Salvation Army bell ringer broke world record in Mississippi

Now that Richardson's mission is complete, he said he plans to go to church, and then get some rest

MISSISSIPPI. (WWLP) – A Salvation Army bell ringer in Mississippi has broken a world record by standing and ringing those iconic jingle bells for 151 hours, straight!

Jamie Richardson stood outside of this 24-hour Wal-Mart for a week straight, rain or shine, collecting money.

That meant not sleeping for seven days in a row! Richardson broke the record early this morning, and credited the kindness of people who donated for giving him the strength to keep going.

Jamie Richardson, world record holder said, “I’ve even seen some homeless people give out money. That means everybody’s helping.”

Now that Richardson’s mission is complete, he said he plans to go to church, and then get some rest.
