Harvest for Kids kicked off their fundraising campaign Thursday as they aim for a new world record this August. 

People were gathered at the Legislature Building Thursday afternoon as the Harvest for Kids campaign was officially launched. They are aiming for a Guinness World Record for most combines working in a field at one time. Their hope is 300.

"Our goal is to work with the farming community to be able to use their skills and abilities to help us raise funds," said Harvest for Hope's National Director Dave Thiessen.

All funds raised will go to Children's Camps International, which helps children in developing countries go to summer camp.

"We work with about 2500 churches right now (around the world), but there's about 1500 more we could work with," said Ray Wieler, founder and president of Children's Camps International. "We ask the churches to participate and cover at least half the cost of the camp. Then they get to own it, believe in it, and keep carrying on, even when we move on to help others."

This world record attempt would also end up sending up to one million kids to camp in developing countries. Thiessen says he's confident they will meet their goals because the agriculture community always comes together to help others.

The event will take place August 4 in Winkler. Winkler previously held the record before it was beaten by Saskatchewan, with 244 combines.
