Dear "Debbie". It's not a racket, it's a fundraiser! Speaking as the mom of a prior GS who used the cookie money to pay for many trips and events, the profit the GS's make is not huge(per box), but in total it adds up and does a LOT of girls a LOT of good. The inner city and limited resource troops get the most benefit from those cookie sales and would not be able to do so many fun and educational things they do without them. Thus, Stormy, open up your purse, and forget "buying" a box of cookies. Just make a $4.25 cent donation to a very good cause in support of many young woman and enjoy your tasty little reward of 16 very yummy cookies!!! In fact, you can make much larger donations to most organizations and not even get one cookie!
