Dr. Eman Al-Shammari entered Guinness World Records with the biggest digital photo album, adding another entry to Kuwait in the most famous reference book. 

By organizing an anti-bullying campaign under the slogan (Shame on You), Al-Shammari received late Monday a letter from Guinness World Records after collecting the biggest digital photo album of different people with a sign expressing Kuwait's keenness on fighting sectarian, ethnic, and school bullying. 

The voluntary campaign managed to collect more than 13,000 photos of people carrying a sign that read (Shame on You) to help victims of bullying, especially children, to face such conduct, whether in schools or anywhere else, Al-Shammari told KUNA on Tuesday. 

The campaign was launched last December until February, while images were collected and sorted out throughout March, she noted.

Al-Shammari's aim was to promote social equality and acceptance of others regardless of nationality, race, religion, gender and personality, as she stressed the importance of rejecting violence and encouraging tolerance and equality amongst society members. 

She also expressed deep gratitude to Minister of Information and Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Al-Humoud Al-Sabah for his unlimited support, as well as volunteers, artists and social figures from Kuwait and abroad who took part in the campaign.
