Compassionate St. Augustine Hires Mindful Solutions to Grow Their Marketing and Fundraising Efforts

To support its initiatives and foster a more compassionate community, Compassionate St. Augustine, has aligned with Mindful Solutions to expand its marketing and fundraising operation.

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL, USA, September 21, 2023 / — Compassionate St. Augustine (CSA), whose mission is to influence and grow a culture of compassion through advocacy, awareness, and action, is excited to announce its new strategic partnership with Mindful Solutions. Through this alliance, the organization now has the expanded marketing infrastructure it needs to not only foster a more compassionate St. Augustine, but to become the model for other compassionate cities, counties, and countries.

“On September 9, 2023, we celebrated CSA’s 10th anniversary, and we are excited to lay the groundwork for the next decade,” said CSA Board President, Sultana Rahim-Barakzoy. “To help us kick off this annual fundraising campaign and position our organization for growth,” we have teamed with Mindful Solutions, a St. Augustine marketing firm that not only aligns with our vision but has the marketing capabilities and compassion to take the organization to the next level.”

CSA’s key initiatives which are focused on turning empathy into action include:

Gift Gardens – Compassionate St. Augustine currently has four gift gardens; and plans to continue growing this initiative. The gardens are maintained by both youth and adult volunteers, and the proceeds which are distributed by our partner, EPIC-CURE go to combat food insecurity within the community.

Compassionate Women – Fosters inclusivity and compassion amongst women of all ethnicities and backgrounds. A key focus area is supporting the children and adult residents of West Augustine through actively addressing the community’s needs.

Compassionate Youth – An interfaith youth group that builds unity, inspires change, and fosters leadership skills. They are volunteer-focused and provide mentorship to both high school and college students.

Good Trouble – An advocacy group that builds coalitions with local leaders, organizations, politicians, and more to initiate change through mobilization at a grassroots level. Action areas include affordable housing, the homelessness crisis, and protecting the environment.

New Initiative Coming Soon – The Purple Bench – Advocating for compassion from the local business community. This initiative will recognize businesses that exhibit CSA’s core values of empathy, advocacy, social responsibility, sustainability, and collaboration.
