Tour Sponsors

Let’s start with some GRATITUDE! This tour would not be possible without the support of our sponsors who are true partners in kindness! They believe as deeply as we do in the importance of building a kinder, happier more unified world and we’re psyched to have them on board!

About the Tour

To celebrate the launch of my new book, Kindness Boomerang, I am super pumped to be heading out on the #KindnessBoomerang tour, a six week cross country tour around the USA spreading kindness and creating positive dialogue around increasing kindness perception in the US. I’ll be giving talks in schools, companies, community centers, hosting book signings, engaging with other thought leaders and running volunteer activities to activate communities around the US to begin making a change in their own community. In addition I’ll be interviewing loads of people throughout the journey and inviting members of each of the communities I visit to engage with me personally in some of my favorite hobbies and activities; after all this tour is all about promoting positive social bonding, creating friendships and engaging in real human connection.

Joining me for the journey will be Julia Westlin and David Meshow, two amazing YouTubers who will be adding a cool musical component to the tour by performing in each of the tour cities. Get ready to fall in love with them!Learn More about Julia and David.

You can help me travel across the US by joining in on one of my adventures in your own city, booking me for a talk in your school or place of work, or by simply contributing what you can and take part in fueling kindness forward. Plus, track me as I move from city to city, tune in to my weekly live streams!

What I'll be doing on the tour

An extension of my initial journey into the wonderful world of kindness, this listening and sharing tour will not only serve to continue spreading awareness about the power of kindness, but it will also bring to light ways in which we aim to increase kindness perception within the US over the course of the next ten years. My goal is to use this tour as a means to spark conversation and positive dialogue with people of all backgrounds around the importance of kindness and how together we can make the US a kinder place to live and from there the world at large. I’ll be using my book, Kindness Boomerang, to inspire, empower and equip those I meet along the journey with tools to make a change in their own life and within their community. Here are some cool things you can do to take part in the tour itself!

Talks:

With a focus on schools and Universities, I will be giving talks in each city and distributing copies of Kindness Boomerang, as a practical guide to begin creating a lasting impact. In addition, Kindness Curriculum (K-5) will be gifted to each school.

Book Signings:

Bring me to your local shop for a signing or perhaps host a signing in your home!

Volunteer Activities:

Community members will be invited and encouraged to join me in local community based volunteer activities showing the importance of giving back within our own community. From Kindness Scavenger Hunts, to volunteering at soup kitchens, to playing bingo in nursing homes, to getting decked out in fun costumes and giving out free gifts and toys in hospitals, to giving out free hugs on the streets, to giving out free cups of coffee, to creating awesome chalk walks in your neighborhood, to giving meals to the homeless, to serenading strangers with some inspirational tunes, to throwing puppet shows for kids in local parks, to breaking out into FlashMobs on your city streets, the list is endless!

Have an idea? I’d love to hear it! I’m totally open for suggestions! Email me at orly@lifevestinside.com

Community Activities:

Meet up with me in your city and join in on some of my favorite hobbies - I have LOADS of them and I always love picking up new ones! This also ensures that I practice a bit of self-care by doing some of the basic things that just make me happy! From playing sports (basketball, softball, tennis, ping pong, ice skating, rollerblading), to starting a jam session (yes, I am a drummer!), to yoga, to movies or plays, to amusement parks, laser tag, karaoke, etc... Let’s have some fun!

Live Streams + Videos:

Follow the Kindness Caravan across the USA! Check out my YouTubeLIVE, Facebook LIVE, and InstaLIVE streams every week! I’ll be giving away awesome Kindness Packages and gifts throughout the tour and challenging you guys to record your own #KindnessBoomerang videos! More details to come!

Sound of Kindness Festival:

A community wide fun filled event where our tour musicians and local musicians will be invited to perform kindness themed songs. The event will also be used as a platform to acknowledge local kindness heroes making a difference in their own unique way. In addition we will have Student Rep Presentations, fun group games and an exciting opportunity to take part in creating an art installment for the community.

Where the funds are going?

Traveling across the US is no simple thing and can be costly. Through the Crowdfunding Campaign we aim to raise $50,000 dollars and we need your help to make it happen! After all, every dollar counts!

Our goal is to engage in kindness activities at every single location! As you’ll see from the perks when you contribute you determine the acts of kindness we’ll be able to engage in within each city! From treating people to cups of coffee, to buying toys to give out at a children’s hospital, to gifting bouquets of flowers to senior citizens in an old age home, the list goes on and on!

We’ll all be flying into Seattle, hoping in a van and driving from the west coast all the way back to the east coast! Transportation includes everything from airfare, gas and our kindness caravan.

This includes expenses for hotels and/or airbnb throughout the journey.

We would like to GIVE 50 books away at each destination.

Cause we gotta have fuel in our tanks to keep on keeping on!

In an effort to create greater, long lasting impact we will be producing a documentary chronicling the journey and sharing the stories of those meet throughout the tour. In addition we will be releasing weekly video productions.

Any additional funds we raise, go directly to Life Vest Inside, the non profit responsible for making this entire journey possible! Life Vest Inside is a 501c3 non profit on a mission to inspire, empower and educate people of all backgrounds to lead a life of kindness.
