12,391 Letters = 12,391 Smiles

Festival of Children Foundation would like to thank Team Kids and the students at Vista Verde, a K-8 Blue Ribbon school in the Irvine Unified school district, for collaborating with us on our World Record attempt for "most letters to military personnel in one month."  

Between April 12th and May 12th, 2014, we collected a total of 12,391 letters for our Guinness World Record attempt.  The current record was 10,000, and our count is well over that. To make it official, we're submitting evidence to Guinness World Records in London, England, along with witness statements and details of our claim.

We hear it takes the folks at Guinness approximately 12 weeks to review and confirm a World Record.   We'll announce that good news (fingers crossed!) here on our blog as soon as we hear back.  In the meantime, it good to know that we  put 12,391 smiles on our troops' faces!
