Every cookie has a mission

People say it’s just a cookie. What can a cookie do? A Girl Scout cookie can do a lot. It could send a girl to camp. It could help pay to refurbish a room at a homeless shelter. It could cheer up a soldier far from home.

A Girl Scout cookie could help buy school supplies for needy kids, or fly a troop of girls from Cincinnati, Harrison, or Middletown to Washington, D.C.

Some of these girls will come back to Washington as congresswomen or senators. One day our first female president may reminisce about the time she visited our capital and stood inside the Lincoln Memorial with her Girl Scout troop. The cookies you buy could be the ones that inspire a president.
