    World's Largest Wallet on Display in Harvard Square!

    Guinness Book of World Records to Crown Big Skinny with World’s Largest Wallet


    The Creators of the World’s Thinnest Wallet Unveil the Record Breaking Wallet for Non-Profit Donations



    Step away from your computer on Cyber Monday long enough to give back by visiting the unveiling of the world’s largest wallet by Big Skinny.  The celebration takes place in front of the Harvard Square T Station on Monday, November 29th between 11am and 7pm. Not only is Guinness recognizing the wallet as the first of its kind but the bright red wallet provides an opportunity to give back to those in need in a unique and fun way during the most wonderful time of the year.


    Beginning on the 29th of November and running through the December shopping season, the record-breaking wallet will be on display to the public in Harvard Square.  Donations can literally be placed in the wallet to aid local and national non-profits. Organizations such as Pediatric Aids Treatment Support (PATS) and the Jose Mateo Ballet Company will be on hand throughout the day to greet visitors and provide more information about their groups to those looking to learn more. 100% of all donations go to the organization present at the wallet each day.
