KNWA via NBC -- An Oklahoma City girl says she asks everyone she meets to buy Girl Scout cookies - and that determination has paid off.

Katie Francis has broken the organization's decades-old sales record by a margin about the size of a Thin Mint.

Francis sold 18,107 boxes in the seven-week sales period that ended Sunday night. The previous record was set by Elizabeth Brinton in the 1980s, who sold approximately 18,000 one year.

And before you assume Katie's record is a fluke - she sold a whopping 12,428 boxes last year.

Her troop receives a share of the proceeds from the fundraiser and intends to donate to breast cancer research.
