Yep! You heard it here first BBYO! Girl Scouts is releasing a brand new cookie this year, the Raspberry Rally™! Plus, they are continuing to have all their cookies certified Kosher Ⓤ,  Including the new Raspberry Rally™!

Girl Scouts is an organization that “builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place” - Girl Scouts. One of the many ways this is achieved is through the Girl Scouts Cookie program. These are those fantastic cookies you may see around the neighborhood once a year! The season starts now! To excite the Girl Scouts for the season, Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta has a Cookie Rally Program every year. There were two sessions and I had the opportunity to cover the one on the 10th, which was geared towards grades K-5. 

The rally consisted of 6 stations: 

  1. Bling Your Booth

At Bling Your Booth Girl Scouts got to make booth pendant flags! These were super cute and had pictures of the different Girl Scout cookies!

  1. Cookie Knowledge 

Cookie Knowledge was so fun! Scouts got to make Girl Scout cookie charms and turn them into bracelets. We truly got to see the scouts’ creativity spark at this station. 

  1. Door to Door

Door to Door was very innovative! Little houses were set up so scouts could have a mock cookie-selling experience. 

  1. Girlboss

GIRLBOSS yes! Girlboss was a fun station in which scouts got to draw on little people cut-outs to write their names and strength. Girl Scout empowerment! 

  1. Goal Setting

In Goal Setting scouts got to make colored sand jars and a wave goal tracker. I love my tracker and am using it this cookie season. I even saw myself on a box! For context, I have been in two GSUSA photo shoots. Here is a photo! 

  1. Money Matters

Money matters was a highlight! There was a fishing rod in which scouts got to “fish” questions out of bags. These questions helped scouts learn how much money cookies cost and to give back exact change. Plus, I ran into myself on another box! 

Overall, Girl Scouts is an amazing organization! Similar to our stand-up and J-Serve causes, Girl Scouts often do community service to win high awards such as the Gold award. Plus, their cookies are even kosher! Keep an eye out for Girl Scouts in your neighborhood. If you live in the Atlanta area feel free to use my link! If not, ask the Girl Scouts in your area for their links! 

Go, Girl Scouts!
