Charity World Records

Charity world records prove that there is something better than becoming a world record holder: becoming a record holder while raising a ton of cash or awareness for a greater cause. World records have been set in aid of everything from cancer research to dog rescue funds. Activities include autographing a shoe, eating dog biscuits, and, in an extraordinary display of altruism, baking a huge batch of pumpkin pies and donating them to a mission.
