In Coos County, Oregon, a 9-year-old girl known as the Pop-Tart Princess is making headlines.

Last year for her 8th birthday, Karly Mullanix asked for pop-tarts. But not for her. Karly asked the community in Coos County to donate as many boxes of Pop-Tarts as possible so she could give them to people experiencing homelessness in the county.

Despite being at the height of the pandemic last summer, Karly’s birthday goal was a success. So, she decided to make it a tradition.

This year, Karly and her community were able to donate more than 5,000 boxes of pop-tarts.

The Pop-Tart Princess turned 9 this past Saturday.
