After posting yesterday about The Random Act of Kindness Foundation, I decided it was time to practice what I preach. So, every Wednesday, I will post a new Random Act of Kindness (RAK) challenge. Yes, folks, I am challenging you to perform one RAK per week with me. The idea is simple. Every Wednesday, check here on my blog or over on my Facebook page for the weekly challenge. At some point in the next 7 days, complete the challenge. Check back in and let us know that you’ve done your RAK for the week. And then, do it all again the next week. Do not underestimate the power of kindness. Performing one little act each week will undoubtedly make the day better for someone else and will make you walk a little taller, smile a little wider and love life a lot more.
So, today’s challenge:
Send a Note of Appreciation: When is the last time that you took the time to write note or letter to someone you care about? Life is busy and we frequently take the people we care about or who care about us for granted. It may be someone close to you – your spouse, parents, sibling or children. Or it may be someone who played a significant role in your life at some point, but is no longer a part of it. Regardless of who you choose, it will undoubtedly brighten their day to receive a note from you. If you have school age children, get them in on this RAK too and open up a conversation about kindness! You can choose your own medium – email, USPS, and messenger pigeon will all do the job! That said, if you want to make it really special, send a handwritten note. Read more about this idea here.
