Favorite Thing: Girl Scout Thin Mints (sort of)

Last week I was walking out of our local Sprouts grocery store and I saw the girl scouts selling cookies and I felt conflicted.

I don’t feel right giving the cookies to my family. The other option is buying cookies to donate to our troops, I would not feel right about that either. Trans fats, GMO wheat flour, and sugar won’t help improve PTSD.

Here are two solutions I found that I wanted to share with you.

 

Solution #1 (If you want to support the girls) – Donate

I love the organization, my daughter was active when she was little. I could not agree more with their saying:

Invest in girls. Change the world. girl-scouts

We believe that when girls succeed, so does society.
