Apples and Girl Scout Cookies



I’m not asking you to buy Girl Scout cookies
so my daughter’s troop can take that trip to DC
or buy a chocolate bar so my son’s softball team
can get new jerseys
purchase pizzas, or cookie dough, or wrapping paper, or candles
so the school can get a climbing wall
cut a check for the sports boosters
so the stadium can be replaced

These are all valuable and worthy things

What I’m asking is for you
to donate
so together we can try and save my daughter’s life
