Oakland, California, UNITED STATES

OAKLAND, Calif., March 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LaunchDarkly, the leader in feature management, today announced a partnership with Girl Scouts of Northern California (GSNorCal) for their 2023 Cookie Program. Details of the relationship between LaunchDarkly and GSNorCal include:

  • LaunchDarkly is supporting Digital Cookie online shops in the Northern California region for the 2023 Cookie Season from March 8 through April 23.
  • A special incentive on March 12, 2023, to make shipping more accessible with a $5.00 flat rate on that day for GSNorCal cookie customer orders.
  • LaunchDarkly’s marketing and design team has developed media assets to help GSNorCal members promote the cookie program, including providing graphic designs, Zoom backgrounds, social ads, and videos that these entrepreneurs can use to build their personal Digital Cookie online shops.
  • LaunchDarkly and GSNorCal have also developed a co-branded landing page, that will be live from March 8 through April 23; and visitors can use this page as a local search engine to find Girl Scouts of Northern California entrepreneurs that are selling cookies both in-person and online.

“I am thrilled to see LaunchDarkly partner with Girl Scouts of Northern California, especially as their focus has continued to include entrepreneurship and STEM-related education,” said Edith Harbaugh, Co-founder and Executive Chair at LaunchDarkly. “This partnership holds special meaning to me personally as I was a proud Girl Scout for many years growing up; and I learned valuable lessons about sales through selling cookies and management from being a cookie manager, while also learning the importance of perseverance and dedication to one’s goals by achieving the Silver Award.”

There is more than meets the eye when it comes to the common ground shared by these two organizations. Girl Scouts of Northern California have developed impactful programs around entrepreneurship and STEM, empowering their members to embody the same principles found at LaunchDarkly. Similarly, the software company has committed itself to supporting social causes such as GSNorCal and believes in their endeavor to educate and create tomorrow’s burgeoning leaders.

“Girl Scouts of Northern California is grateful to LaunchDarkly for supporting our local Girl Scouts with shipping incentives and digital tools to have the most successful cookie program,” said Bri Seoane, CEO of GSNorCal. “It’s great to see a fellow Girl Scout alum, Edith Harbaugh, build a company on the values and skills she learned when she wore the sash and to support budding entrepreneurs and leaders locally.”
