Author Henry James said, “Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.” The world needs more kindness, and Orly Wahba, Founder/CEO of Life Vest Inside, a non-profit in NY, is on a mission to Empower and Unite the world with Kindness. Orly is an educator, entrepreneur, and community activist passionate about inspiring people to be the best that they can be. Life Vest Inside inspires people to recognize their potential to affect real change in the world through kindness. Orly began her career as an educator at the Yeshivah of Flatbush in Brooklyn, NY, teaching kids to embrace unity, build their self-esteem, and use their power to influence the world for good. She is often quoted as saying, “Kindness, don’t just do it…LIVE IT!” Yearning to make a larger impact with her philanthropic work, and after being inspired by a Life Vest Inside sign on a plane, Orly founded Life Vest Inside in 2011, with a mission to encourage people to embrace the incredible power of giving and recognize that in times of hardship, kindness, like a life vest, keeps the world afloat. LVI shot to national attention when Orly’s film Kindness Boomerang went viral, with more than 20 million views and coverage in media outlets such as CBS News. Children raised to understand the value of kindness are less likely to bully and more likely to stand up for others. And, the act of being kind increases energy, optimism and happiness – providing an overall improvement in well being.
