Random Act of Kindness Weekly Challenge

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.

  1. Reblogged this on Momisms – My Moments in Motherhood and commented:
    I haven’t reblogged anything for a while, but this struck me as pretty amazing. This blogger is posting random acts of kindness for every day of the year. How great is that? Now, she is offering a weekly challenge to all us other bloggers…a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) a week. I think this is totally doable! Lets all join in and make someones (even our own) day by doing something pretty amazing for someone else.

  3. Definitely imagine that which you stated. Your favourite reason
    appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to take note of.

    I say to you, I definitely get irked even as folks think about issues that they just
    do not recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top and also defined out the entire thing without having side-effects ,
    other people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks

  4. Most Facebook users are teenagers who do not have a lot of money to spend.
    Google+ is a social networking site that has a range of different features that you can use to connect with patients and other healthcare professionals.

    It does mean figuring out where your target audience is
    engaging (social networking sites) and developing a strategy for
    how you’re going to reach them.
