Girl Scout Cookies are cookies sold by Girl Scouts in the United States to raise funds to support Girl Scout councils and individual squads. Scouts sell cakes to relatives, friends, neighbors, and other people in their town or city. Some boards offer the option for customers to sponsor cake boxes sent to US servicemen and women. The Girl Scout Organization requests that members adhere to strict safety guidelines, including the sale of cakes.
For example, Scouts, depending on their age, must be accompanied or supervised by an adult when selling Scout Cakes and must always use the friendship system. An then, Starting in 2015, Girl Scouts will also be able to sell cookies online via the Digital Cookies mobile app. Each Scout board decides which licensed cookie-making company to use for the sale of cakes on that board, thereby determining which varieties are available in the area covered by that board. Each Scout council sets its own price based on its needs and knowledge of the local market.

The Origin of Girl Scout
The first known sale of a cake to a Scouting unit was by the Mistletoe Squad in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in December 1917 at their local high school. In 1922, Girl Scout magazine The American Girl suggested selling cakes as a fundraiser and gave the regional director a simple sugar cookie recipe for the Girl Scouts of Chicago. In 1933, Girl Scouts in Philadelphia organized the first commercial sale, selling homemade cookies at the windows of the Philadelphia Gas and Electric Company.
From 1933 to 1935, organized cake sales increased, with troops in Philadelphia and New York City using the cake sales model to develop the marketing and sales skills of their local troops. In 1936, Girl Scouts of the USA began licensing commercial cake makers to manufacture cakes, to increase availability and reduce waiting times, starting with Keebler-Weyl Bakery. One hundred and twenty-five soldiers launched cake sales in the first year.

The Movement of Scout
The movement began in 1907 when Robert Baden-Powell, a lieutenant general of the British armed forces, and William Alexander Smith, founder of the Boy’s Brigade, held the first scouting camp (known as a jamboree) in the Brownsea Islands, England.
The idea for the movement emerged when Baden-Powell and his troops fought to defend the city of Mafeking, South Africa, from Boer attacks. At that time, his army was much less than the Boer army. To outsmart him, a group of young men are formed and trained to become volunteer soldiers. Their main task is to help the military defend the city. They get tasks that are light but important; for example delivering messages given by Baden-Powell to all members of the military in the city. They were able to complete the job so well that Baden-Powell’s troops could defend the city of Mafeking for several months. In recognition of their success, each member of the volunteer army was given a badge. The image of this badge was later used as the logo of the international Scout movement.
