1. We are all inclusive.

Girl Scout membership does not discriminate on any basics, including race, ethnicity or gender identity!

2. Thin Mints!

4. Girl Scout Cookies are loved by important guys, like Tom Hanks!

5. Girl Scouts really will rule the world someday and dads will help make it happen! Take as an example the Flying Monkeys, a group of Girl Scouts from Ames, Iowa, who developed a prosthetic hand device to help a 3-year-old toddler without finger to write.
