14th November, 2016: Life Vest Inside, in association with Those In Need and Karma Foundation, organized Dance for Kindness, a Worldwide Freeze Mob/Flash Mob event, at Connaught Place. The purpose of the event was to connect everyone – group or individual – across the globe unite under the banner of kindness and join together to perform to the same song, same dance, all happening on the same day.
This year Dance of Kindness happened in two locations – in Delhi, Raahgiri, Connaught Place and at Queen Mary’s, Rohini. Around 200 dancers at Connaught Place and more than 350 students along with parents and teacher took participation in #DFK2016. The volunteers created the longest KINDNESS CHAIN and afterwards distributed 700 ‘Act of Kindness’ tokens to general audience requesting them to perform one act of kindness specified on card & pass the card on.
People came from far and beyond from, some from Haridwar, and also students from Kilkari Rainbow NGO to dance along with other people.
This year, thousands of dancers and volunteers danced to spread the message of world peace, love, and hope and world unity as a ray of hope with their dance.“We are planning to add more people to our kindness chain next year and create a nuclear effect of kindness’’ said Abhishek Saini, Group Leader New, India.
Life Vest Inside is an internationally present grass-root non-profit-organisation based out of New York City whose mission is to inspire, empower and educate people of all backgrounds to lead a life of kindness. Dance for Kindness serves as Life Vest Inside’s Annual Fundraiser as well as a means of building awareness of World Kindness Day.
