I was fortunate to have survived the small plane crash with my 18 year old daughter last year. We could do this in part through earlier lessons learned from others. This experience has motivated me to kick-up my support of the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.

Jim Michaels D.D.S. purchased hundreds of Girl Scout cookies from Oconomowoc, WI girls this spring during their 2011 Girl Scout Cookies drive. Always a top supporter of the group, Michaels support became more ardent his year having survived a dangerous Rocky Mountains small plane crash with his daughter last summer. Taking his care one step further, he sent all the cookies to US Troops overseas.

Jim Michaels D.D.S. made an offer to all Oconomowoc Girl Scouts that he would purchase 2 boxes of cookies from each girl who came to his office and asked. Hundreds came and Michaels bought and bought and bought.

Selling Girl Scout Cookies is an important component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience for girls. The Girl Scouts offer a wide range of programs that help girls survive better through any situation they may encounter in life.

“I was fortunate to have survived the small plane crash with my 18 year old daughter last summer. We were able to walk away from the crash and survive overnight until Park rescuers found us. We could do this in part through earlier training and lessons learned from others in similar situations. This experience has motivated me to kick-up my support of the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts,” says Jim Michaels D.D.S. (http://www.facebook.com/JamesMichaelsDDS)

Kicking it up another notch, Michaels then contacted Operation Gratitude, a non-profit group, for their help in sending all the cookies to US Troops deployed in hostile and remote regions overseas where physical conditions are difficult.

Jim Michaels D.D.S. has now made the same offer to local Boy Scotts for their upcoming fund raiser in a program where he will buy any two items they are selling.

Girl Scouts of America was founded by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912 in Savannah, GA and the organization has been helping girls for more than 90 years. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Today, there are 3.2 million Girl Scouts—2.3 million girl members and 880,000 adult members working primarily as volunteers.

Operation Gratitude seeks to lift morale and put smiles on faces by sending care packages addressed to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed in harm's way.
