After being banned from selling Girl Scout cookies online on her Facebook page by the Girl Scout Organization, 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' star Alana Thompson decided to take matters into her own adorable little hands. With the help of some GoGo Juice, Thompson sold cookies with her local troop in Milledgeville, Georgia.

Last week, the Girl Scouts organization shut down Boo Boo from selling the cookies via her Facebook page. But mama didn't approve. She said in a statement to Pacific Coast News: "If I can raise more money for a troop, whoever they are, especially in an area where they doniÌ t get a lot of money, and parents can't afford to buy a ton of cookies, why wouldn't I help?"

The whole gang showed up to support the Scouts, including father Mike 'Sugar Bear' Thompson, Mother June, sisters Jessica 'Chubs', Lauryn 'Pumpkin' and Anna 'Chickadee' along with baby Kaitlyn.

Alana, displaying her saleswoman skills, made a deal with shoppers that if they purchase five boxes of cookies from the troop she would pose for a picture with them.

She's quite the enterprising young thing, isn't she? But at least she's got a big heart.
