I don't know about you, but I love cookies. And Girl Scout cookies - watch out!
Just hand me a frozen Thin Mint - instant smile! Along with eating cookies, I appreciate the young ladies who are selling them too. I love their spirit, dedication and hard work. It's all admirable.
This year, I would like to thank Girl Scout Troop 44620 of River Forest. They are donating, and soon sending, cookies to sailors who are deployed on boats overseas and near Haiti. I can't wait to hear the sailors' response!
I have heard from some of you as well. And some way, somehow, I would like to connect people who want to donate to organizations who accept those donations. I'm hoping this blog can be a meeting point.
So here are a few organizations who will accept cookies:
Now, here's the hard part. I know there are dozens of troops in northern Illinois who have banded together to send cookies to the troops. I'm hoping to hear from their organizer soon. When I do, I'll be sure to pass along information!
In the meantime, let me throw another box of Thin Mints in the freezer!
