Her troops goal is 8250 boxes. So at 250 boxes a kid, that is 33 kids. Boxes now go for $4 a box. I remember when I was a kid, they were $1.50ish each. Oh the times have a changed for sure. I agree it is quite the racket, but at the same time they are also going to give some of the profits (not sure how much) to a local children's hospital (Miller's Children's Hospital), a local homeless shelter, and a local animal shelter, so at least something good will come from some of the profits.

To everyone who is offering to buy some cookies, I appreciate it and will hit you up with PMs either tomorrow or Friday

I will definitely be looking into that. She might not need a little red wagon to haul those suckers around after all.
