Girl Guides across Canada sell cookies twice a year as our main source of income. Chocolate Mint Cookies are sold in the Fall and Chocolate and Vanilla Sandwich Cookies are sold in the Spring. Cookies are sold for $5 per box and 46% of the money raised is kept close to the girl at District or Unit levels. The chart below shows a breakdown of the money raised by cookies. Units and Districts use their portion of the funds raised to pay for camps, crafts and other activities.
