Jennifer Garner Is Sending Girl Scout Cookies to Her Fans Again
Last year, Garner sent out boxes of Thin Mints and Trefoils with handwritten notes
Girl Scout leader Jen Garner is at it again!
For the second year in a row, the actress and mom to Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7, is offering to send Girl Scout cookies to any of her Instagram followers who might not have a local troop to buy from.
“Hi I’m a Girl Scout leader and I over-ordered,” she said in an adorable video on her Instagram story Friday. “Anyone who doesn’t have access to Girl Scouts—because clearly here in Los Angeles these people are overrun with Girl Scout cookies—I’m just going to send them to you.”
Garner then instructs her fans to email JenHasExtra@gmail.com to get their hands on some Thin Mints, Trefoils, Samoas and more.
“Just email here and the first whatever people until we run out, just tell us what you want and we’ll send you some if we can until we run out,” she says before signing off. “Okay, have a great day. Bye.”
You know she’s serious because last year, the Love, Simon star also posted about how she, like most parents this time of year, was outside a grocery story selling cookies.
“Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints,” she captioned a candid snap on Instagram, in which she held a homemade sign advertising the treats. She also added the hashtags “#tistheseason,” “#comeandgetem” and “#whodoesntloveagirlscout.”
After selling the cookies outside the grocery store, Garner took to her Instagram story to announce she would be sending boxes to a few of her followers. “While my Girl Scout and Brownie have to sell their own cookies, I did buy a limited number of boxes from them to share with you guys,” she said. “So if you truly have no Girl Scout in your life, please send me your order and your address and I will try to hook you up.”
She made good on her promise and a few days later documented the process of mailing out the boxes with handwritten notes.
“Signed, sealed, and coming your way,” she captioned a final shot of herself with all her shipping boxes, adding the hashtag #OnMyHonor.”
In 2016, Garner revealed that she’s a true cookie salesperson at heart during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael. “I’m the one telling the girls, you know, ‘Try to talk about the gluten free because they’re a dollar more.’ Let’s have an upsell!” she said.
The star also shared that she went through “intense” training to become a scout group leader, but when it comes to selling cookies, most buyers aren’t phased by the fact that a celebrity is there.
“Nobody cares,” she said. “I’m just there with the troop.”
