Buy 5 Boxes for a chance to WIN Girl Scout Cookies for a Year!
Girls can sell more cookies all at once by sharing information about the Buy 5 Promotion with each of their customers and by inviting them to buy five packages for a chance to win five cases of Girl Scout Cookies! Four winning entries will be selected, one winner from each of our four regions. Each winner will receive 5 cases of their favorite Girl Scout Cookies – cookies for a year!
1. Customer purchases five packages of Girl Scout Cookies in a single transaction between February 14 and March 22. (All transactions qualify whether direct from a girl, at a booth sale, or through COCOdirect.)
2. Customer receives a code from the Girl Scout.
3. Customer enters their information by March 25 at http://www.gslakesandpines.org/pages/5for5Program/
4. Four winning entries selected week of March 30; winners notified by April 6, 2015
So, as a troop leader, you’re wondering, “What is this mysterious code that my girls will be sharing with their customers?” It’s simple. Please use the following formula to create unique codes for each customer. Use your troop number, followed by the girl’s initials, followed by the customer number. So, for example, if you are from Troop 45321, and Maggie Lemonade is the name of the girl who has three customers who each purchased five packages of Girl Scout Cookies, the codes she will distribute to them will be as follows: Customer #1 – 45321ML1, Customer #2 – 45321ML2, Customer #3 – 45321ML3. Have two girls with the same initials in your troop? No problem. Just add their middle initial or another letter to distinguish the two, for example MEL or MML.
A good way for your troop to prepare to implement this promotion would be to have business cards or slips of paper printed up with the website link, then a line for each girl to write her individual code – adding a 1, 2, 3, etc., at the end of her code for each customer that she has that purchases five packages. Girls can give a slip to each customer that qualifies.

Caitlin Cowan leader for troop 15046 in Minneapolis says, "We'll purchase a large number of Milkweed seed packets from SaveOurMonarchs.org Save and then set up tables at neighborhood festivals this spring to teach people about monarchs and the girls will hand out seed packets."
SaveOurMonarchs.org distributes Milkweed seed packets to help to save the Monarch Butterfly from extinction. Milkweed is the ONLY sustenance that the Monarch caterpillar can consume.
Troop 15046 is working to save monarachs as the project for their Bronze Award. They are trying to raise awarness and invite other Girl Scout troops to do the same. For more information or to join them in their campaign contact Caitlin Cowan at 612-385-2331or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
