With a deep respect for understanding the local culture and its valued traditions, LG in Vietnam partnered with Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Vietnam in 2020 to establish its ongoing Life’s Good: Hope Village project in the county and bring long-overdue positive change to its incredible Muong population.

Native to northern Vietnam, the Muong people are one of the country’s most disadvantaged ethnic minorities who live in seriously underdeveloped housing while being held back by poor infrastructure. So, by promoting economic development as well as equality in home ownership for Muong households, LG is taking what it deems the most effective approach to nurturing these people in desperate need while laying a sustainable foundation for future generations.

It all started in 2020 in the highlands of Quyet Thang – located in the Lac Son district of Hoa Binh province – and by the end of 2021, LG can confirm that more than 11,000 people residing here have received support in the form of housing upgrades, household appliance donations or training on the topics of gender equality and financial management.

Continuing in 2022, the project will focus on improving local facilities such as building new community toilets, repairing houses and donating books to the local library. Training sessions are also being organized to educate on natural disaster responses for nearly 16,500 residents. This project hopes to support the construction of new houses and toilets for more than 20 households living in extremely difficult circumstances.

At the project’s opening ceremony, LG announced the first round of donated household appliances including washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners worth a total of approximately USD 13,000. The representatives of local authorities, LG and HFH Vietnam in attendance also paid a visit to Muong houses to get a better idea of their living conditions and learn how the project would improve their daily lives.

“All thanks to LG and Habitat for Humanity, after all these years, my dream of living in a house I can feel safe in is finally coming true,” said Bui Thi Luc, a 57-year-old Muong resident whose home is being rebuilt through the Hope Village project.

For 26 years and counting, LG Vietnam has put great importance on social contribution activities that inspire sustainable growth in the region. And with its unwavering belief that everyone deserves to feel that ‘Life’s Good,’ LG will continue to support initiatives designed to improve not only the lives of Vietnamese people, but everyone around the world, from all walks of life.

      Unveiled globally as a pivotal step in LG’s brand reinvention, the ‘Life’s Good with Optimism’ campaign is a vibrant celebration of a rejuvenated brand persona. Presenting a more dynamic and youthful brand identity, it encourages customers to approach life with optimism amid global uncertainty. LG has passionately aspired to share the revitalised brand philosophy and personify the essence of Life’s Good, while empowering people to find positivity in their everyday lives.
      Following the

The company showcased how the recognisable Life’s Good slogan, first coined in Australia in 1999 as a reflection of the Aussie zest for life, inspires the next generation to embrace life with bravery.
      LG collaborated with campaign ambassador and renowned musician turned athlete , whose journey embodies the characteristics of brave optimism, overcoming challenges and defying expectations. Ahead of the celebrations, Cody Simpson spoke with Channel 7 Sunrise and News Corporation about the campaign and his story of being an ambassador and approaching life with positivity, in a bid to carve his own path. Sunrise ran a week-long LG product giveaway with the LG StanbyME, LG TONE earbuds and LG gram – innovations that align with the wants and needs of young Australians.

      Prior to his interview, Cody participated in an inspiring panel discussion at the Life’s Good with Optimism celebratory, hosted at LG’s new Australian office. Livestreamed from his training pool on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, Cody was joined by author and artist Emma Carey and LG Australia Marketing Director, Gemma Lemieux, for a discussion about optimism and positivity, facilitated by Australian media personality and Sunrise consumer correspondent Shaun White.

      Discussing what is behind the campaign in Australia with Gemma Lemieux, Cody and Emma shared pivotal moments where embracing optimism set them on a path to lead better lives. Media, influencers and LG Australia employees around the country listened to the panel both in person and virtually, where Cody shared more about his late-in-life career change, while Emma talked about her journey of learning to walk again after falling 14,000 feet (about half the height of Mount Everest) in a skydiving accident.
      Meanwhile, a Life’s Good reporter circled the local Parramatta area and the LG office interviewing consumers and employees on camera to better understand and uncover what locally are the sources of happiness and optimism for the future.

      The Life’s Good with Optimism campaign was not complete without celebrating LG Australia’s employees. Upon arrival to the office, each staff member was greeted with a heart-shaped cookie and at their desk, a red candy apple awaited featuring an optimism affirmation and a red heart-shaped balloon.

      In a bid to reiterate the brand-love employees have for LG, they were invited to complete the ‘Optimism Tour’, taking part in a series of activities for their chance to win prizes. From playing giant jenga and shooting a hole-in-one at mini putt-putt to capturing a photo for the ‘Life’s Good Mosaic Mural’ and taking on a colleague in a game of ping-pong, employees had the chance to let their hair down and truly experience Life’s Good.

      LG’s Life’s Good with Optimism campaign activation reflected the company’s commitment to positivity, inspiring individuals in Australia and around the world, and creating meaningful influence in challenging times.

      From horses and carriages to cars, airplanes, and now drones and hyperloops, innovations in transportation have consistently reshaped human life, making it easier for people to live life on the go. Meanwhile, the rise of OTT platforms has given people the freedom to watch their favorite content at their convenience, anytime and anywhere. However, limitations persisted in terms of screen devices that wouldn’t allow content to be consumed wherever one may desire, until the debut of the LG StanbyME and LG StanbyME Go.
      The StanbyME lineup began with an experimental question posed by a designer at LG’s HE Design Lab: “What if my TV could move to wherever I am, whenever I want to watch it?” This was the moment of curiosity that sparked innovation, transforming and reimagining the TV experience.
      From the outset, the designs of the two Lifestyle Screens had to be different, as the LG HE Design Lab team was given the challenge to conceptualize a screen that could be ‘on the go.’ Deviating from the traditional TV design, the team created a product with no complex components visible on the back, featuring a simple frame and minimalist edge stand to maximize space utilization and deliver flexibility that blends into any composition.

      With the appearance and functionality of a carry bag, the StanbyME Go is purposefully designed to withstand shock, vibration and chemical reactions, providing unparalleled portability and durability. For a heightened experience with better interaction, the display movement intends to closely match the user’s posture.

      Traditionally, portability has not been closely associated with TV products, but LG sought to pioneer versatile lifestyle screens that expand the role of TVs far beyond image broadcasting. The StanbyME and StanbyME Go are companions for everyday life; they can transform into recipe books when cooking in the kitchen, sheet music when playing the piano, and small outdoor movie theaters when camping, reimagining the way users engage with TVs.
      When selecting which TV to purchase, the foremost consideration should be how well it fits into your space. With the ability to easily change their location, the StanbyME and StanbyME Go stand out as exceptional choices to set the ideal mood in any space.

      Unlocking new possibilities for creating unique mood and experiences, the StanbyME and StanbyME Go offer portability that allows users to carry or position them wherever they desire. Enjoy a movie night in your cozy bedroom, soft music on the terrace of your home café, a workout in your home gym or a celebration message in a party room. With unbounded imagination, the possibilities are endless.

      However, why limit your TV experience to the indoors? The StanbyME Go has created new on-the-go entertainment opportunities for outdoor use with its great portability and versatility. The StanbyME Go can serve as a digital campfire for relaxed downtime or transform into a lively board game hub during family road trips. Featuring a turntable skin that enables users to immerse themselves in music and create a relaxing mood on the beach, this all-round lifestyle screen ensures hours of enjoyable entertainment for all.
