It’s Random Acts of Kindness Week!
Random Acts of Kindness Week was started by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. Established in 1995, the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation (RAK) is an internationally recognized nonprofit in Denver, CO, that’s dedicated to inspiring people to practice kindness and pass it on to others. The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation provides free online resources to encourage acts of kindness across the globe, specifically in school communities during every week of the year!
Their immediate call for action during this week of kindness is solely for us all to attempt a random act of kindness. That’s it! That’s the entire message. Random Acts of Kindness has created unique and fun opportunities for every type of organization, group, team, family, or individual to become involved in one of the globe’s most generous weeks—where the goal is not a transfer of money, but rather, physical exchange of kindness.
So whether you help someone cross the street, shovel someone’s driveway or just smiling at one extra person today, we’d love to hear your stories about Random Acts of Kindness in your life! Share your #RAK stories with us!
