Cookies: March 2010 Archives

Please check out the terrific story about the new Girl Scout Cookie Campaign in this week's issue of The NonProfit Times


GSUSA Marketing and Communications team members were interviewed, as were the external creative team of Chris Moore and Andre Basso, who created the "What a Cookie Can Do" video.


We love the new video, and we're excited everyone else does, too!

Elizabeth Farry, community relations manager for the Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast, talks about using Girl Scout Cookies as ingredients in other recipes. Farry has tried many of the recipes on the Girl Scouts' Web site, including fried Caramel Delights, Thin Mint brownies and Do-Si-Dos peanut Thai chicken.

Girl Scout Cookies have been something of an institution in this country for more than 80 years, and the ads have been updated over time. But in 2010, the changes are going further. This season, girls are taking their pitches for the $700 million a year business online.


Well, the weather could have been better for the Thin Mint Sprint ... OK, it could have been a LOT better!  Although it was cold and rainy, we still had a great turnout and a great time.  We were so thankful for all the people who braved the chilly weather to support Girl Scouts and a healthy lifestyle.


We had over 300 runners registered for the 5K and more than 100 registered for the fun run. The kids had a great time at all the activities at the Healthy Family Fun Fair following the Sprint. 


There are commemorative 2010 Thin Mint Sprint T-shirts for sale in the Mobile council shop.  There aren't many left and are selling for $5 per shirt -- what a steal!


Check out our photo album and video from the event.
