Random Acts of Kindness Week February 16-22 


For more than 20 years, Random Acts of Kindness Week (RAK Week) has focused on bringing people together through acts of kindness. The fact of the matter is, being kind is actually good for mental and physical health, and not just for the kindness-giver, but also the receiver, and everyone else who witnesses the act of kindness.

"A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal." - Steve Maraboli
