Dignity Health Glendale Memorial’s Chief of Staff Dr. Douglas Webber applies kind-hearted handprints to the walls of the hospital’s Bridge to the Heart Center as part of an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most handprints in a collage. The more than 80,000 handprints, collected from 600 schools across the country, symbolize students’ commitment to kindness.
Dignity Health and Kids for Peace, home to the Great Kindness Challenge, joined forces to break the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of cut-out handprints in a collage, which was assembled and displayed at Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital.
Students from local Glendale schools attempt a record-breaking display of kindness at Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital on May 11. In partnership with Kids for Peace, students, doctors and hospital staff lined the hospital’s Bridge to the Heart Center with the handprints as part of Dignity Health’s Hello humankindness campaign.
Together with students from local schools, volunteers from Kids for Peace and Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital created a record-breaking display of kindness on the walls of the hospital’s Bridge to the Heart Center. These handprints represent 181,833 students’ commitment to kindness, shattering the previous record of 30,006 handprints.
The display is made up of paper handprints collected from more than 600 schools across the U.S. – including 25 schools in Southern California.
