Colorado Springs Girl Scout helps pay it forward


Submitted by Irelynn Sarchett

This weekend, I took Irelynn downtown with her wagon to sell cookies. A man told her he didn’t want cookies but gave her $20 and told her to find 5 people that probably couldn’t afford to buy cookies. She gave the cookies to 4 homeless men that were so thankful to receive them. One guy told her he’s always wanted to try them. The last box was given to a man with a toddler at the bus station that just didn’t have any money for cookies. It made Irelynn feel so good to do something so simple to make someone smile. It was a very humbling experience for the both of us. A big high five to the man that gave her the $20.
