New York, NY (PRWEB) February 07, 2013
Celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Day Friday, Feb. 8 and help girls build a lifetime of skills and confidence.
National Girl Scout Cookie Day (Hashtag #onemorebox) is a day of fun and festivities to celebrate the largest girl-led business in the world. Buying cookies is more than just handing over money for a box. The girls interact with customers, run their own cookie business and work as a team. It's the reason the cookies aren't sold online. The best educational value is when cookies are purchased directly from a Girl Scout.
That's why Chatham Borough, N.J. resident Tessa Tinney, a Girl Scout alumna, is excited about this year's event. She is a founding partner of Monaco Lange (http://www.monacolange.com), the New York City-based branding agency behind this year's cookie campaign.
“It's pretty amazing that girls across the country are doing business right now. They're learning skills they'll use the rest of their lives. It's something to celebrate,” Tinney said. “Just by buying cookies, anyone can give a Girl Scout an opportunity to learn.”
Girl Scouts of the USA worked with Monaco Lange, a New York-based branding agency, to transform how people think about the Girl Scouts' cookie program. The robust, multi-channel national campaign that will continue through early 2013 was designed to elevate consumers' knowledge about how the Girl Scout Cookie Program helps girls attain five essential life skills: goal setting, people skills, decision making, money management and business ethics. After all, Girl Scouts is about way more than just cookies and camping.
The This is What A Girl Can Do campaign is running on radio, print, web, television public service announcements and social media platforms. Visit http://www.girlscoutcookies.org to see some of Monaco Lange's work – from the website to the PSA videos.
