It’s almost FLAMINGO TIME!!!
Troops throughout the council are getting ready to participate in this year’s Fall Product Sale program which gives girls a great opportunity to raise funds for their upcoming Girl Scout adventures.
The Fall Product Sale, which runs October 6 – October 21, 2012, features delicious chocolates and nuts such as Dark Chocolate Mint Penguins, Chocolate Peanut Butter Bears, melt-in-your-mouth Dulce de Leche chocolates, and also the fun, new, collectible Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace mailbox tin which contains the ever popular Mint Treasures. The other part of the Fall Product Sale is the magazine portion where girls may sell any of a large variety of magazines either in person or online. With over 665+ magazine subscriptions, plus 50 digital subscriptions and 30 combo deals, where customers buy a regular subscription and get the digital version free, there is something for everyone in the magazine sale. Remember, with online magazine sales there is no need to collect money from troop families, and no need to pick up or deliver any products!
Troops earn 20% of the proceeds from the sales of both the magazines and the nuts and chocolates. Girls may earn fun recognition items like a hair tie lollipop, tap and wrap watch, or Fiona Flamingo, this year’s Fall Product Sale program mascot. Also, the Fall Product Sale program provides much needed resources to help support our council’s local offices and you, our volunteers.
Please remember, girls in a troop need to participate in BOTH the council-sponsored Fall Product Sale AND the Cookie Sale programs for a troop to be eligible to participate in any additional money earning activities such a bake sale, rummage sale, or other troop fundraiser.
In the Fall Product Sale program, troops may sell just chocolates and nuts, or just magazines, or both! There are no minimum or maximum sales amounts required in order to participate. Interested?
