"World Record" chain letter. Kids (1996). "Mailing
is free." No list of names. Seven copies. US, 2005.
Would you like to help children
who started this letter in 1996?
If the chain isn't broken by the spring
of 2005 it will be in the Guinness Book of World Records,
along with the names of the kids (including
you) who took part in helping. So far nobody has
broken the chain! Please do not be
the first one to break it!
All you have to do is retype this letter
and send it by mail. Mailing is free. No stamp necessary!
All you have to do is write "Guinness
Book of World Records for Children" in the spot where
the stamp would usually go. (See my
envelope.) The reason you have to send it by mail is so the
Post Office knows who broke the chain.
You have 4 days to send this letter
to 7 people under the age of 16. The day you got the letter is
one. In a few days you will get a letter
thanking you for taking part.
THANKS A BUNCH!
