Every time I’ve shared Kendall’s story with audiences, it inspires people to give boxes of cookies away to bring themselves and others joy.  Seeing the impact of this idea, I wanted to invite more people to participate and make even more of a difference with this simple act of kindness. 

In this photo I bought 60 boxes of cookies to give away. I gave these awesome girls 4 boxes each to give away to random people to brighten their day and experience the joy of giving! I gave the rest away myself.

How the Cookie Giveaway Challenge Works

Step 1 : Sign-Up for the Challenge

Simply enter your name and email address so that we can send you reminders, updates, and details to make this experience fun and easy for you. This way we can stay in touch and track the number of boxes you give away and let you share your experience with other Cookie Givers!

 *We promise not send you any spam or share your contact information with others.

Step 2 : Buy Cookies

There are a number of ways you can buy boxes of Girl Scout Cookies:

1. In-person: This is by far the most rewarding experience! You can locate a cookie booth near you or download the Girl Scout Cookie App by clicking the button below:

2. Online: If there is not a booth near you or you are travelling, you can place an order online with a Girl Scout.  

If you know a Girl Scout, tell her you’re interested in buying cookies from her online, and she’ll take it from there!

If you don’t know a Girl Scout, be sure to register to receive a list of girls taking online orders . Will also email you specific instructions on how to place online orders for this Cookie Giveaway Challenge.

Step 3 : Give Cookies

Once you have purchased the cookies, you have a couple of options how you give them:

1. Girl Scout Gives Cookies: Ask the Girl Scout whom you bought the cookies from to personally give your boxes of cookies to a friend or someone as a surprise gift.  Be sure NOT to say you are “donating” them. Request that your cookies are personally “given to someone as a gift.”

2. Give Cookies Yourself: If you would like to surprise your friends, family, co-workers, or strangers with a box of cookies, keep some for yourself to gift.

Step 4 : Report Cookies

In order for us to track the number of boxes given, we need your help in reporting how many you have bought.  This helps us know how close we are to the goal of bringing joy to at least 1,000 lives with 1,000 boxes of cookies.  You can report your number of boxes below. Once you are registered for the challenge, we will send you reminders and a link to report the number of boxes you have given.

Step 5 : Challenge Friends

In order for us to achieve this goal of impacting at least 1,000 lives, we need you to invite, share, and challenge others to participate. Ways you can do this are:

1. Share your experience on social media (Facebook, Instagram, etc…) with your friends using the hashtag #GiveCookies

2. Challenge 3 friends to the Cookie Giveaway Challenge.  Share something like this “I am doing the Cookie Giveaway Challenge and gave # boxes of cookies to make someone’s day. I am challenging you to give away at least 3 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to help bring joy to 1,000 lives this month.

3 Reasons Why We Are Doing This

Spreading Much Needed Joy in America

In a time when our country is so divided and bombarded with negativity and stress, we have an opportunity to spread joy and kindness in a very simple, sweet, and impactful way.

Imagine how our outlook shifts immediately when someone surprises us with a gift of kindness. Each box of cookies given brings joy to you, the Girl Scout and the recipient.  It’s like a 3-in-1 opportunity to be a Joy Maker!

With this gift of kindness, we remind ourselves and others of the good people in America.  We renew our belief in the human spirit and deepen relationships with one another. 

 

Supporting a Great Cause

When you make a Girl Scout Cookie purchase, you’re helping the next generation of girl entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful—teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook.

Inspiring a Child with the Gift of Giving

One of the most powerful life lessons we can share with others is the gift of giving.  A kind and generous mindset opens doors to unexpected opportunities for growth, connection and success.

We are shaping and influencing citizens of the next generation.  Let’s empower them with experiences that enrich their lives while creating a kinder and more joyful world.

Girl Scout Cookies are only available for 6 weeks once a year.  

There is a small window for this to happen and for us to spread the joy.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the premier girl-led entrepreneurship program in the world, but it is just one part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Girl Scouts participate in varied activities throughout the year and work on many projects. The cookie program is just one of those activities. And because only registered Girl Scouts may sell Girl Scout Cookies, their market availability is normally limited to the six- to eight-week period when girls are engaged in the program through their local council. 

No, we do not accept any money. We’ve made this process easy so that you can personally experience the joy and ease of giving.  Also, all money is handled by the Girl Scouts organization.

As many times as you want! Each time you do it will bring you and other joy!

Depending on how many boxes you’d like to buy and the experience you want to give, we recommend 3-5 boxes per girl as a good start.  Some people have bought entire cases (12 boxes each).  Each box is generally $5-$6.

The more you buy and give, the more impact you can make.

No, we just want to do some good and inspire joy through this special project.  We do not receive any compensation, endorsements, or financial gain from this.

“I’d like you to give my boxes of cookies to a friend or someone as a surprise gift.”

Don’t say that you are making a “donation”. Instead request that your cookies are personally “given to someone as a gift.”
