The Guinness World Records' record for the most stickers on a car is 10,221 achieved by the Family and Friends of Dr. Maryann Beebe (USA) in Oregon City, Oregon, USA.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest collection of stickers; it belongs to Nidhi Bansal (India) and consists of 102,317 stickers as of 16 September 2013, in Bassi Pathana, Punjab, India.
Throughout the month of November 2013 Victoria Hyundai gathered $1 donations for each sticker raising $15,000, all which was then gifted to Santa's Anonymous.
Commenting on the donations, Stephen Munro, Dealer Principal said, "I couldn't be more proud of our team here at the dealership. They came together, had some fun and most importantly helped over 1,300 families get a Christmas that they otherwise wouldn't have."
After placing the last sticker, Christine Hewitt, Executive Director for CFAX Santa's Anonymous said, "It's wonderful to live in a city that has such community-minded businesses like Victoria Hyundai. Santa's Anonymous has been helping families for 36 years in Victoria, and with leaders like Victoria Hyundai setting the standard year after year; I'm looking forward to the future."
