How it Works

There are two ways that girls can offer MagNut products to friends and family:

1. Online via the M2 platform
The mobile-friendly platform makes it fun and easy for girls and troops to participate! Check out these three steps to selling online to get started!

  • Girls can create a unique avatar that looks just like them and even earn their own avatar patch!
  • Girls build their personalized storefront in M2 and send emails to friends and family to purchase nuts/candy and magazines online. Magazines are digital orders, and nuts and candies can be ordered online and shipped directly to customers. Customers can also order nuts and candies online and request in-person delivery from your Girl Scout.
  • Girls can record a video message to inspire customers to support their goals. She could share her plans for proceeds and ideas for great uses for MagNut products. (Pro tip: Nuts and candies are perfect holiday gifts for teachers, school bus drivers, mail carriers, and more!)
  • Girls can print business cards with their unique, online storefront link to promote their MagNut business.
  • Customers can also support Operation: Sweet Appreciation and send a treat to the military.

2. In Person

  • Girls can collect in-person orders from friends, family, and more by using their order cards. 
  • Additional printer-friendly order cards are available to share with friends and family. Request a printable order card from your troop leader or troop MagNut manager that features 16 yummy treats, including the collectible tins that make great holiday gifts!
  • If local guidelines allow, print and leave door hangers and business cards around the neighborhood to remind everyone that it's time to order.
  • Help your Girl Scout print out her personalized business cards to leave for those customers who want to browse the magazine selections online or want to order other online-only items that are not available on the order card.

Hawaiian Monk Seal Fun Facts

Here are some interesting fun facts about Hawaiian monk seals:

  •  This species is one of the most endangered marine mammals in the world.
  • Hawaiians call the seal `Ilio holo I ka uaua, which means, “dog that runs in rough water.”
  • Hawaiian monk seals molt once a year, shedding the top layer of their skin and fur.
  • Pups are born black, but as they age they morph into shades of gray and brown. 
  • The average lifespan of a Hawaiian monk seal is 25 to 30 years. Adult males grow to about seven feet long and weigh between 300 and 400 pounds. Meanwhile, females can grow to eight feet long and can weigh between 400 to 600 pounds.
  • .Hawaiian monk seals feed primarily in deep water coral beds on fish, lobster, octopus, and squid.
  • Most seals are at home in frigid waters, but the Hawaiian monk seal is a rare tropical exception. Hawaiian monk seals live in the remote Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.
