We at RAK Experience believe there are so many effortless random acts of kindness you can do everyday for anyone. But since March 8th is International Women’s Day, we should go out of our way to show random acts of kindness to the women in our lives that we love and inspire us the most!
Doing random acts of kindness on this day will become extra special for your favorite ladies because they don’t really expect much on March 8th (except in certain European countries where it’s a big deal!). So why not step up your International Women’s Day greetings and do any of these three ways that you can RAK your favorite ladies on this special day.
1. Celebrate this day like how our friends in the Czech Republic typically do: surprise your favorite ladies with a flower or a box of chocolates (or both!)
As we have mentioned earlier, certain European countries celebrate March 8th at a different level than we do here in the US. In the Czech Republic, it’s almost like Valentine’s Day! Men give flowers to their mom, sisters, friends, and colleagues. Many companies have something special for female employees. In Berlin, they have recently announced March 8th as a public holiday!
Since it’s not as widely celebrated in the US, the flowers won’t be as expensive as on Valentine’s Day. Here’s a great tutorial on how to wrap flowers individually without breaking the bank. If you’re looking for a box for your homemade chocolates, why not try our RAK favor box?
2. Mail them a card and write why they’re one of your favorite ladies in the world
People typically expect to get cards on Christmas, birthday, or mo thers’ day, but International Women’s Day? Nah-uh. No one really expects it, unless, again, you’re from Europe!
Make this random act of kindness extra special by writing what makes the recipient inspiring. Maybe even tell them why for you, they’re better than Frida Kahlo, braver than Rosa Parks, or funnier than Ellen Degeneres. Think long and hard why you value their presence in your life and write it down.
Too busy to go to the post office? It’s 2020 and now you can send stamped mail without getting out of your chair! We like using Postable to send printed cards with “handwritten” messages. You can customize their cards and use your own pictures or just choose from their huge library of designs. Postable’s cards are recycled so you’re also doing an act of kindness for the earth!
3. Think of their “quotable quote” and share it on social media
When you spend so much time with someone, you can’t help but notice certain recurring statements from your close friends and family. It doesn’t have to be deep and meaningful. It can be something as silly as:
“‘I don’t know’ is not an answer!”
You can even quickly design it on Canva to make it look like it’s an actual inspirational quote before posting and tagging her on social media.
There’s a lot more random acts of kindness you can do on March 8th, but however you decide to celebrate your favorite ladies in the world, make sure to take a photo/video and tag us!written” messages. You can customize their cards and use your own pictures or just choose from their huge library of designs. Postable’s cards are recycled so you’re also doing an act of kindness for the earth!
