If you could take 30 seconds to change the world, would you do it?


We have launched a social awareness campaign, “Be Nice, Do Nice Challenge” tied to our flagship apparel dedicated to inspiring, motivating and empowering people to Be Nice and Do Nice. After reaching the original goal of 1,000 acts of Nice in just one month, we have decided to aim even higher, hoping to inspire 100,000 acts of Nice!

Each piece of apparel has a custom act of Nice attached to it. Every purchase is a commitment to accept your Nice challenge! Complete your Nice act or one of the many options below and help us change our world, 30 seconds at a time. 

Next, share and submit your act of Nice by following @LiveLifeNice and tagging #livelifeNice to their post. Each post will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a Live Life Nice prize each month!

  • - Mentor a student with disabilities
    - Partner with an underperforming school district and inspire students to graduate from high school

    The list is endless when thinking about living life nice and giving back to students. I am a Supervisor of Special Education for a school district close to Philly. We have an amazingly talented and diverse student body, mostly comprised of students who fall into the lower socioeconomic category. We (the administrative team) are working diligently to change the negative culture associated with our students and schools. I’m looking to create “moments” for our students to motivate and reward them. I believe building a partnership together would be immensely beneficial for your foundation and for the students in the district where I work.

    Thank you for your time!!

  • The list I just read, – Kind Ideas; that is my life. I’m 62 and can account for 99% of doing, being all of those things. I can honestly say, throughout my life, it has been rare that I found someone soulmateish, someone who understood why I chose kindness over aggression, or attitude. I have been fortunate to find a handful, including two husbands, three children, and their spouses and three grandchildren. We are close and kind people. :) But I would very much like to be a part of something that shows ‘proudness’ and courage to challenge all that are listening with this movement. What, when,where, can I get involved? thank you in advance. Have a great day, and if you celebrate, merry christmas. :)
