1. Leaving a trail
A charity shop in England hopes to raise enough in donated coins to set the world record for the longest trail of coins, according to the Surrey Mirror.
The current record stands at 46.75 miles. The shop, Script in Merstham, needs 4.6 million coins in order to break that mark.
"Script's owners, who also have a branch in West Sussex, decided to attempt the feat to raise awareness of their cause – helping women in Calcutta – as well as funds," the Mirror report reads.
