The LivRed Foundation
The LivRed Foundation is a nonprofit organization based upon an essential theory: “A kinder world is not only possible but vital.” Kindness, compassion, and empathy for others are crucial to solving our biggest challenges and our foundation is committed to making the world a better place.
In May of 2018, 20-year-old, Olivia (Liv) Red was giving a friend a ride home from work when her vehicle was struck head-on by a truck traveling in the wrong direction. She was killed instantly. The blood alcohol level of the truck driver exceeded three times the legal limit.
Liv would “light up the room” the moment she walked in. Her glow put the sun to shame. She was the first one to lift you up and she would be the first one to make you smile when you were down. She was a champion of the underdog, she was good to people, funny, loyal and more than anything… she was kind.
" When you were born, you cried & the world rejoiced.
Live your life in such a way that when you die,
the world cries & you rejoice. "
The mission of the LivRed Foundation is to educate, inspire, and encourage people to choose kindness, to exercise compassion and bring out the best in humanity.
The LivRed Foundation will strive to make kindness effortless and have selfless acts be natural and habitual. Through our many endeavors to raise awareness about the perils of drugs and alcohol, provide opportunities for community service, and most importantly, to recognize and reward with a scholarship, outstanding individuals who embody kindness, empathy, and service, we will keep Liv’s belief in the goodness of humanity alive. The LivRed Foundation is a small, but powerful team making strides towards building a kinder, better world.
The LivRed Foundation seeks to move the human spirit and restore faith in humanity by raising awareness and encouraging others to perform random acts of kindness in Liv’s memory. That is who she was and what she lived for-to spread joy and make other’s smile.
Our vision and the values described below are those values that Liv embodied every day of her life and our hope is that others will aspire to “LivRed.”
Love and respond to others with compassion and empathy
Inspire others to be kind, uplifting, and selfless
Volunteer giving back to your community and helping those in need
Random acts of kindness are habitual and selflessly performed
Encourage and excite others to “pay it forward”
Demonstrate respect for all of humanity no matter their differences
