Selling tens of thousands of Girl Scout cookies in just two months is an incredible feat and it’s only made more special when it’s done during a pandemic.
Eight-year-old Lilly Bumpus made it her mission to sell as many cookies as she could this season within the restrictions. She wasn’t able to go door-to-door or set up a table outside of a grocery store, but she could sell online and have a booth in the front yard of her San Bernardino, California, home.
Bumpus is a cancer survivor, and her troop is mostly made up of other kids who have either battled cancer, are still fighting it, or lost a loved one to the disease.
Her fellow Scouts showed up at her house to surprise Bumpus and share some good news: she sold 32,484 boxes of cookies, breaking the record for most boxes sold in a season.
About 5,000 of the boxes are being donated to pediatric cancer patients, homeless people, and soldiers serving overseas.
