Girl Guides have been selling cookies since 1927, when a leader in Regina baked cookies for her girls to sell; they were raising money to buy uniforms and camping equipment.
Girl Guide cookies are the official fundraiser of Girl Guides of Canada - we sell about 5.5 million boxes each year. All money raised through cookie sales support girls and women in Guiding by providing:
- Diverse and exciting programs and activities
- Chances for girls to discover new interests, learn valuable leadership skills, and make lasting friendships
- Assistance for girls and leaders to attend camps and events
- Training and support for leaders
Your unit will probably organize a group sale in the next few weeks. Otherwise, support your daughter while she approaches friends, family, and neighbours.
