It will come as no surprise that here at RAK, we really love random acts of kindness. In fact, it’s in our name! We love to RAK our friends and family by sending them gifts to brighten their day but we also think that it’s so much fun to send a gift to a stranger. We want to connect strangers around the world with random acts of kindness ideas so we created our Anonymous RAK and RAK Donor programs.
What is it?
A RAK is a random act of kindness. We have created RAK boxes for you to customize and send to people around the world. You RAK a little or you can RAK a lot, but every RAK is meaningful. You can choose between a $10 box and a $25 box, each filled with goodies to put a smile on anyone’s face. The only difference with the Anonymous RAK is that instead of choosing someone you know to send the box to, it is sent to a stranger! You never know who your RAK is sent to but you will know that it brought them a lot of joy!
How Does It Work?
Our RAK nominee list is full of people who are deserving of a Random Act of Kindness kit - and this means it could be anyone because we all deserve kindness in our lives! You can nominate someone that you know (or even yourself!) to get onto the list. Then you can sign up to send an Anonymous RAK. Our patented RAK technology will then match all of our RAK donors to our special RAK nominees. We’ll announce on our social media when we send out our Anonymous RAK’s so you know when your gift is about to make someone’s day. Now you are a true #RAKStar!
Why send an Anonymous Random Act of Kindness gifts?
There truly is a different kind of thrill sending a RAK to a stranger! Not only do you make a difference in someone else’s life without expecting anything in return, science shows that a RAK a day keeps the doctor away! Okay, that may not be entirely true, but research does show that carrying out random acts of kindness is really good for our mental health. It can reduce stress, improve our emotional wellbeing, and sometimes even our physical well being. It connects us to others and creates bonds and our brains really love that!
The Anonymous RAK stories are some of our favorites to hear about especially this year. We have all been spending a lot more time at home and away from strangers. People are feeling isolated and disconnected from other people, now more than ever. We may not be able to go to the movies, see live music, or meet new friends, but we can always keep on spreading kindness and connecting with people through RAKs.
Make sure to tell us your RAK and Anonymous Random Act of Kindness stories by tagging us on social media. That is your gift to us because seeing your stories makes our day!
