You can’t binge eat an entire sleeve of Thin Mints if you don’t buy them soon.

All of the proceeds stay in southeastern Wisconsin and a portion goes to troops that use the funds to plan adventures, experience travel and service projects.

Why support a Girl Scout? I would love to sit you down and orate a dozen reasons how the Girl Scouts made my childhood/tweenhood 100 percent better, but let’s stick to the hard facts from the experts.

“Girl Scouts learn five essential skills for leadership, success and life when they sell cookies. Girl Scouts learn how to set goals, make decisions, money management, people skills, and business ethics when they participate in the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world,” says Wendy Dahl, director of product programming.

Plus, the Girl Scouts are super inclusive – translation: they are cool with non-binary and trans girls and women. Read their statement on inclusivity below and then throw another box or five on your order.

Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast values diversity and is dedicated to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for gender expansive youth. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, national origin, physical or developmental disability, or gender identity. As a council, we are taking simple actions and dedicating ourselves to learning more, so we can continue to offer Girl Scouts as a place where youth and volunteers can be themselves.
