Feel Good Story of the Week: Girl Scout Shatters Record By Selling 32,484 Boxes of Cookies in One Season

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.
