Ten Second Effort for a KINDER WORLD

We're sharing the following Newsletter written by Stephen De Groot, founder of the amazing Getting to Better who we've featured as a See Beautiful project of the month. Stephen has coordinated the "10 Second Act of Kindness" wherein we're giving away an amazing loot of goodies for 10 seconds of your time to support our friend and kindness partner, Orly Wahba, founder of Life Vest Inside (another of our See Beautiful Non-Profits of the Month).

  1. MOM says she has seen the video of Orly. She loved it, of course. I was going to say it is aamazing how Kindness and Beautiful go hand in hand. But really of course they do. What is amazing is what happens because of Beautiful and Kindness.

  2. Thank you Lydia! YOU are BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for helping see more beautiful in the world and in the work that we do! - Steve

    Fantastic video by Orly and LVI! It is truly inspirational to know that there are people in the world like you, Orly, and Steve doing what you're doing. You all are true role models for us. Thanks for committing your life to helping people see the beauty and kindness in the world. I agree with Goose, "beauty" and "kindness" do seem interchangeable to me too. Good luck with TED Orly!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts & helping others see beautiful too!
