While we get media attention from many stations, I just had to post this because I'm so proud! My daughter had to come with me to two morning shows, and wore her uniform because she hoped she could sit on the set (I told her only the older girls were being interviewed). Well, at Channel 8, they asked if she could be part of it and weren't supposed to give her a microphone, but did anyway! When asked on camera what she liked about selling Girl Scout Cookies, I held my breath. You never know what the young ones will say. "I like meeting new people," she said. What an awesome answer! I was so proud!

Hannah's TV debut had the news anchors eating out of her hand (well, at least figuratively). They quickly dived into the cookies we brought along to the set! I have to say, this was a GREAT interview. The value of leadership and the learning involved in the Cookie Sale was highlighted, and that made us all quite happy!

OK ... so the cheesy rhyme is cheesy. But our segment with Channel 8 wasn't cheesy. It was cookie-riffic! Our own Cookie Diva took the stage with our PR Star Olivia for our first TV appearance of the season. Way to go, girls!

Three of our "pilot" PR Stars girls had their first taste of radio today at K95.5 FM with two gracious hosts, Karla Cantrell and Matt Bradley. Between laughter, giggles, and trying on the blinking nose we managed to say that these cookies help girls go to camp and that we have three new cookies this year - Lemon Chalet Cremes, Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, and new All Abouts! Personally, I didn't realize until I was a mother of a Girl Scout that these cookies don't just "in general" help girls go to camp ... but each girl earns cookie credit with each box sold. And that's in addition to the all the other ways the cookie "crumbles" to help the troop, council, scholarships, etc.!

My name is Hayley and I love being a Girl Scout. July, 2007, I went to Tallchief camp and had a fantastic time. When I got home, I realized there was a girl out there who wanted to go to camp but could not afford to go to camp.
For the rest of the year I felt bad for that girl and others who could not afford to join Girl Scouts or go to camp. As it got closer to my birthday, my friends asked what I wanted for my birthday. It was very hard to answer because I have so much and my family is so blessed. I remembered that girl that could not afford to go to camp, so I asked my friends and family to give money to Girl Scouts instead of presents to me. It feels good to help that girl who could not afford to go to camp. I learned the best present is the feeling of giving.
Why did I do it? Because I’m a Girl Scout.
