Last week, we learned that some Girl Scout cookies were being discontinued, and NOW Minnesota scouts are protesting cookie sales! What ever happened to the good ole' drama-free Girl Scout days???
Some Minnesota Girl Scouts and Leaders are sitting out on the upcoming cookie sale as a way to protest the Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valley council's decision to sell 4 of its 12 camps.
Apparently the boycott is gaining increased support. Guess we'll see if these scouts and leaders are able to make any kind of difference…although if the problem is a lack of funds, wouldn't they want to sell MORE cookies, as opposed to staging a boycott?
Obvi selling a few extra cookies isn't going to bring about enough money to buy back a camp, but we're just not 100% convinced if this protest is an effective usage of everybody's time.
…Plus, we feel bad for Minnesota folks who will have a harder time acquiring Thin Mints this year! LOLz.
We may not be totally on board with this, but we hope everything works out for U, Minnesota Girl Scouts! Good luck!
