HÀ NỘI – Nearly one thousand youngsters participated in the Dance for Kindness flash mob on Hà Nội’s pedestrian streets on Sunday to celebrate and promote World Kindness Day.
The event also calls on people to overcome every circumstance and territorial, cultural and religious border to create a world of trust, belief and love.
“Dance for Kindness is held more widely this year. Creating an opportunity for young people to join a flash mob like this is a good way to connect the young and spread the message of kindness,” Đỗ Đức Duẩn, head of the organising team, said.
Thousand volunteers joined the flash mob in their orange uniform. The event also drew MC Phan Anh and Miss Việt Nam 2010 Ngọc Hân.
“By participating at this event, I want to convey the message that this is what the world needs. It must be a world of kind people and kind acts,” MC Phan Anh said.
Besides dancing, an exhibition named "Kindness" was also held, featuring paintings of kids. The proceeds from the sale of the paintings will be donated to the “Warm winter in mountainous areas” fund.
Besides Hà Nội, the 2016 Dance for Kindness was also held in central Vinh City, Đà Nẵng and HCM City with the participation of about two thousand volunteers.
Dance for Kindness Việt Nam was established in 2014 and run by the youth with the aim of contributing to the community. The flash mob dance is the third of its kind to be held in Việt Nam. –VNS
