New for Fall 2010! "Nut Promises"

This year your customers will have the ability to make nut promises, or place their orders online. After girls register and complete the program activity on the QSP/Nut web site, each Girl Scout can send emails to family and friends asking them to make nut promises. At the conclusion of the program, each girl simply prints out a detailed order report, which contains the total of the nut promises that were made to them. These totals can then be included on their nut order card. It’s that simple! Consider using this new and innovative way to help you reach your goals.
