RAK = Random Acts of Kindness

This is a blog I’ve started. It’s a call to be kind. Each week I’ll issue a challenge, simple and very do-able. We so often get caught up in the day to day of life, we forget simple kindness.

I’ve moved RAK to it’s own blog. You can find it here.

    I am trying to update the RAK button but it does not seem to be working — any ideas? I use blogger. I am a computer idiot!

    Jen, did you know September is Hunger Action Month? What about having people do a sweep of their pantry for some non-perishables they don’t need and can take to their local food bank. I know the food banks in our community are struggling to keep food available.

    Hi there, I’ve just discovered your blog and enjoy it a lot. I’m even learning things I’d never heard of, like birth defects. Thanks for sharing even the painful things.

    I love RAKs and try to do one once a week. Recently my RAK is on Friday mornings, I stop by my favorite coffee place — Dutch Bros. — and get a Dutch Freeze, my treat for the week. When I pay for my drink, I also pay for the person behind me. I tell the person in the window to tell them that it’s a happy friday present from a stranger and I call it my “pay it forward Friday”. I love doing that and I love it that I drive away and can remain totally anonymous while the person in the car behind me gets a surprise. I don’t look for any credit; I just want to brighten someone’s day. What a good feeling it is to do that!

    Last Friday, there were two people in the car, so paid for two drinks — a total of $8.00. Not a huge amount, but what a good feeling it is to “pay it forward.” Love it!! 🙂
