cookie blues

Posted on Wed, Oct 16, 2013 at 3:35 PM

My daughter has been in a non-profit, girls only organization since she was 5 years old. This organization does a lot for the community and overall my daughter enjoys the weekly meeting. However I recently learned of a new "policy" her unit has started regarding a yearly cookie selling campaign. This year for the first time each girl was given 2 cases (that's 48 boxes) of cookies to sell within 2 weeks. This is one extra CASE then previous years. At first I thought this was merely a suggestion to sell both cases however I recently learned that any girl who fails to sell all boxes will be REQUIRED to spend a Saturday morning solicitating the unsold cookies in front of a local store. Since when has this organization set such a quota on parents to sell these cookies (yes it's mostly the parents who end up pushing these cookies on family and co workers)!! What happens if you work from home, no family near by or really have nobody interested in your cookies?? Why should familes have to cancel their Saturday plans because their kid didn't make the cookie quota. Really... wow times have changed! I belonged to this group when I was a kid. Back when it was actually fun... —take your cookies and shove 'em!
