The Girl Scouts have ordered a North Carolina girl's plans to sell cookies online, fearing safety issues, the Associated Press reported.
The Ashville Scout member wanted to use YouTube to help sell cookies for her troop and raise enough money for them to go to summer camp, but the organization ordered the ad to be removed. Issues of fairness and safety were given for the decision.
It is understandable the Scouts did not want any chance of anything happening to the girls. Online predators are a major problem and this could have created problems for the organization throughout the country if others copied the idea.
