Here at the RAK Experience we think every day is the perfect day for random acts of kindness. That being said, Valentine’s Day is coming up and it’s a PERFECT opportunity to spread the love to your friends and family with simple gestures that go a long way. Valentine’s Day is a day of love and these random acts of kindness ideas are sure to make your loved ones smile and feel as loved as they are!
Remember how fun it was to give and receive Valentines from all of your classmates back in elementary school (especially when they had candy attached!). Break out the doilies and glitter and get creative this year. Write personalized messages in each of the cards then drop them off in the mailboxes of friends and family or on the desks of your coworkers to let them know you’re thinking of them.
You know that aunt or grandparent (or whoever) who you love but just haven’t been able to talk to in a while? Carve out some time and give them a ring on Valentine’s Day. Seeing your name on the caller ID is sure to make them smile.
We think the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach and there’s nothing like a tasty treat on Valentine’s Day. Here are some ideas for inspiration. This random act of kindness words will make anyone’s day.
Once you’ve shown love to your friends and family, why not send an anonymous RAK to a stranger to keep spreading the love. When you sign up to be an anonymous RAK donor, we’ll match you to someone worthy of a random act of kindness and send them a RAK gift box. It’s super easy!
Take this Valentine’s Day to show your loved one’s how much you care with random acts of kindness. In a year where we haven’t been able to see as much of each other as we would like to, a little kindness goes a long way!
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.
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!
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!
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 wellbeing. 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 Acts of Kindness stories by tagging us on social media. That is your gift to us because seeing your stories makes our day!
