Each year Girls Scouts around the country set out to sell the irresistible Samoas, Trefoils, Thin Mints and more. We love to see the younger generation turning on their entrepreneurial spirits for a good cause.
One young Girl Scout turned to the help of social media and Cardi B to help boost her sales. Kiki Paschall made a Girls Scout cookie-inspired remix to the rapper’s song “Money.”
The 10-year-old recorded the video in front of boxes of cookies, rapping about money and cookie sales. “All my troops really need is money. Selling cookies to get some, money. Please real not monopoly, money. I got girls in my troop, cookies to the roof, money. I got girls in my troop, cookies to the roof, money.”

Paschall posted her video on social media, and it immediately gained traction. A few days later, Girl Scouts USA posted it.
Since then, the video has gone viral and garnered more than 80,000 likes, 26,000 retweets,and 867 comments.
Cardi B even responded, tweeting, “I want all the cookieshhh.”

Not only did her Black Girl Magic radiate online, it’s also translated into cookie sales. She has sold more than 1,000 boxes and plans to sell more.
According to CBSLA, “Now she and her fellow troop members are ordering more cookies. Hopefully, they’ll make enough money to serve meals at a homeless shelter, visit a senior center and take a year-end trip to the National Museum of African American History in D.C.”
