See Beautiful is thrilled to name (drum roll, please!) Life Vest Inside as our March Non-Profit of the month!

When it comes to seeing beautiful, one of the most wonderful parts of what we get to do is raise awareness for, and donate to, wonderful non-profit organizations. March's non-profit of the month, Life Vest Inside, leaves us completely inspired. We are honored and humbled to sponsor Life Vest Inside and share information about the wonderful work with which they are engaged. We have no doubt their work will leave you moved as well!

Upon finding our virtual flotation device, Life Vest Inside,  we were floating! Inspired by their kindness and the kindness Life Vest Inside shares for others, connecting with founder Orly Wahba is nothing short of empowering! You see, Orly is at heart an educator. She understands the inherent need to spread kindness to inspire, engage, educate and connect children and adults alike. Life Vest Inside offers us all an opportunity to rise up with kindness, while also mapping out a kindness curriculum to support children's understanding and implementation of kindness as social activist in society.

Why Life Vest Inside?
Our "why" is three-fold: Their (1) mission, (2) vision, and (3) foundational premise highlight the total awesomeness and beauty of this organization!

Life Vest Inside's Mission is to "create an exciting and accessible kindness experience, to become more aware of the opportunities that surround us and recognize our potential to change the world, simply by changing ourselves."

Life Vest Inside's Vision states: "By living kindly and believing in the inherent good of each individual, change is POSSIBLE!" (Oh, we're seeing lots of beautiful now!)

Life Vest Inside's Foundation is built upon the understanding that "Charity work and community service are invaluable tools for bettering our world, but kindness is more than good deeds or volunteerism alone. Kindness is empathy, compassion, and human connection; it's a smile, a touch, or a comforting word. Even the smallest gesture can brighten a dark day or ease a heavy burden.

Life Vest Inside works to cultivate the awareness that individuals can effect real and positive change in the people around them, simply by 'living kindness:' by embodying empathy and compassion in our day-to-day lives.


How does Life Vest Inside see & spread beautiful?
