Who we are

A.A.O.K. (Amazing Acts of Kindness) started in 2012. A group of our friends decided it would be fun to bring Christmas to a few families in need that year.  It resulted in 9 families being surprised and having a Christmas like they had never had before. Instead of being at home, we spent the entire day on Christmas Eve driving all over Las Vegas being welcomed into strangers homes, hearing their stories and bringing an unbelievable amount of joy to their children.  Some parents laughed while others cried – and something inside of us changed forever.

Community Outreach

We have several Community Partners that consist of schools, children’s hospitals and non-profit organizations who reccomend families in need to A.A.O.K.

Family Nominations

Our Community Partners identify the most needy families in the community and send us information on their family history, why they’re in need, and what they want for Christmas.

03

Sponsorship Program

Generous members of the community who want to sponsor a family for Christmas apply to do so on our website.

04

Match Families With Sponsors

Once a sponsor is approved, we match them with a family in need, based off certain criteria.

Watch Miracles Happen

On Christmas Eve more than 100 strangers delivery presents to 100 families they’ve never met before.  It’s truly life changing.
