“The common thread that ties us all together is kindness,” says Life Vest Inside founder Orly Wahba. Life Vest Inside is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the masses to engage in acts of love and kindness. They believe that kindness is directly linked to happiness and health, and their missions is to empower and unite the world with just that. Life Vest Inside inspires people to recognize the potential they have to affect real and positive change in this world through kindness.
For the past four years, Life Vest Inside has organized a worldwide flashmob event, known as the Dance For Kindness. Imagine a groups from all over the globe joining together to perform the same dance to the same song together on the same day. Last year, the event drew participation from over 10,000 dancers in 80 cities across 32 countries! This year on November 8th will be no different.
Life Vest Inside has given artists and songwriters from every corner of the world the opportunity to submit a song that could be chosen as the Dance For Kindness Anthem! When they reached out to us to invite our community of TuneCore Artists to submit, we couldn’t resist. There’s no purchase required and TuneCore is not an official partner, we just want to offer our Artists a chance to get heard for a great cause!
“Music has the most amazing power to uplift, unite and inspire,” Wahba says, “This year’s Dance For Kindness Anthem Contest will give musicians from all over the chance to be a part of that by having their song selected for the worldwide anthem.”
