Links & Resources for Girls
QSP is GSOFCT’s fall Product Sale that allows customers to support Girl Scouting through the purchase of magazines, photo keepsakes, and delicious nuts and candies. This year’s QSP program will run from October 1 through November 1, 2014. By participating in QSP, girls will learn how to Dive In! Be Active! QSP is a quick, simple, and profitable way for Girl Scout troops to earn essential start-up money for their annual troop activities. Plus, girls have the opportunity to build their skills when they set goals and strive to achieve them through solid decision making, money management, people skills and good business ethics.
Share Program returns for 2014!
Last year, as part of the 2013 QSP Program, Girl Scouts of Connecticut was proud to introduce the Share Program and it's back for another year! Customers purchased more than 3,800 cans of Honey Roasted Peanuts to be donated to the Connecticut chapter of the American Red Cross. The Share Program is a great way for potential customers to support Girl Scouts if they do not wish to purchase products for themselves. Customers can purchase nuts for the Share Program on girls' order cards.
Magazine/Nut Online Program
Send emails to friends and family through the
Magazine/Nut Online Program.
Customers will receive an email allowing them to shop for magazines
and photo keepsake products
online and submit their payments directly to QSP. New this year, they
can also buy nuts and candy online. Through the Online Program,
customers can choose from even more nut and candy selections than on the
paper order card! Make sure to sign the Internet Safety Pledge and read the Family Instructions before you start using the program.
Ways for customers to show their support
Nuts and Candy
Order Cards: Customers can purchase 15 different products on the order cards. This year we are offering a new item, English Butter Toffee, along with a collectable holiday tin. Girls record customers’ orders and collect payment at the time the order is placed. Nuts and candies ordered on the order card will arrive in early December.
Customers who would like to make a donation to the Share Program can do so on the paper order card. Each donation of $5.00 will purchase one can of Honey Roasted Peanuts to be donated to the American Red Cross, Connecticut Chapter.
NEW! Online: Girls can now send emails to customers, and they can purchase nut and candy products online. Customers will pay for their products and shipping using a credit or debit card, and should expect to receive their nuts/candy in 5-7 days.
Catalog: For customers who prefer to peruse a catalog, family and friends can browse the paper catalog and order magazines using the hard copy order forms.
