Our CEO, Liz Brent, received an email from a Girl Scout mom whose husband instructs an Outward Bound Course for Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. She convinced her husband to take 9 boxes of cookies left over from her troop's booth sale on his next course. The course participants were in the Mobile Delta, slogging though the swamp in the cold and unceasing rain, and here's the message he sent to his wife:
"Girl Scouts save the day! Forgot to tell you. We were on the verge of hypothermia when we got out of the swamp. I got the kitchen up. Boiled water for tea and...served some cookies. Great for morale."
You have to LOVE the idea of these big, strong veterans fortifying themselves with tea and Girl Scout cookies!
It's amazing where our cookies go to brighten up the day! Leave a comment telling us what you do with your end-of-sale Girl Scout cookies!
Are you one of the troops who is having a booth sale after March 8? Then your troop will need a few extra days to calculate incentives and such. The new deadline is March 18 for incentives for all troops. But if you are done selling, feel free to get your incentives in to ebudde as soon as possible!
