A Girl Scout from Saint Andrews School in Chicago managed to sell 13,000 boxes of cookies, winning a trip to Disney World!

Giada Gambatese's business strategy? A video.

Giada sent a video she made to friends and family asking for their support in her cookie sales. She sold cookies for “Gift of Caring,” a Girl Scout initiative focused on supporting and comforting military personnel. Through the organization, many of the cookies were sent to soldiers overseas.

Giada joined WGN Morning News Wednesday. When asked if the other girls in her troop were happy or jealous for her, she replied, “both.”

As the winner of the free trip the Disney World, she is looking forward to the rides. Even with her trip ahead of her, Giada is already looking to future cookie sales.

“I’m going to sell even more next year,” she said.
