Boys used five thousand boxes of breakfast cereal; they aim to ‘raise awareness about Ukraine’
Five thousand boxes were used to assemble the Ukrainian flag mosaic
North American adolescents and residents of Chicago created a giant mosaic of the flag of Ukraine using breakfast cereal boxes donated by Kellogg’s. In all, five thousand products, in yellow and blue, were used, and the work is located on the floor of the Grand Banking Hall of Wintrust Financial Corporation, in downtown Chicago. “We wanted to raise awareness about Ukraine,” said 15-year-old Michael Kotcher. “So we decided to break a record with a good cause behind it.” The mosaic was chosen by the Guinness Book on Thursday, 11th, as the largest cereal mosaic ever made. The cereal will be donated to a local food bank and donors have so far pledged nearly $15,000 to fundraisers. As a bonus, teens are also helping those in need in Chicago by donating the cereal. “It’s great because we’re helping globally and locally,” Kotcher said.
