February 12, 2017
It starts today! Random Acts of Kindness Week is an uplifting, inspiring reminder of how we are each empowered to make a positive difference in the world around us through the little things we can do every day for others. It is a reminder to focus on our potential for positive impact and sharpen our kindness skills. Use your creativity to create RAK opportunities this week, or visit the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation’s Idea Page for inspiration.
Share your efforts using #RAKWeek2017 to spread the inspiration, and if you are part of our central Florida Humanist community, use our Humanist RAK Cards.
All week we focus on increasing our RAK footprints – but on Friday, make an intentional effort to amp up the kindness for Random Acts of Kindness Day.
Hashtag your posts with #RAKweek and #RAKweek2017 so the RAK Foundation can find them and feature posts throughout the week on their social media sites.
Goodness is in the heart of all. Pass it on!
Humanists believe in the value and good in all humans; let’s demonstrate that commitment through Random Acts of Kindness and make a visible difference that strengthens and affirms our positive presence in our community.
Random Acts of Kindness moments are an opportunity for members of the humanist community to visibly promote that goodness is in the heart of all and help to overcome misconceptions and negative stereotypes about non-religious people.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Participate in Central Florida with us! Create ripples of kindness that let others know that goodness is in the heart of all. BE. part of it. Use the Humanist Kindness Ambassador RAK Cards to “sign” your RAKS with a message of inclusiveness and connectedness – and write a message of your own on the back of the card.
