To sell tens of thousands of Girl Scout cookies in two months is an incredible feat — one made even more special when it’s done during a pandemic. Lilly Bumpus, 8, made it her mission to sell as many cookies as she could this season. She wasn’t able to go door-to-door or set up tables outside of stores, but Bumpus could sell online and had a booth in the front yard of her San Bernardino, California, home. “She sold her freaking heart out til the last day of Girl Scout cookie season,” Bumpus’ mom, Trish Bauer, told the San Bernardino Sun. Last week, Bumpus, a cancer survivor, learned that she sold 32,484 boxes of cookies, breaking the record for most sold in a season. About 5,000 of the boxes are being donated to pediatric cancer patients, homeless individuals, and soldiers serving overseas. “It feels like the world believes in me and it feels really good,” Bumpus told the Sun.
