Bring on the Thin Mints!

In case you haven't heard, the Girl Scouts are going digital.  That means you can now satisfy your craving for Thin Mints, or if you're weird, Samoas, without even venturing outside.  Sounds like a recipe for diet disaster. 

But from their standpoint it was an interesting dilemma.  The goal for cookie sales (other than raising $800 million yearly) is to teach girls how to sell directly to others, and how to handle money and follow-up deliveries.  (Forbes, 2014)

Hmm.  That makes sense to me.  And given the fact that so many kids today are struggling with face to face contact in their social media driven worlds, a goal worth hanging on to.  And I for one would be willing to forgo my Thin Mints to help a girl gain some self-confidence.  How about you?
