Mumbai, November 22: CRY – Child Rights & You, a leading Indian non-profit organisation working for child rights, set up a new Guinness World Record, as they invited people from all walks of life to come and join in an activity to wear sock-puppets as a gesture of solidarity for children and their right to a happy childhood.
The Guinness World Record they went after was the most people wearing sock puppets in a single venue, set in 2016 by a community in Queensland, Australia. CRY.
The evening also saw breath-taking performances by rock band–Dharavi Rocks, a collective of slum kids who make music together using musical instruments created from junk like drums used to store water, cans, sticks, glass bottles, metal caps, etc.
The record-setting attempt was the centre-piece of CRY’s month long pan-India campaign, #YellowFellow, to celebrate Children’s Day. The campaign was aimed to build public awareness for children and their right to a happy childhood, through a series of fun-filled yet meaningful engagement activities where the people at large were encouraged to show their support for children by becoming Yellow Fellows.
The campaign also took to social media to reach out to people, to wear or use a pair of yellow socks in as unique, creative and quirky way as possible, post a photo of themselves on social media using the hashtag #YellowFellow and tag three or more friends to join the bandwagon of yellow fellows as well.
The campaign left its footprints across all Metro cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai, through a medley of exciting events ranging from buoyant flash mobs organised at leading shopping malls and fun events at college campuses and corporate houses, with celebrities and youth icons coming forward to pledge to make it a better world for children.
“In keeping with the mission of CRY, the idea of the event is to inspire people to take action for children. At the centre of this campaign is the colour yellow that signifies warmth and happiness. We hope that all children in India have the opportunity to experience this. Why socks? It brings forth alive the idea of ‘standing up for children’ in a very literal way,” states Kreeanne Rabadi, Regional Director, CRY-West
