Random Acts of Kindness Week
Random Acts of Kindenss Week takes place each February. Established in 1995, Random Acts of Kindness is an internationally recognized nonprofit based in Denver, CO. It consists of a small team that is dedicated to inspiring everyone to practice and spread kindness in their own lives.
WHAT IS A RAKTIVIST? ‘RAKtivist’ is short for ‘Random Acts of Kindness activist’. Think of RAKtivists like kindness ambassadors—and, like all ambassadors, they’re a part of an active, global community.
RAKtivists are everywhere. The student who stops to hold the door open for a teacher with her hands full? That person is a RAKtivist. The commuter who offers their bus seat to an elderly passenger? That person is a RAKtivist too. The parking attendant who leaves a note on someone’s car, complimenting their parking skills? You guessed it: RAKtivist.
Anyone who believes kindness can change the world, who reminds everyone around them how much love there is in the world, who inspires hope and generosity with their actions as much as their words—they’re a RAKtivist.
And this is where RAKtivists come together!
