Digital Cookie is an exciting new way for girls to:
- Learn 21st century business skills and expand their cookie business experience
- Market their cookie business and build a customer list
- Take virtual orders from their own personalized website
- Accept credit card payments
- Ship directly to friends and family who live far away
- Learn and earn a badge online
Through Digital Cookie, girls will email friends and family with a link to purchase and pay online for cookies, which will be shipped directly to the customer. (Shipping and handling fees will apply.) Customers can even make a donation to Operation: Sweet Appreciation through Digital Cookie.
How do I get started with Digital Cookie?
Emails have been sent to the parents of registered girls (those that GSWPA has in the membership database) inviting them to register their girl for Digital Cookie. Parents must agree to the terms and conditions to register their girl for Digital Cookie, and approve their girl's personalized page if under 13. All of this is done through email, so the parent must have an active email account in order for their girl to participate in Digital Cookie. If you or any parents in your troop did not receive an invitation to Digital Cookie, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once registered, the girl can set up her home page (requires parent approval if under 13) and customize it with her goal, photos and much more. Girls at all levels are also able to work on Digital Cookie badges directly from their home page!
Contests and Promotions
Best Video Contest and Bling Your Booth
Have your girls invite their friends to join Girl Scouts through the Add-a-Friend campaign that runs December through March. If her friend becomes a registered Girl Scout, they'll earn a cool patch, and if both girls sell 150 boxes of cookies, they'll each receive a special gift. Download a submission form.
How can you help each Girl Scout reach her goal?
Girls can continue to sell cookies before booth sales start. Here are a few easy ways for you to help girls to work toward their Girl Scout Cookie Goals:
- Send them a Cookie Goal Getter Card. Cookie managers received them via e-mail. Additional cards are available on VIPetraining.
- Participate in Gift of Caring or Operation: Sweet Appreciation. Both programs offer great ways for girls to make a difference -- one box of cookies at a time.
