Berliner assembles over 10,000 toilet rolls in hopes of setting world record

Germany, Berlin
November 29, 2020 at 17:24 GMT +00:00 · Published

A 33 y/o Berliner Sabrina Golze made an enormous assembly out of over 10 thousand toilet paper rolls to create the word "Together", as she demonstrated on Saturday in Berlin's Mercedes-Benz Arena. Her main goal was to provide some fun to children, who were stuck at home due to COVID crisis, but now also to apply for a world record for the longest lettering made of toilet paper rolls.

Golze said that her life has been strongly affected by the COVID pandemic since she works in the childcare, so she started thinking of ways to help children not feel bored at home.

As panic shoppers the world over began hoarding toilet paper, Golze became inspired.

"I thought, since everyone has so much toilet paper at home, one can of course handicraft something with the cardboard and make a stance for the corona crisis," Sabrina explained.

"There hasn't been a requirement to have a minimal number of rolls, but I wanted myself to collect 8 thousand rolls so that big lettering can be made," she added.

After the Aldi supermarket chain helped her with her initiative to collect such a big number of rolls, she ended up having 10 thousand rolls.

Golze added that children painted them, but also wrote different messages on the rolls, such as expressing their thankfulness to nursing personnel and the police, the heroes of the corona-crisis.

After displaying her message in the Mercedes-Benz Arena, Sabrina will apply for recognition from Guinness World Records.
