Guinness World Record Attempt!
Guinness World Record Attempt!
Need your help! I've applied to Guinness World Records to collect 1 million used lottery tickets which also includes scratch-off tickets. If I try to do it by myself, I'll be 90 by the time I accomplish this goal. But with your help, it's possible to do much, much sooner.
Both businesses and individuals can help out. Did you know that you can do more than just collect tickets for me? I'm grateful for any and all help you can give me to accomplish this seemingly impossible goal.
For those businesses and individuals who wish national exposure for assisting me with this project, you'll receive publicity--unless you request to remain anonymous.
As of 7/11/19, I've already been interviewed on WLOS television station out of Asheville, NC (John Le was the interviewer and Matthew Yates was the photographer.) I also was interviewed by Dwyer and Michaels Morning Radio Show (97X) out of Quad Cities in Davenport, IA! In addition, I've been contact by people as far away as Quebec, Canada on social media!
The lottery tickets can be old; age doesn't matter.
The tickets can be from any state--or country.
Would you like to help--there are many ways.
1. Collection Points Needed: I need businesses to set up collection boxes for the tickets. Your business name, address, website, and telephone number will be posted on this website so people know where to drop of their tickets.
2. If you are a business that sells lottery tickets, from any state, once the tickets are validated and paid out, they are worthless. That means that they can be donated and I can still use them as part of my count.
3. Individual Collections: Often individuals have a stack of losing tickets at their home, in their glove compartment, or in a drawer at work. One woman gave me over 200 tickets that she had stashed in her home. Remember, the date on the ticket/scratch-off does not matter. Also, tickets can be from any state--or country.
4. Storage Area needed to eventually hold approximately 334 boxes which translates to an area slightly larger than 8 x 8 feet plus room for the door to open. It can be either a storage unit or a storage building/room in the Hendersonville, Flat Rock, or South Asheville, NC area. So, you have the option of either donating just the area to store the tickets and/or the area and the storage unit. Your business name, address, website, and telephone number can be posted on this website.
5. T-Shirts and/or magnetic banner for my vehicle: Need to have t-shirts designed and printed. Also need a magnetic banner that can be attached to my vehicle. If you wish to donate the designed, printed t-shirts and/or the magnetic banner, your business name, address, website, and telephone number will be posted on this website.
6. In need of cell phone service donated by a business or individual. For example, if an individual has a telephone family plan and they haven't used all of the lines, you could donate one of the lines. You can have information on this website or remain anonymous.
Why am I doing this? Several reasons:
1. I was scrolling through Guinness World Records looking for something non-sports related that I could try to do. There were several categories about lottery, but none for collecting tickets.
So, I applied to them to add a new category and the rest is history!
2. People are basically good and like to help out others when they can. This just gives others opportunities to do something good--to make a difference even if it's just a few tickets.
Currently have tickets from: NC & TX.
Thank you for all those individuals and businesses who want to help with this goal!
