The mobile phone app is easy and fun to use, providing information from nutrition to discovering your Cookie personality. The mobile app supports iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile devices. BlackBerry users and any cell phone that can access the internet can visit the mobile site by pointing their phones browser to: http://mobile.littlebrownie.com. This mobile site has many of the same functions as the app. The Cookie Locator is also available on the Girl Scouts Louisiana East website at www.gsle.org by clicking the Cookie Locator icon.
The mission of the annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale is to help girls do great things. Customers can support their efforts by purchasing additional cookies for donation to the troops’ Gift of Caring service projects. Gift of Caring cookies are donated to a non-profit or service organization selected by the troop, like fire and police departments, and military troops serving overseas.
The local council, Girl Scouts Louisiana East, is selling eight varieties of cookies for $3.50 a box with all proceeds remaining locally to support troops’ activities, special events and field trips, community service projects, and to help the council maintain camp properties, train and recruit volunteers, and provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Girl Scouts is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
