RAK Week

valentine_l.jpg

This month may be all about carnations, candy and crushes–but how about some kindness?

Established in 1995, The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is a nonprofit organization that inspires people to practice kindness and to pass it on to others.

Which is (you guessed it) where you come in: From February 10-16, the organization is celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Week. Want to step out of your comfort zone and attempt a few random acts of kindness?

We’ve got a few ideas for you:

1. Open the door for someone

2. Cook dinner for your family

3. Smile at one new person a day

4. Eat lunch with someone new

5. Thank your bus driver

6. Organize a custodian appreciation day by writing thank you letters and signs

7. Give someone a compliment

8. Donate old towels or blankets to an animal shelter

9. Walk your neighbor’s dog

10. Shovel a neighbor’s driveway or sidewalk

11. Write a positive tweet/comment/blog post online

12.  Surprise a neighbor with a basket of baked goods

13. Give a friend a hug

14. Send your parents a sweet text

15. Buy someone a coffee

No act of kindness is too small or goes unappreciated. YOU make the difference.

If you participate in Random Acts of Kindness Week this year, use #RAKweek to tag your social posts and share your good deeds with us — and the world!
