Japan Relief

American Red Cross


After being ridiculed online by millions of people for her awkward dancing in Rebecca Black's Friday music video, the last thing Benni wanted to do was dance in public.

But so many people were asking her to do her dance, that she decided it was time to use the unwanted attention for something positive. So she offered to dance, if they promised to donate money and help the victims of the recent earthquake in Japan. A deal was struck and in April 2011, Benni organized and led a small flashmob of kids and danced at the mall to benefit The American Red Cross.
