Jerry Moran is an awesome mentally-challenged guy from Champaign, IL. Many years ago, he started a key chain collection. At the current time, he has around 19,000. We would like to help him build his collection so he can be entered in the Guinness Book of Records. That record is currently a little over 41,000. He is almost a fourth of the way there!!!

This blog was created by friends of Jerry who want to see him set a new world record. It will track his progress and share pictures of his collection. Each key chain is a joy and a treasure to Jerry! If anyone has any key chains they would like to donate, we would appreciate your help!! He is especially interested in key chains from out-of-state and very, very interested in international key chains!

Thanks for your help!!

Key chains (and good luck) may be sent to:

Keychains for Jerry

Champaign, IL 61821

If you are located in the CU area,
you may drop off keychains at
CU Public Health District, 201 W. Kenyon Dr, Champaign
OR Email us to pick them up.
