Online Participation

Mags and Nuts

The Magazines, Nuts, and Candy Online Program allows girls to take orders for nuts or candy items, magazines and photo keepsake by sending emails to family and friends. Girls are encouraged to send emails the first week of the Fall Product Program to allow time for their customers to order. Girls’ online sales count toward their rewards and troop proceeds, and girls can learn valuable digital marketing skills when they participate in the online portion of the program.

To participate in selling Fall Product online, caregivers are asked to visit  girlscouts.qspgao.com/gateway to set up an account. After registering, girls may customize their website and invite friends and family to shop their online store of magazines, photo keepsakes, and the full variety of nuts, candy and specialty items.

Individual girls may participate in the online sale even if their troop does not. Please contact gsfallproduct@girlscouts-gateway.org for details on individual girl participation.

Rewards

Every girl and troop that participates in the Fall Product Program has the opportunity to earn exciting rewards while supporting Girl Scout programs and becoming experts in the five skills. Troops can get a head start on funding this year’s activities while earning credits for a troop camping experience* at one of our camp properties or even earn a free certification class* for specific classes offered by Girl Scouts of Gateway Council.

* Expiration dates apply for troop camp credits and class certificates.

Design Your Own Patch!

A favorite incentive of the online program is the MyCreation™ custom mascot, which allows girls — and adults — to create their very own mascot to share their online message.

New this year, each girl’s mascot will be combined with others from her troop for a MyTroopCreation™ photo.

When girls reach $150 in online sales, they’ll earn a special patch featuring their custom mascot, their name and the program date! An email from the vendor will alert caregivers when their girl has reached this goal.

A troop volunteer can also earn this patch when their troop reaches $350 in online sales. An email from the vendor will alert the volunteer when they have earned this patch.
