VENTNOR, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – The world is coming together for a good cause.

The mother of an autistic child in New Jersey is trying to break the world record for most people simultaneously blowing bubbles in multiple locations.

Isabelle Mosca, of Ventnor, has volunteers in more than 90 locations across the country Friday. They’re aiming to break the record of 34,529 set in 198 locations in England in 2007.

Mosca’s autistic son, Kyle, loves blowing bubbles, as do many other autistic children. That led Mosca to use bubble-blowing as a way to raise money and awareness for autism research.

She got thousands to participate last year, but people at many events failed to properly document their participation as required by Guinness World Records. This time she’s taking no chances, with detailed paperwork required.
