Among the several hundred orange-clad participants were Amanda Gorfain of Red Bank and her mother, Joanna Leddin of Fair Haven, who rehearsed with others for about three weeks. “It was something we could do together, and a no-brainer to support kindness,” said Gorfain. “Who doesn’t want to be part of a flash mob at the exact same moment that they are doing this all over the world?”

We’ve got tons of photos, plus a neat video, after the “read more.” (Photos by Susan Ericson and John T. Ward.)
