An 8-year-old girl in California has broken a Girl Scout record!
Lilly Bumpus of San Bernardino has sold the most boxes of Girl Scout Cookies EVER in one season: 32,484 boxes.
Selling online and in front of her home, Lilly used her unique platform for selling cookies to promote charity, including childhood cancer research.
That's a lot of Thin Mints. https://t.co/nW43k0r7cz

Lilly herself dealt with a rare form of childhood cancer called Ewing’s sarcoma.
People from all 50 states and other countries purchased their cookies from Lilly and those boxes will be sent out to hospitals, homeless centers, and to troops overseas.
