About Random Act of Kindness Day:
Since 2008 Random Act of Kindness® (RAK) Day has brought together Canadian communities by engaging citizens in small acts of kindness and generosity. You can learn more about the origins of Random Act of Kindness Day HERE.
The message is simple; do something nice for someone and ask nothing in return other than they do something nice for someone else. Part of the beauty of the initiative is that it doesn’t have to cost a cent. Holding a door open, words of thanks and encouragement, telling someone they’ve done a good job – these are the kinds of acts that citizens ‘pay forward’ on this special day.
There are many ways for you to get involved:
- Become a RAK Day supporter – Since last year the Stratford Perth Community Foundation has taken a lead role in initiating this amazing day in Stratford, St. Marys and Perth County – and we need your support to make it happen! You can become a RAK Day Corporate partner to help us cover the costs associated with this special day (if interested, I can send you a partner proposal).Importantly, you can get your company involved. If you want to do something big to celebrate RAK Day (I can provide you with ideas), let us know and we’ll include your company logo as a supporter in our advertising! Together let’s make kindness a priority.
- Join our Committee and Kindness Krew – Help us spread the word and touch the lives of others to make our world a better place. You are invited to join our planning committee that meets regularly. And, on November 4th, our Kindness Krew will be out in the community performing acts of kindness throughout the day and encouraging others to pay it forward – you can be part of that too!
- Tell us about your simple acts of kindness – Register your group, organization or business and let us know the acts of kindness you plan on doing – for family members, co-workers, neighbours, clients, or a complete stranger! Once registered, pick up a kindness kit from the SPCF office to distribute on Random Act of Kindness Day®.
