Our Mission

Our mission is to spread kindness around the world through storytelling, and to train people to cultivate kindness and compassion through meditation.

In addition to our educational initiatives, Support Kindness aims to provide humanitarian aid worldwide in the form of direct financial assistance to individuals, families, refugees, disabled people, underprivileged children, victims of domestic violence, people who are homeless, and communities in need or facing a crisis. Our aim is to help alleviate suffering and maintain human dignity.  We believe that if kindness is globally accepted and applied, everyone will benefit.

Headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, Support Kindness is a 501(c)(3) educational and humanitarian nonprofit organization established in June 2021.

The Reason We Exist:

“The vast array of problems and conflicts that we encounter on earth is the result of human preoccupation with self-interest. The reason Support Kindness exists is to train and inspire people to consistently extend their interest beyond self.”

—Dr. Zeal Okogeri
Founder, Support Kindness, Inc.

Our Vision

We seek a world where people would accept each other as they are, respect, and cherish the sacredness of all life, and treat every being with kindness, compassion, and dignity.

“When we practice loving kindness and compassion,
we are the first ones to profit.”
—Rumi

Our Essence

What makes Support Kindness truly unique is that we not only provide a platform to cultivate love, kindness, and compassion but we also provide a means to give and demonstrate love, kindness, and compassion through our humanitarian initiatives.

Love requires demonstration. The more love you give, the more you receive. It’s a natural circle of reciprocity. This giving should include yourself, all the wonderful people in your life, strangers, animals, plants, and our environment. To experience the tremendous power of love, we must find ways to give back to life.

…Zeal practices and teaches the Light and Sound Current meditation; and inspires awareness through his gift of compassionate storytelling. In addition to leading ongoing classes on storytelling and meditation, Zeal also leads meditation retreats to Tibet, Nepal, and India when conditions permit.

Zeal earned his Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine degree from the Southern California University of Health Sciences in Whittier, California. As a clinician, Zeal provided natural health care for patients from all cultural backgrounds and walks of life, including active-duty military personnel and veterans.

He was a faculty member at the University of Hawaii, Manoa-Honolulu, where he taught a graduate course in Clinical Finance and Economics.

In his youth, Zeal survived a brutal civil war that claimed more than two million civilian lives by starvation. He was a refugee for three years and endured much suffering. Having undergone the traumatic stress and hardship of being a refugee, he sympathizes with others who are currently in the same position. He learned to appreciate the value of humanitarian work at a young age, for he was a beneficiary of food relief provided by the Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations during the Biafra-Nigerian civil war.

Zeal is the author of three books on personal growth and spirituality, including his most recent book, You Can Never Go Wrong By Being Kind — an anthology on the transformative potential of kindness and compassion.

Zeal was born in Afikpo village, Southeastern Nigeria, and has lived on the beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii for more than 15 years.

Zeal’s mission is to fill the human heart with love, kindness, and compassion; and to promote peace on earth.
