With everything bad that’s been going on in America and the world lately, I thought it was high time to start something good. Cue RAKtivism. I know. Big word. Let’s say it together. RAK-tiv-ism. There we go!
RAK stands for Random Acts of Kindness. It’s something you don’t plan, just stepping out of your way to do something good for someone you see in your day. It’s defined as a “selfless act performed by kind people to either help or cheer up a random stranger, for no reason other than to make people happier.” It doesn’t have to be big, but don’t feel limited either! (There is an organization that will actually help to fund expensive RAKs! Check it out here.)
More than just me doing it, I was wondering if you would like to join me. One person can make a difference. Two people can make a bigger difference. A whole host of people can make a huge difference. For the month of September (Sundays excluded for good behavior and a change to breath from all the posting 😉 ), would you join me in doing at least one RAK a day, posting about it, and encourage your readers to join in as well?
If you’re interested in joining, comment below and let everyone know you’re in! Then, with each of your posts, use the tag #SeptRAKs and display this banner:
Post about the different RAKs you did for the day to encourage each other and to give everyone ideas. If there are days when you just don’t feel well or didn’t go out or something, that’s fine! We all understand that things happen in life.
Are you worried about not having ideas? Check this site out right here for a ton of different ideas. You can also check out other people’s posts to get ideas or Pinterest, or simply help in an area where you see a need! An RAK is incredibly simple, yet can turn around an entire day or week for a person.
So. Are you in? Are you ready to change the world?
