Girl Scouts Are Setting Up DIY 'Vending Machines' To Safely Sell Their Cookies

As the pandemic drags on, it's unfortunately bad news to some small businesses and small-time entrepreneurs. If you rely on face-to-face selling, there's no doubt you've had some challenges.

The same can be said about the Girl Scouts. Every year they bring their cookies right to your door. So what are they supposed to do now? Well, check out this brilliant idea.

One thing I like about the Girl Scouts is that they teach young girls how to be mini-entrepreneurs.

After all, it takes some skills to sell all of your Girl Scout cookies, no? These young ladies are developing important life skills.

So I can't imagine how much of a challenge the pandemic must have thrown upon these opportunities. I bet all those girls felt quite devastated to be unable to bring the joy of cookies to everybody.

But leave it to the Girl Scouts to come up with a clever solution.

I mean, they do teach them a thing or two in the program. So I'm not surprised these girls just had to come up with something.

I admit it's not as fancy as the other ones, but I'll take it. Any way, I can get my hands on cookies sounds good to me. There never is just one way of doing something.
