March 12, 1912 is the day that the Girl Scouts were born. Founded in Savannah, Georgia by Juliette Gordon Low, the organization was created for girls to have a fun place where they could belong.
The program motivates each girl to develop her gifts and talents to their fullest potential. They are inspired to live lives of high moral character, loyalty, friendship, generosity, compassion, courage and faith.
What is your favorite flavor? I love the Lemonades and the Shortbreads. But guess what the most popular Girls Scout Cookie is by far? Thin Mints! Thin Mints accounts for 25% of total sales.
Movie Star Alert: Guess who just spontaneously decided to help the Girl Scouts in San Fransisco sell cookies, while he was buying some boxes of his own? Tom Hanks!

Make the cookies yourself? I dunno. Maybe.
My granddaughter is a Girl Scout. My daughter, her mom, is a troop leader. To say that I am proud of them is an understatement. In my opinion, they are great examples of what Girl Scouts should be. Through them, I have gained a greater appreciation for the Girl Scout organization as I get to see what they do, up close and personal.
Now, take a look around. If there is a girl scout nearby, be sure to buy some cookies from her and help keep an American tradition going strong. If not, you can find out how to buy them here: Find Girl Scout Cookies
