She’s not a girl scout, but reality TV star Honey Boo Boo has been selling those famous cookies for a friend in the Scouts at $3.50 per box through her Facebook page and taking some massive orders.
You would think that the Girl Scouts would be happy, but the organization is reportedly making a move to shut down little Boo Boo’s operation. They say online sales are counter to the group’s purpose of developing Scouts’ people skills while selling cookies.
However, Mama June isn’t stopping anytime soon and says they’ll keep going full steam ahead despite the warnings from the Girl Scouts. She says “if I can raise more money for a troop, whoever they are, especially in an area where they don’t get a lot of money and parents can’t afford to buy a ton of cookies, why wouldn’t I help?”
She added, “we’re doing nothing wrong.”
A rep from the organization also adds that they want them to stop because it’s unfair to other girls trying to sell cookies.
