WARREN, Ohio (January 16, 2007) — You just never know who will buy a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies — or a thousand.
Ten-year-old Alexis Moyers of Geneva, Ohio, is a fan of comedian Ellen DeGeneres. So she e-mailed the talk show host to ask if she would buy some Girl Scout cookies to help her troop pay for a trip to New York.
DeGeneres didn’t just buy some boxes, she ordered one-thousand, at three dollars, 50 cents a box. A Girl Scout spokeswoman says DeGeneres ordered an assortment of cookies.
The show’s publicist says DeGeneres placed her order with Alexis during a telephone call that aired during Thursday’s show. On a show that will air today, DeGeneres will get her cookies and present Alexis with a check for 35-hundred dollars.
