WHY KINDNESS

m_lvi-hr3
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.
With so many benefits, every act of kindness is a healthy one!

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Why we exist?
m_lvi-hr3 m_mission-philosophy
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.

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.
