Chicago teenagers made Ukrainian flag out of cereal boxes

In the American state of Chicago, teenagers laid out a mosaic in the form of a Ukrainian flag from cereal boxes. They broke the world record and, in addition, fundraised 15 thousand dollars to help Ukraine.

Reuters writes about this.

The mosaic was laid out by members of the Children of Chicago United for Ukraine organization on the floor of the Great Hall of the Wintrust Financial Corporation right in downtown Chicago.

To recreate the image of the Ukrainian flag, the teenagers used about 5,000 boxes of cereal (yellow and blue) provided by Kellogg's breakfast cereal company.

The mosaic was included in the Guinness Book of Records: the previous record of the cereal mosaic was 4,000 boxes.

Now the cereal will be handed over to a local food bank, and donors have already pledged to provide about 15,000 dollars, which the children will send to help Ukraine.

"We wanted to draw attention to Ukraine. So we decided to break the record for a good reason," said 15-year-old Michael Kotcher of the Chicago Children's Organization.
