I'm Officially a RAKtivist!

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation

I've been doing random acts of kindness for years. I did a 100-Day Challenge, I completed 29 RAKs for my 29th birthday on January 29, and in 2016 I'm launching B(e) Kind 366  - one RAK a day every day of the year. Ever since I started doing RAKs I've been following The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation on Facebook and Twitter. At the beginning of this week I noticed that the Foundation was taking applications for RAKtivists. In the lead up to the launch of B(e) Kind 366, this opportunity was just perfect timing. The application was short and straightforward and within one day of submitting it, I received a response letting me know I was officially in! I'm a RAKtivist! I strongly urge you to think about becoming one too. Really and truly and once you do, here's the application: Become a RAKtivist today!

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation also has a Pinterest and YouTube page filled with pretty much unlimited kindness ideas. The Kindness Ideas page of the Foundation website supplies kindness ideas in the categories of Environment, Animals, Community, Work, Family, School, Sports, Just for Me, and Everyday Kindness. The acts can be sorted by expense and time investment. As a RAKtivist I take part in a weekly challenge with hundreds of fellow RAKtivists. I can't wait to turn my RAKtivism and the ideas and inspiration from The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation into a big part of B(e) Kind 366!


  1. Hi Brandy, well that sounds like a very worthwhile thing to do. I enjoy doing the odd random act of kindness. I just had no idea there was a name for it. I’ve just followed RAKtivist and you on Twitter. Barbara x

    1. Glad to here it! It you want to become "Official" you should apply. It's soooo very easy and you don't have to do all of the things they suggest :)

  2. Enjoy the high that comes with being part of such a wonderful group! :)

  3. WOW Brandy, clearly you're a super awesome person! I'm going to check out this foundation - I've not heard of it before. Is it a bit like Pay it Forward? (I saw the movie lol!)

  4. I'll have to check it out. I've heard of RAK here and there, but not the formed group etc you're referring to. Thanks for the blog visit, much appreciated. Always nice to connect. Looking forward to it through a-z.
