Those In Need brings a unique way of spreading awareness about Organ Donation
Now celebrating its seventh year, Dance for Kindness, set for Sunday, November 25th, is an annual worldwide Flash Mob kicking off World Kindness Week, organized by Those In Need and Life Vest Inside in New Delhi. Dance for Kindness is a celebration of the common thread that unites us all -- kindness!
Last year, event took place in over 120 cities, spanning across 50 countries with over 20,000 participants, watch this video to see what it was all about. This year, Those In Need’s impact will be even greater as they have partnered with ORGAN India (the Organ Receiving & Giving Awareness Network), an initiative of NGO Parashar Foundation, in order to create awareness around Organ Donation, myths and facts related to Organ Donation and the process to take pledge to be an organ donor. With an Organ Donation rate of less than 1 per million population, India’s Organ Donation rate is one of the lowest in the world. Thus, there is a dire need to initiate a discussion around the cause and increase the awareness among citizens about the current scenario of Organ Donation in India. This year 1000+ participants will be joining the event to raise awareness about Organ Donation in Delhi through Dance For Kindness.
Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh- India’s leading name in the healthcare industry has also joined hands with Those In Need to support them in their biggest worldwide flash mob. They believe in the special purpose of helping people lead a life with independence and dignity.

Saarthak Bakshi, co-founder of Those In Need who is a proud organ donor himself, shares, “There still lacks empathy and sensitization among the people of India for those who are ailing. It important for one and all to understand and value such priced possessions from god and for them to help those in need in whichever possible way they can. With this initiative, we want to bud a seed in the lives of many to support and aid that Organ Donation is the need of the hour for several ailing lives to grow and prosper.”
