Yoko Ono Wants YOU to Help Her Make the World’s Biggest Peace Sign


Yoko Ono is looking for a few thousand good people to join hands with her on October 6 and form the world’s biggest human peace sign to celebrate John Lennon’s 75th birthday.

According to Rolling Stone , Ono would like to get “between 6,000 and 10,000” people to show up at Central Park’s East Meadow in New York just ahead of the late-singer’s October 9 birthday.

Ono announced her plan Thursday at an event promoting her non-profit, The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, held outside New York city hall last week. According to The New York Daily News , at the event, about two dozen children listened to Penny Dreadful star Reeve Carney play “Imagine” and other Lennon songs.

Ono tweeted a message on Thursday following the event:

The peace sign technically needs to gather at least 5,815 people to beat the current world record, set in Ithaca, New York, in 2008.

If you’re interested in participating, it’s free, though the event will be taking donations to support the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus. You can also register on the day of the event, so long as you get there before noon, or pre-register at right here.
