"Conscious Acts Of Kindness is
passion in action & in perfect
alignment with our core values."
- Whole Foods Market
The mission of our 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is to empower and inspire people and their communities. Through Conscious Acts of Kindness®, we spotlight global issues, raise awareness, and unify the voices of our planet.
Conscious Acts of Kindness was founded in 2011 by Joaquin Ortiz. He wanted to establish a nonprofit foundation that focused on global issues and hosted events that raised awareness for the underprivileged and those in need. The Conscious Acts of Kindness movement started with small offerings such as bringing hardworking Miami Beach construction workers bottles of water and sports drinks; as well as paying for parking time at meters with handfuls of quarters. Slowly as the movement grew, Conscious Acts of Kindness teams were organized in several cities across the United States such as: Portland, Los Angeles, and New York. There was one simple mission everyone followed, perform a conscious act of kindness that makes the world a better place.
As the idea of "conscious acts of kindness" began to develop, Joaquin noticed the contagious effect it had on those around him. He has since taken the appropriate steps to transform his idea of consciously helping others into a global nonprofit foundation. After becoming a 501(c)3 nonprofit foundation, Conscious Acts Of Kindness® were organized and coordinated both locally and abroad.
Domestically, Conscious Acts of Kindness® has handed out 1,000 roses labeled "You Are Loved" to senior citizens for Valentine's Day, Surprised a 14-year-old boy fighting cancer with a limo ride and courtside seats to a Miami Heat Game, as well as having helped beached baby pilot whales at the Marine Mammal Conservatory. Overseas, CAOK events include: feeding an entire village in Bali Indonesia, giving out 500 kites to children in Pushkar India, and bringing a bounce house castle to children in Senegal West Africa.
