Chicago teens create world record-breaking cereal mosaic, raising money for Ukraine

08/11/2022 | 06:52pm EST

(Reuters) - Teenagers in Chicago armed with boxes of breakfast cereal created a Guinness world record-breaking mosaic on Thursday - and raised money for Ukraine in the process.

Using some 5,000 boxes of cereal donated by Kellogg's, members of the Chicago Children United for Ukraine created a gigantic cereal mosaic on the floor of the Wintrust Financial Corporation's Grand Banking Hall in downtown Chicago.

They used yellow Corn Pops boxes and blue Rice Krispies to recreate a depiction of the Ukrainian flag. Ukraine has been fighting off a Russian invasion since February.

"We wanted to raise awareness for Ukraine," said 15-year-old Michael Kotcher. "So, we decided to break a record with a good cause behind it."

The cereal will be donated to a local food bank, while donors have pledged nearly $15,000 to the fundraiser so far.

"Its just great because we're helping globally and locally," said Kotcher.
