are discovering what matters most, connecting with people in their own community, and using the power of Girl Scout Cookies to take action for the betterment of their own neighborhoods and far beyond.

Highlighting this year's theme, Girl Scouts of Connecticut's cookievote.com website now has an inspiring new feature. In addition to voting for their favorite Girl Scout cookie, visitors to the site will also be able to submit inspirational notes thanking our many service men and women for their dedication. The notes will be included with Girl Scout Cookies being sent to service men and women through Girl Scouts of Connecticut's Cookies for Heroes program. Cookies for Heroes allows customers to purchase Girl Scout Cookies from their local Girl Scout and the Girl Scouts of Connecticut Council, along with community partners, will ship them to service men and women at home and overseas.

The annual Girl Scout Cookie Program is one of the most unique program activities for Girl Scouts. It's a hands-on leadership and financial literacy program that begins with imagination and inspiration. At the beginning of the program, girls ask themselves, "What can we do for fun and learning with our cookie proceeds?" and "What can we do with our cookie proceeds to help others?" Some Girl Scouts in Connecticut used their cookie proceeds from last year to cook dinner for a local homeless shelter, adopt military troops overseas, plant a community garden, and donate cookies to a local Veteran's hospital. Whatever goals the girls choose to pursue this year, they will also be building their leadership skills as they work as a team, budget and manage their money, and cultivate a strong sense of business ethic, all while providing customers with a tasty treat!     

Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Lemon Chalet, and a bite-size Dulce De Leche, will all be available this year, along with a new cookie treat, called Thank U Berry Munch. The new cookie features real, premium cranberries with sweet, creamy white fudge chips and is a special thank you to our many Girl Scout supporters. Girl Scout cookie fans who don't know a Girl Scout can log onto www.gsofct.org and click on the cookie to connect with Girl Scouts participating in the cookie program in their town.                                       

The proceeds from Girl Scouts of Connecticut's cookie program stay in Connecticut and directly benefit all of the Girl Scouts in Connecticut, including the Girl Scout Troop or Group from which the cookies were purchased. Girl Scout supporters who purchase a box of cookies are investing in their communities as well as tomorrow's leaders.
