Online Marketing Guidelines
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a girl-led program, and a girl
should always lead online marketing and sales efforts under the
supervision of an adult. Girls should never share their last names,
addresses, or personal information when marketing their products
online. For safety and equity amongst girls, personal Digital Cookie
links should never be posted to online resale sites (eBay, Facebook
Marketplace, Craigslist, etc.) or public platforms; however, sharing
troop links or booth promotions is permitted. Neither GSWO nor other
caregivers/volunteers have the authority to reprimand or remove posts
shared on personal social pages.

By donating cookies, cookie customers can double their giving
efforts by supporting Girl Scouts and donating to others in need
simultaneously. Girls learn about philanthropy and the power of giving
back to their local communities. So, that's a win-win-win. Even better!
Girl Scouts of Western Ohio has two cookie donation programs
available for troops: Council Gift of Caring (the council handles the
physical inventory and delivery of the cookie packages) and Troop Gift
of Caring (the troop manages the inventory and delivery of these donations).

adding a note to any printed pieces that say, "scan this with
