Our Mission


To empower, educate and unite the world with KINDNESS.

Life Vest Inside is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that inspires, empowers and educates people of all backgrounds to lead a life of kindness. We equip people worldwide with the necessary tools to recognize their potential and build self-esteem so that they can become a catalyst for positive change in the world.

We set out to effect global change and reignite human connection through inspirational media, technology, education, and on the ground social engagement.


Our Philosophy

Why we exist?


While many organizations are established to tackle social issues including bullying, substance abuse, depression, crime, Life Vest Inside takes a proactive approach and prevents those issues from materializing. Through research and analysis, LVI understands that a lack of self value is the core root to a vast array of social issues plaguing society. At LVI, we help to build self-esteem in the belief that once people see the value within themselves, they will begin to see that value in others. This behavior becomes self-perpetuating, and spurs an “upward spiral” of kindness.


Why Unkindness Exists?



There are an endless combination of reasons why unkindness exists and it varies for every person. Whether it be loneliness, unemployment, lack of education, health issues, distrust, trauma, hardship, no support system, bad experience and so much more. Life Vest Inside is working tirelessly to create innovative and exciting solutions that will act to prevent these things from coming into play. We are aimed at increasing kindness and empowering people from the inside out.


Why Kindness?


Kindness is a universal language that transcends race, religion, ethnicity and nationality. Life Vest Inside is committed to spreading the message of kindness in the hearts and minds of the global community; inviting them to see just how fun, easy and accessible kindness truly is.


Our Beginnings


In 2010, Life Vest Inside Founder, Orly Wahba set out to create a film, Kindness Boomerang, about the power of spreading kindness, the power each of us has to make a difference.

One script, one day of filming.
