MoneyGram Foundation and Simon Says Give Set a New Guinness World Record

Payments , Money Transfers

 MoneyGram, a leading global money transfer and payment services company, is excited to announce that the MoneyGram Foundation and U.S.-based, nonprofit organization Simon Says Give®, have set a new Guinness World Record for stuffing the most backpacks with school supplies in eight hours! More than 1,000 volunteers stuffed 8,000 backpacks during the Simon Says Give High Five for Supplies® event at Mall of America. The backpacks will be given to children in need in Minnesota.

The event was made possible through a $50,000 grant from the MoneyGram Foundation to the Simon Says Give organization.  

"The MoneyGram Foundation is honored to support children's education by funding the tools students need to learn and succeed in the classroom," said Joann Chatfield, MoneyGram International's chief marketing officer. 

Minnesota-based employees of MoneyGram also supported the initiative by volunteering and holding a donation drive for new school supplies prior to the event. 

This is the second installment of the MoneyGram Foundation's worldwide event series aimed at supporting children's education while engaging MoneyGram employees through opportunities to participate and give back in the communities where they live and work.
