Participate in the Mags&Munchies and Memories Program. There are many different ways to help your Troop earn proceeds to do fun and fabulous things this Girl Scout year.
Just by filling out 8 cards in the Reach Out Address Booklet you can earn $2.00 for your Troop and a great patch for yourself.
You can do a little more and ask your friends and family to purchase nut/snack products, magazines or photo keepsakes either online or through the paper catalog in your sales envelope.
And don't forget to use your business cards, also in your sales envelope. Customers can go online and purchase when it's convenient for them. They pay with a credit card and have their purchases shipped right to them.
Whatever you decide to do, you'll be supporting your Troop and earning great rewards for yourself!
Ask friends and family to order magazines and/or buy nut or snacks from you to help your Troop earn proceeds to Troop activities and programs. Daisy and Brownie Troops can earn 10% of their sales. Junior, Cadette, Senior and Ambassador Troops can choose to earn 10% Proceeds plus Rewards, or 15% Proceeds with patches, but no Rewards.
To get started with your very own online store, register first, then send out emails to your friends and family. Or you can walk around your neighborhood, with an adult, and give out your business cards with your online ID number.
Nuts and Snacks - There are 16 catalog and 25 online selections available for ordering, including Gluten Free and Fat Free options. Each item is delicious, high quality and reasonably priced. .
To Remember This photo keepsake items. This new product line contains photo albums, greeting cards, posters, calendars and more. They make excellent gifts for anyone and everyone. Online Program Patch
Don't forget to ask for donations for Operation Stop Hunger and Project Thank You. A $5 donation to Operation Stop Hunger will help send a can of nuts/snacks to Island Harvest and a $5 donation to Project Thank You will provide a magazine subscription to our local National Guard or military personnel.
If your friends and family aren’t interested in purchasing Mags&Munchies for themselves; ask them if they would be interested in donating to Operation Stop Hunger or Project Thank You!
Operation Stop Hunger - A $5.00 donation to Operation Stop Hunger sends a nut/snack item to Island Harvest for a family in need.
Project Thank You - A $5.00 donation to Project Thank You provides local military/veterans with a magazine voucher that allows them to select a publication of their choice.
This year there are many different ways for Girl Scouts to earn rewards for selling Magazines, photo keepsakes, nuts/snacks and a combination of all three. Rewards are cumulative and you will receive all rewards up to the amount you have sold.

Goal Setting - Girls learn how to set goals and meet deadlines.
Decision Making - Girl Scouting teaches girls how to use research to develop a plan and work as a team.
Money Management - Girls learn to make change, plan and budget their funds.
People Skills - Girls gain confidence learning how to deal with different types of people.
Business Ethics - Girl Scouting teaches girls to be honest, trustworthy and reliable.
Girls who have learned these skills will be poised for success in their personal and professional life. Employers look for candidates who have abilities in these areas.
The Be a Reader Program is designed to engage girls in learning and earning activities which focus on goal setting, money management and entrepreneurship that tie in with the Mags&Munchies theme.
The Be A Reader Program is online this year at www.whatcanagirldo.com. In addition to the QSP Be a Reader you'll also find the Ashdon Farms Nut Factory activities. Both sites offer fun, age appropriate, educational games and other interactive activities for Girl Scouts at all levels.
The Be A Reader patch can be picked up at the Council office once girls have done the activities.
