We're glad you asked!
To celebrate the best part of Christmas- love- we enlisted some pretty great youth from Hamilton District Christian High School to help us with this feat! Measuring 1,047 metres, 7,335 candy canes were formed in lines and featured a giant heart.
The requirements were that all the candy canes had to be touching. The candy canes were supplied by Hamilton candy maker, Karma Candy, Inc. We've all 7,335 to some very deserving local charities so kids can enjoy them this Christmas!
Here's how it happened:
Today @worldvisioncan is attempting to set a @GWR for longest line of candy canes! #meaningfulgifts https://t.co/IPLVTGnLtc
We're so proud of our World Vision Gift Catalogue achievement! While some Canadians scramble to buy loved ones the perfect gift, thousands of other gift givers are choosing to celebrate the holidays and show their love for children around the world by getting them gifts from the World Vision Gift Catalogue. Share love this Christmas by giving #meaningfulgifts!
