Links of love and hope to unite the world!
Kids for Peace plans to set a new Guinness World Record by creating a 110+ mile inspirational paper-chain. They've been collecting links made of recycled/reused paper, each sharing a message of love and hope from around the world. As of October 2021, more than 500 schools committed to making paper chains in portions of a mile or more! And businesses, organizations, and individuals have been sending links their way. November 13, 2021—World Kindness Day—is their date to set a Guinness World Record.
Although a world record is pretty cool, here are just a few other benefits of this kindness project:
Each link maker joins with link makers across the world in this wish for peace and kindness.
Links have been created by families, in classrooms, schools, churches, businesses, organizations, among friends... sharing messages of kindness with others.
After November 13, 2021, portions of the chain will be distributed to hospitals, senior centers, libraries, schools, and more as a reminder that we are all linked by love.
Teaches by example that we are all in this together, each of us makes a difference all over the world.
Encourages communication, expression, art.
Increases kindness, compassion, creativity, understanding, fun, cooperation, joy, harmony, smiles, hope... peace.
