Press release from Dance for Kindness
Over 200 dancers took to the streets of Red Bank on November 12th to promote kindness during World Kindness Week, uniting with over 120 cities, 50 countries and 15,000 participants.
Life Vest Inside, a non-profit organization on a mission to empower and unite the world with kindness, sponsored this World Wide “Dance for Kindness” event. This flash mob dance is a part of the global celebrations that inspires, empowers and educates people of all backgrounds to lead a life of kindness, showing that regardless of the differences in race, religion, ethnicity culture and background – the common thread that unites us all is kindness.
“Neighborhood Love Notes” were written with chalk throughout the streets by participants reminding onlookers that a simple act of kindness can change the life of another. Kindness posters created by the Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students from the Red Bank Charter School were displayed throughout the businesses on Broad Street between White Street & Mechanic Street.
