1 million links of love & hope to unite the world and set a Guinness World Record
Kids for Peace Global is inviting the entire world to come together to share messages of love & hope while making the world’s longest paper-chain ever! Link by link, we will demonstrate that we truly are connected and we are all in this together! We will set a new Guinness World Record by creating a 110+ mile inspirational paper-chain by collecting 1.5 million links of recycled/reused paper each with a message of love & hope for the world. Once social-distancing is lifted and it is again safe to gather in groups, we will assemble our Linked By Love paper-chain. After the chain is officially measured for the Guinness World Record, we will distribute sections to hospitals, senior centers, libraries and more as a beautiful reminder that we are all Linked By Love!
Lucy's Kids for Peace is challenging our community contribute 2020 links to this world record-setting paper chain! If you would like to participate, sign up using the button below to create 20 links. You may create your own links using the directions below OR you can include your address when you sign up and we will happily mail you blank links to decorate!
Please share this sign up with others and let's get 101 families to come together to contribute 2020 links! You may also FILL OUT THE FORM HERE to stay updated on the Linked by Love campaign.
How To Create Love Links
1. Gather Recycled/Reused Paper – Let’s be mindful of the environment. We plan to make the entire paper-chain from recycled or reused paper. The weight of the paper should be thin enough to easily mail/bend and thick enough to create a sturdy link in the paper-chain. Suggested materials include brown paper shopping bags, large mailing envelopes, cereal/food boxes, and craft paper scraps.
2. Measure & Cut Links – Each strip must be between 11 inches – 18 inches long and 1.5 inches wide.
3. Decorate Links with Love & Hope – You can get as creative as you’d like as you share messages of LOVE and HOPE for the world, however we ask that you avoid gluing 3-dimensional objects that may create waste/litter when assembled. Use markers, paint, crayons, sharpies, pencils or pens. We will feature many of the links on our website and on social media to inspire the world.
4. Place Your Links In An Envelope & Mail – You may fold the links in half if needed to fit in your envelope. DO NOT turn your links into a chain – we will assemble the chain once it is safe to gather. Mail Your Links to Kids for Peace HQ at the address below. Please include your return address on the envelope so we can track where all the links are coming from!
