RocketHub campaign for Hurricane Sandy disaster response
A grassroots Brooklyn-based non-profit, Life Vest Inside, has orchestrated a global Dance for Kindness event on Nov 18th as part of the global celebrations that take place during World Kindness Week. The event will take place on the same day, to the same song and dance in countries across the globe: from the US to Australia, Chile to India, the UK to Canada and more countries being added daily.
LVI Founder Orly Wahba, states, “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 goal of Dance for Kindness is to promote kindness, positive human interaction and to help increase people’s awareness and sensitivity to others. At the event viewers will have the opportunity to see time STOP for kindness and take part in a dance uniting those around the globe under the banner of kindness. LVI Acts of Kindness cards will be distributed in each location to illustrate that kindness can create a ripple effect whose reach has no boundaries. The effect of the dance doesn’t end with the day but rather continues to live on through the video montage that will be created showcasing the countries around the globe dancing for 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 http://www.facebook.com/lifevestinside her home to a fire at the age of 15, is dedicated to giving back and helping families cope with their pain and loss. Wahba states, “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 musical artist DeScribe will be launching his single, We R 1, on the day of the event during the FreezeMob to kick off the event. http://www.describenation.com/ Describe will be making an appearance at the Times Square event.
