A little girl selling Girl Scout cookies was once a symbol of an organization trusted by parents. That became tarnished as the focus changed and now provides an environment that is said to be in conflict with the morality it once promoted.

I'm sure it will be worth the trouble.
Yes but the most important question is do they sell girl scout cookies? That is what is the missing information here. The reason that most find it difficult to stop supporting the Girl Scouts is because of the cookies. Does this organization provide the same cookies as the girl scouts? If they do then I believe you will receive support from people. If not, then it is going to be very difficult to have people boycott the organization.
Martha a question.........
Are most/all of the articles you post here ones that
you have written and are located on Examiner.com?
Oh, yes. Exclusively. It's a business.
You are expected to provide her with hits in order to read her brilliant writing.
That is what Free Republic is here for after all.
There needs to be a secular but with traditional values organization to compete with the abortion loving Girl Scouts.
It is hard to compete with the cookies. Last year I was called over by the sweetest two little girls and their darling grandpa to check out their table of cookies. I bought. WITH TEARS IN MY EYES because my little girl’s grandpa has alzheimers and won’t ever be able to help her sell cookies.
But I bought. EVEN KNOWING MY $ GOES TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD. The little sweeties selling the goods have no clue, and I bet that sweet grey haired man didn’t either.
I meant to ping you to this thread to see if you had seen this location and if so what
it was looking like now. It will be a sight to see once complete I think.
Wrong freeway for me, I’m up 59 where they are threatening to build a theme park.
Don’t make it up that way much but it looks like I may be in that area mid-next-week.
I’ll cast an eye and a camera on it, if I remember.
Thanks, I knew you weren’t on 45 but thought you may had passed that way at some point.
2,000 or so tranfers out of VA will make an impact on housing I’d guess. That area
was growing so fast it’s almost unbeleivable.
Apparently some folks clearly think that's the case.
Laina doesn't agree.
That is so contentious that.. why, it makes my butt hurt!
LOL, I think there’s a form for that!
American Heritage Girls sells candles from Abby’s Candles as one of its fundraisers, and Abby’s Candles offers cookie mixes on their website.
Sees’ Candies also works with AHG. However, those fundraisers are on a troop by troop basis.
If you like the cookies, you can get generic “Samoas” from the dollar store now that taste the same as Girl Scout cookies, without subsidizing a group that brings Planned Parenthood to middle school gatherings and promotes radical feminism as empowering girls.
Here is a whole list of Girl Scout alternatives.
Girl Scout Alternatives
I’m partial to AHG, but I’m also assistant leader of my daughter’s American Heritage Girls troop.
See’s Candies are the bestl.......but I’ve only found them out West.......Colorado, California
Occasionally, our local mall gets them in for Christmas
I would rather have See ‘s instead of Girl Scout cookies
The godless left has infiltrated everything that was once good. There is no stopping them now.
