Get Ready: Fall Sale starts soon

The Fall Sale will be here before you know it! It starts October 3, 2015 and this year, Girl Scouts have a lot to be excited about, including new fun/interactive tools to help girls to reach their goals. Girls can choose to sell in-person or online only and girls can choose to participate online, even if their troop is not.

When:

Starting September 21, 2015 all Troop Fall Sale Managers and Service Unit Fall Sale Managers registered for the 2016 year will receive an email with a link and instructions on how to access the website that will allow them to manage their sales campaigns for the 2015 Fall Product Sale.

Girls and parents will not be able to access the system to set up their personalized storefronts until October 3, 2015,  the same day in-person and online order taking begins. In-person order taking ends October 25, 2015. Girls will be able to sell online until November 13, 2015. Girls, who make any sales through that date, will earn rewards and proceeds.

Why should your girl/troop participate in the Fall Sale?

Girls can earn start-up money for their troop and rewards for themselves.

This year, participation in the Fall Sale is even easier for girls, parents/guardians, and volunteers! Troops and girls can participate by selling in-person and online. Or, if they choose, they can sell only online.

Most importantly, they start practicing the 5 Skills.

  1. Goal Setting –Girls learn to set and reach goals

  2. Decision Making –Girls learn to make their own choices

  3. People Skills –Girls learn how to communicate with others and work as a team

  4. Money Management –Girls learn to budget and handle money

  5. Business Ethics –Girls learn to be honest and fair

What’s new for the 2015 Fall Sale?

  1. Any girl can participate by selling online, even if her troop chooses not to.

  2. As part of their personal storefronts, girls can build their own avatars!


Product Sales Avatars

They can also participate in online learning activities and earn virtual rewards.

  1. Once your girl reaches $175 in online sales, she will get a personalized patch with her name and avatar on it.


Patch

As soon as the goal is reached an email is sent to the parents/guardians to order the patch. Once ordered, the patch will be mailed directly to your girl.

  1. Girls can also post pictures and videos to their online storefronts, send emails to prospective customers, and share their storefronts on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.

  2. Online customers can choose to have their merchandise shipped or delivered in-person.

For any questions regarding participating in the Fall Sale, troop leaders should contact their Service Unit Fall Sale Manager.
