When Orly Wahba performs her magic, she uses the words “please,” “thank you” and “you are wonderful.” She is a gifted magician in the field of kindness, and as the CEO and founder of the nonprofit Life Vest Inside, Wahba espouses the import of kindness in today’s society.
Before founding Life Vest Inside, Wahba was a middle school teacher who wanted to make a real difference in her students’ lives. With a simple stack of cards, Wahba started a wave of pay-it-forward kindness. Each card contained an act of kindness that once completed, would be passed onto another person. Her Act of Kindness Cards project blossomed, enhancing the lives of her students and raising their sense of self-worth exponentially as they saw their direct hand in causing a ripple effect of kindness.
