Hawaii Girl Scouts to sell cookies online
HONOLULU – Girl Scouts of Hawaii (GSH) is participating in Digital Cookie, a first-of-its-kind web platform that lets girls sell cookies from their own protected, personalized websites this coming cookie season.
“With so much entrepreneurial activity and commerce online today, it is important that we teach our girls how to conduct business digitally. The Girl Scout troops and volunteers in Hawaii are very excited about this new online facet of the program,” said Shari Chang, GSH CEO.
Cookies will take approximately five to ten days to arrive directly to the customer’s home, and shipments to Hawaii will be assessed an additional $20 shipping and handling fee. GSH will sell online from Feb. 6 through March 15, 2015 at www.girlscouts.org/digitalcookies.
One-hundred percent of the net revenue earned from cookie sales stays with the local council and troops that sponsor the sale. Girls decide how to spend their troop cookie money and reinvest it back into their neighborhoods through community service projects and learning experiences.
According to GSH, Digital Cookie strengthens, expands and enhances the Girl Scout Cookie Program by combining the values and lessons of door-to-door and booth sales with 21st century business and entrepreneurial skills, continuing Girl Scouts’ long tradition of preparing today’s girls to be the female leaders of tomorrow.
