In addition, cards were distributed to those watching.
The cards suggested small acts of kindness that may be easily performed.
“We distributed 25 different cards,” Lawton said. “I should have brought more. We gave them all out. They said things like, ‘call a sick person,’ ‘help a sibling with homework,’ ‘give up your seat on the bus to someone who needs it,’ ‘invite someone to dinner you don’t usually interact with,’ ‘be nice to yourself’ — that sort of thing.”
The Milford flashmob was recorded, and Lawton said they will submit the dance to Life Vest Inside as part of the worldwide montage.
“I have already seen Croatia’s dance,” Lawton said. “I can’t wait to upload ours.”
