In honour of World Kindness Day (November 13th), similar events are also being organised in Ho Chi Minh City, Hai Phong, Nha Trang, Vinh and the southern province of Vinh Long.

Many celebrities joined the event in Hanoi including Miss Vietnam 2010 Dang Ngoc Han, Miss Global Beauty Queen 2017 Hoang Thu Thao and winner of The Voice Kids 2016 Trinh Nhat Minh.

World Kindness Day, initiated by Life Vest Inside (LVI), a New York-based non-profit organization, was celebrated in 100 cities across 40 countries on the same day. Every year, to kick off World Kindness Week, LVI organises “Dance for Kindness,” a WorldWide FreezeMob/FlashMob, showing that regardless of the differences in race, religion, ethnicity culture and background - the common thread that unites us all is kindness.

The event includes FreezeMobs and FlashMobs. Those participating in the FreezeMob are given a specific kindness position to freeze in and by so doing, giving passersby’s the unique opportunity to notice the kind moments that are in constant motion. In the FlashMob, many people break out in dance.

Besides the activities for the Dance for Kindness, participants in Hanoi also collaborated to clean up the environment and created paintings with the theme of kindness. The paintings were sold to raise funds for flood victims in the central region, according to Do Duc Duan, head of the organising board.

“This year we focused on the theme ‘Be kind to the health of yourself and other people’. Accordingly, we should take physical exercises and protect the environment.”
