In 2015, gift retailer RedBalloon gathered 320 Santas to break the Guinness World Book of Records for the largest surfing lesson in support of a great cause. When Christmas time came around again this year, the santas didn’t want to be so nice any longer. They went extreme wild style with skydiving!
The United Press International (UPI) reported that 150 Santas went skydiving in Australia and broke the Guinness World Record for “most tandem parachute jumps in eight hours”. One by one, all of the Santas took the leap, performing several tandem skydiving jumps, one after another. The stunt was coordinated by RedBalloon and cancer charity Camp Quality, helping children live better with the disease. The creative marketing campaign by Red Balloon continues to be a success for both parties, raising a total of $5,000 for the children of Camp Quality.
RedBalloon CEO Nick Baker commented in regards to the success of the charity event. Baker stated, “RedBalloon is all about creating moments and that’s something we definitely achieved today. We hope that each and every participant had fun and relished the opportunity to tick skydiving off their bucket list, and leaves today with another great Christmas memory”.
“We loved being a part of this very special Guinness World Records event and it was great to see the smiles on the faces of our Camp Quality families,” Camp Quality Regional Manager ACT/Illawarra Sonia Cameron said. This was a phenomenal campaign performed by an enormous amount of Santas, all for the support of one of the single most greatest causes in the world–children’s cancer.
