What is Random Act of Kindness Day?
RAK Day is our opportunity to do something kind for someone else, to appreciate fellow citizens and for community building. It’s NOT about fundraising or giving money! It’s just a day to CELEBRATE KINDNESS! Simple acts of kindness are endless: buy someone a coffee, rake their leaves, open and hold a door for someone or hug someone you love and tell them you love them! You can perform a random act of kindness for a friend or a complete stranger!
How to get involved
There will be 20,000 RAK Day cards available in our community. The cards encourage the holder (you) to perform a simple act of kindness for someone, then hand over the card to that person, and encourage him or her to do the same! The cards have this message on them, “You have been touched by Random Act of Kindness Day. Please return the favour and perform a Random Act of Kindness for a fellow citizen! Pass this card on…and pay it forward.
Where do I get my RAK Day Card?
RAK Day cards will be available at most shops in Downtown Fredericton, at the Fredericton Community Foundation.
OR you can print yours here!!
