My family is sitting here this evening a little overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity we experienced today. Thanks for all the support and words of encouragement. Thanks to Wayward for sticking up for the Girl Scouts motives with your misinformed customer and their negativity, you won us over, once again! Also thanks to your staff who were awesome!! One more thanks to our internet friends who have asked to donate to the troop, it has left us speechless. A big hug to each and every one of you!
The cakes all sold out. We raised $180. Half went to the Pigs Peace Sanctuary and half to the little vegan’s troop. Last year the entire troop only raised $90 from the cookie sale!
The little vegan is so fortunate to have the opportunity to grow up surrounded by a community of such compassionate humans. We were able to get the word out and now maybe others will be willing to follow suite. Hmm…Maybe next year we could get all Seattle vegan girl scouts together for a massive bake sale, heck better yet maybe vegans across the country whose troops go through Little Brownie Bakery to show them there is a need to sell vegan cookies! We will address that next year. Tell your friends.
As parents we are also very proud of the little vegan who at seven had the courage to be different from her friends. She helped with the entire process from baking the cakes to selling them. We think she learned a lot, especially about what may be achieved when you are are willing to stand up for your beliefs. If you were inspired by this little piece of activism and would like to get involved, write to one or all of the following and tell them what you think.
