GIVEAWAY: Celebrate National Girl Scouts Cookie Day on Friday, February 8th!

20130122-154604.jpgEvery year, millions of Americans support the nation’s largest girl-led business with a box of their favorite Girl Scouts Cookies. Many of these American’s don’t even know much more than Girl Scouts Cookies are a thing made to covet and only come once a year. I know I cheer every year when its Girl Scouts Cookies time and order up to 15 boxes a year from anyone and everyone who is selling. I’ve been known to freeze them, making them last longer. We’re supporting a $790 million cookie program that helps fundraising goals for local camps and troop outings.

Despite being on bed rest, I’m thrilled to be supporting (by eating) such a wonderful organization that teaches girls goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—skills essential to leadership, to success, and to life.

February 8th will commemorate girl leadership of one of the nation’s most prized youth-based programs that has provided these leadership skills to more than 59 million women nationwide. I’m noshing on a box of my favorite, thin mints in celebration right now!

On February 8th, the Girl Scouts are partnering with Sweetery NYC Food Truck, Zagat’s #1 rated New York City food truck and mobile bakery, to host “pop-up” Girl Scouts Cookies shops throughout New York City and you’re invited to join in for a sweet treat, meet CEO Anna Maria Chavez, among other activities.
