I'm shameless :-)

A mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do. :-)
Mailia is now a Brownie Scout, and her troop is selling nuts, candy and magazine subscriptions to raise money for their activities and earn badges in the process.
We went door-to-door thru the neighborhood this past weekend, and then combined with extended- family sales, she has earned over $150! Pretty darn good for her first attempt at selling anything.
I don't want to try to sell any of the nuts and candy here, because the orders would come to us and we would then be responsible for shipping. But thought that I could at least throw the magazine info out there, in case anyone is interested. Especially those who might want to re-new a current subscription.
So here's the info.............they prefer that orders and/or re-orders are place online. Apparently the kids (their troop) receive more profit when ordered online.

The organization# is 425610101
Her ID#is HAU1

I don't want anyone to feel pressured or obligated to buy anything! Just thought I'd toss it out there in case someone may be about to re-new one of their subscriptions anyway. And I wouldn't know who did or who didn't. They (Reader's Digest) don't share that information. We would just get "credit" for a sale.

So, there you go! The troop is planning an over-night camp-out at the Brevard Zoo
near Melbourne, FL. after the first of the year. Just thought you might want to know what they're selling for.
Thanks for looking!

I'll post a picture of her in her Brownie vest as soon as it arrives.

Shirley,

You know, we (at my work) were just talking about what we were when we were little kids! (ahem, showing my age now) I was a bluebird (in campfire girls), then a brownie, then a girl scout.

Amazing isn't it? They are still around for our children!
