Troop 448 supports the troops

Girl Scout troop #448 of Texas is working to send a bit of home to troops ... Girl Scout Cookies!

The troop is working to collect funds to ship cookies to ship out to troops. They have a generous former Army officer who will pay all of the shipping costs. If you want to buy cookies to be shipped to the troops check out their website

I love the quote from their site
Troop 448 is very proud of our Men & Women who are serving to protect our Country. We hope the cookies we ship out to them will let them know that we think about them everyday.
I was a Girl Scout for years and know that selling cookies can teach girls many valuable skills (initiative, public speaking, salesmanship) but this troop is going a step beyond using it as a great opportunity to teach the girls patriotism.

I have sent a check for a few boxes of cookies and I hope that troop #448 is able to reach their goal of 200 boxes... perhaps with the blogospheres help they can surpass it!
