Life Vest Inside, a Brooklyn based non-profit organization has out together a global Dance For Kindness which is to take place on November 18th in more than 20 countries. The dance mob is set to kick of World Kindness Week. The dancers will be dancing all over the world in countries such as the US, Canada, Chile, India, Singapaore, Australia, Brazil and many more. The US event is scheduled to take place in Times Square at 11:00am EST.
The dancers will all be dancing to the new single WR1 by hassidic hip-hop artist Describe.
Life Vest Inside Founder Orly Wahba said of the event, which is doubling as a fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Sandy:
“To some, the world is filled with war, hatred, violence and hopelessness but we firmly believe that we have the power to fill this world with kindness, trust, hope and love. The day will no longer be a day solely about Dancing for Kindness, but more importantly ACTING in Kindness! World Kindness Day will become a day in which we celebrate the power we have to make a difference when we are united through the common cause of Kindness. This campaign represents Life Vest Inside’s efforts at throwing a life vest to those who are drowning in a sea of troubles; a reminder that they are not alone and while it may take time to get their lives back in order we will help keep them afloat.”
The goal of the event is promote kindness, positive human interaction and to help increase awareness of people’s differences. Event organizers will be handing out Kindness Cards to passersby in order to spread the message of kindness.
In response to the disaster brought about by Hurricane Sandy, Life Vest Inside is declaring a Call to Action and launching a fundraising campaign through RocketHub on the day of event. Funds raised will be distributed directly to the families in the Queens area who have lost their homes to fire. Wahba, who lost her home to a fire at the age of 15, is dedicated to giving back and helping families cope with their pain and loss.
