And for all those who signed up for the Service Unit World Thinking Day program: Thank you! I will see all 35 of you on Saturday, February 16, 2013, from 3PM to Maghrib (about 5:45PM) at PGMA to go over the program. We have SWAPS to make and displays to build. We will also go over what girls learned from the trip to the Malaysian Embassy. Uniforms are not required for this prep-session, but come ready to learn and work.

Cookies, Cookies, and More Cookies!

Asalaamu Alaiikum,

The parents of girls who took cookie orders can pick up their girl’s cookies from Cookie Mom Sis. Zakiya on Friday, February 15, 2013, from 4 – 9PM. The pick-up location was provided at the last troop meeting. Please email her at zakiya [dot] zaid [at] gmail [dot] com with questions or if you are unable to make the scheduled pick-up time.

Troop 3480’s girls are going hone their business skills by experiencing what it’s like to set up a Cookie Booth, manage customer orders in real-time and handle money. We are planning to have several Cookie Booths after Jummah at area masjids.

Check out this NY Times video and article in which an Arizona Girl Scout talks about how she sold more 5000 boxes of Girl Scout cookie last cookie season. Will your daughter be inspired to reach even higher goals and become the next cookie mogul?

…For the 1.5 million or so girls who do the selling, it [Girl Scout Cookies] also represents an opportunity. They handle more money than they might have ever seen in one place, build sales skills long before they have their first part-time jobs and earn prizes — commissions, in effect — that their parents might not be able to afford or wouldn’t buy for them.
