Every year, the Dance for Kindness brings the community together on World Kindness Day to get moving, flash-mob style, with the goal of raising awareness and uniting the globe as the dance is performed worldwide. This year, the Kind Sby group is making the event even bigger and better.
Kindness Palooza, an event that will surround the annual Dance for Kindness, will be held at the Riverwalk Amphitheater in downtown Salisbury on Sunday, Nov. 13 from 1 to 4 p.m. Community organizations will have tables of information about their services and offerings, as well as activities, games, prizes and giveaways that all relate to kindness. The event will also feature live musical performances.
“We have been participating in the Dance for Kindness since 2016, and it has always been so successful that we decided this would be the year to invite our local businesses and nonprofits to show the ways they are working for kindness,” said Grace Murdock, Salisbury’s official Secretary of Kindness. “Salisbury was the country’s first World Kindness USA City, and we want to continue finding new ways to make positive connections and inspire everyone toward goodwill and acts of kindness.”
Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation to the Maryland Food Bank, Beyond Your Walls mobile shower or Community Emergency Shelter program. All are welcome. To learn the Dance for Kindness, register at danceforkindness.com.
