What is A.A.O.K.?

A.A.O.K. (Amazing Acts of Kindness) is a local organization based out of Las Vegas whose mission is to bring Christmas to families in need every year.  We partner up with local churches, schools, hospitals and nonprofits to identify the families in our community that are most in need.  From there, we raise awareness and find volunteers to “sponsor” these families.  During the process, our sponsors purchase gifts and deliver a Christmas to the family that they otherwise may not have had.

A.A.O.K. is not a registered non-profit with the state of Nevada.  It is merely an organization run by a group of friends who, with the help of complete strangers, have been encouraging amazing acts of kindness throughout Las Vegas since 2012.

How Our Process Works

01

Community Partnerships

Every year we partner with local schools, children’s hospitals and non-profits that we trust to identify the families in our community that are most in need.  Any family being sponsored through our program is nominated to us by one of our community partners.

02

Family Nominations

After our community partners identify the most needy families in the community, they send us a packet of information on each family’s history, why they’re in need and a list of what they want for Christmas.

03

Sponsors Sign Up

Generous members of the community who want to sponsor a family for Christmas apply to do so on our website.  A sponsor could be an individual, a family, a group of coworkers or groups of friends!  Parents love getting their kids involved and teaching their kids about the gift of giving.

04

Pairing Families + Sponsors

Once a sponsor signs up and is approved, we match them with a family in need based off their requests and other criteria.

05

Amazing Acts of Kindness!

On Christmas Eve hundreds of volunteers deliver presents to hundreds of families they’ve never met before.  On average, we service 100+ families and touch the lives of over 325 children under the age of 18 every single year! It’s simply amazing.

How can I get involved?

There are three primary ways you can get involved to help us achieve our goal of bringing Christmas to over 100 families this year.  You can make a donation to support the organization, sponsor a family or volunteer your time!  More information below.
