Last summer, in conjunction with Marimekko North America, EQ3 Marimekko shop-in-shops took part in the World Karma Project’s “1000 Acts of Kindness” campaign. Each shop in shop featured a temporary art installation of 108 origami cranes, and customers were encouraged to write an act of kindness on a crane, and then to go out and do that act within 48 hours.
This weekend, the 1000 Acts of Kindness Origami Installation will be in London, UK for the Southbank Centre Festival of Love. Over 8 million people are expected to attend the event, and World Karma Project is inviting people from across the globe to join them on Twitter for a Kindness Bomb Flashmob!
On Saturday, June 28 @WorldKarmaProj will send out 3 Tweets and a Facebook update: “Unleash #KindnessBomb #1000actsofkindness.” In true flashmob fashion, World Karma Project is encouraging everyone to complete each of their 3 kindness acts within 15 minutes of the #KindnessBomb Tweets.
Of course, no good deed goes to waste, so you may complete your 3 acts of kindness anytime throughout Saturday’s event!
Help start the kindness ripple effect:
- Take photographs and feed Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #KindnessBomb #1000actsofkindness
- Engage across muliple platforms (Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr and Twitter)
- And, of course, if you’re lucky enough to be in London, UK this Saturday, stop by the South Bank Centre Festival of Love to see the 1000 Acts of Kindnress Art Installation, and to take part in the live launch of the Kindness Bomb!
