Spread the Word Business Cards

Girls can distribute “Spread the Word” business cards to customers at booth sales or when selling door to door. Customers then can go online to order magazines, tumblers, candles, organic veggies, nuts, and candy. Be sure to include assigned Girl Online ID OR name/troop number on each “Spread the Word” card. Sales track back to girl automatically!

California’s Proposition 65

At Booth Sales, your Girl Scout may be asked about California’s Proposition 65 Warning, which now appears on all Fall Product Order Cards and our licensed vendor websites. If asked for more information, you or your Girl Scout can explain that in accordance with new California law, consumers will now see this warning in many restaurants, grocery stores, and even hardware stores. The purpose of the Proposition is to alert consumers so they can make informed decisions regarding the products they consume.

Like many products sold in grocery stores and other retail outlets, Girl Scout Fall Products contain the chemical acrylamide, which was discovered in 2002 and is formed by the reaction of naturally occurring sugars and a particular amino acid when food is cooked at higher temperatures, such as when baked, roasted or fried. With few exceptions, the chemicals in food that appear on the Proposition 65 list are not intentionally added to food. They are picked up from the soil or formed during cooking or other processes.

The following warning will appear for all Girl Scout nut or candy products on girls’ order cards and on the licensed vendor websites (for directly shipped and girl-delivered orders) sold in California: “Consuming this product can expose you to chemicals, including acrylamide, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.” Customers can find more information about the warning here.

To be in compliance with the law, we are providing Girl Scouts with Proposition 65 tent cards, which must be displayed at all booth sales.

You can find more information at www.gscookiesetc.org/fallproduct/faqs. Click here for a Prop 65 tent card to be displayed at all booth sales.

MyPatchCreation™

MyPatchCreation™ gives girls and troops a chance to customize their very own theme avatar! Each girl has the ability to choose from various background selections, accessories, and features to reflect her unique self! The more she does (sending emails, adding a photo of herself, etc.) the more fun accessories she unlocks for her avatar. 

Girls that earn $200 in online sales get to turn their avatar creation into their very own customized patch! The patch is shipped directly to girls 4-6 weeks from the end of the program (parent provides the shipping address).

Troop Product Coordinators will also be able to design, customize, and create their very own patch when the troop earns $500 in online sales (limit two adult patches per participating troop).
