Give the Gift of Cookies!
For many years, Girl Scouts across the country have used Girl Scout Cookies to show their appreciation for men and women in uniform or to support those in need through the Gift of Caring program. For various reasons, some customers do not want to buy cookies for themselves. With Gift of Caring, they have a chance to give to others while supporting Girl Scouting at the same time. Instead of keeping the Girl Scout Cookies for themselves to enjoy, customers can choose the Gift of Caring charity each Girl Scout has designated, and the cookies will then be presented to that particular organization.
For the 2013 Cookie Season, GSMISTS is proud to announce that Michigan Blood will be the official council-sponsored charity for the Gift of Caring program. Although girls are encouraged to designate their Gift of Caring cookies to the council-sponsored charity, they can select any organization of their choice.
The Girl Scout Cookies donated to Michigan Blood will be used to provide blood donors with an essential and yummy snack after each blood donation appointment. Last year, our Girl Scouts helped donate over 3,000 boxes to Michigan Blood!
