Girl Scouts and their enthusiastic supporters have helped ensure the success of the iconic annual cookie sale—and they’ve had fun, developed valuable life skills and made their communities a better place every step of the way.

From the very beginning the Girl Scout Cookie Program—and Girl Scout Cookies—has been the engine that powers Girl Scouts. The sale of Girl Scout Cookies has made an indelible impact on the millions of Girl Scout alumnae who have sold them. In fact, 57 percent of Girl Scout alumnae in business say the program was key in the development of their skills today. From buying a bulletproof vest for a female police officer to creating care packages for patients at a local children’s cancer center, girls nationwide use their cookie revenue to fund projects that benefit their communities in amazing ways.

Some recent examples include the launch in 2001 of programs to deliver Girl Scout Cookies (and a little bit of home) to United States military personnel around the globe. And when disaster strikes, Girl Scouts are there, using their cookie earnings to send care packages to victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, or to victims of Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
