A wave that crashed against a Brazilian beach carried with it 84 surfers to break the Guiness Book of World Record for the most surfers on one wave. The event was sponsored by Earthwave and was done in an effort to support the anti-global warming campaign. That's one small wave for surfers and one giant tube for global-warming-opponentkind.

Implications - Charitable events have become more creative over the years in order to further raise awareness for issues. Organizations are going beyond telethons and fund raisers, opting for interactive events that really bring people together. This type of strategy is perfect in spreading the word on charity campaigns which will improve the chances of people helping out for a good cause.
