The host of the 2016 Oscars, Chris Rock, used his Oscars platform to help his daughters sell girl scout cookies. The stars supported in droves. Many A-listers quickly jumped at the opportunity to support and bought cookies. Stars like Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, Michael Keaton, ¬†and Kate Winslet all bought baked delights from Rock’s daughters. Rock helped his daughters raise a whopping $65,243 for the greater Los Angeles troop. That’s over 13,000 boxes sold. Even Vice President Joe Biden gave Rock $20 bucks to support the Girl Scout’s troop. The Girl Scouts tweeted, “Girl Scout cookies being sold live on tv at the Academy Awards! Awesome! #cookieboss” All proceeds will stay with the Girl’s Troop Council and be used to benefit their community.
