Girl Scout Cookies For The Troops!

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:

Operation Support Our Troops - Illinois

Citizen Sam

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!
