That’s the way the cookie crumbles

Posted in Fun, Life, News tagged at 8:54 am by deadlikeme

A Michigan Girl Scout sold 17,328 boxes of cookies this year.

15-year old Jennifer Sharpe from Dearborn set up her shop on a street corner and sold cookies every day, with help from her mother and troop leader, Pam Sharpe.

Jennifer’s Troop 813 raised about $21,000 in cookie sales. And they plan to use the money for a 10-day trip to Europe.

    Yay for Girl Scouts of America! Teaching young women the importance of capitalism and selling obesity – I mean, cookies — to the masses.
