Those eight words spoken in 2005 by a 10 year-old Girl Scout had a profound change on Medical Missions for Children. Those eight words caused Frank Brady to have an “a-ha moment” and realize that soliciting donations was not the only way to fund a charity. After all, the Girl Scouts sold over a million boxes of cookies in 2005 to fund their organization.

Frank realized that for Medical Missions for Children to be sustainable over the long-term he had to develop “cookies" for MMC to stabilize the roller-coaster cycle of donations.

His definition of a “cookie” is a “for profit venture” organized to provide a consistent stream of donations to a designated charity.
