The Sweet Side of Kindness

When Karina heard Orly speak about her own life struggles, and Life Vest Inside, it resonated with her heart. She signed up and committed to buying someone a meal but what resulted was sweeter than she ever expected.

Karina learned about Life Vest Inside while listening to inspirational podcasts to help boost her morale as she faced the challenge of building her business, healing from surgery and caring for her elderly father during his own recovery.

Hearing Orly speak about her own life struggles, and Life Vest Inside resonated with her heart. Karina signed up and committed to buying someone a meal as her kindness pledge. Later when Karina found a crisp twenty dollar bill she says it was, “As if the universe was telling me, ‘Here don’t worry I will provide so you can be kind!’”

Karina was confident she had found the right person when she met a homeless man and his dog. Not wanting to cry and embarrass him, with a slight nod she handed him the folded bill. As he walked away, he realized what it was and the look on his face was the perfect reward. Pained by the necessity that made him grateful Karina said a prayer that this small act would renew his faith that life can be kind.

After all, she shared with us that shortly after her experience, she won a pie from her favorite bake shop. A lesson that sharing kindness can result in receiving your favorite desserts.
