I just learned a new word: RAKtivist. If you think the word sounds a bit like activist, you’re right. A RAKtivist is a person who spreads kindness through random acts (Random Acts of Kindness). That’s my kind of activist. I can’t fathom spending time in the slammer for spreading kindness, can you?
Tomorrow, February 17, is Random Acts of Kindness Day. This day wraps up Random Acts of Kindness Week for 2018. This year’s campaign slogan is “Who’s Your One?” In other words, who is the one person who inspires you to be a better human being? I’m hoping you’ll leave your answer to that question right here on the blog along with one of your favorite random acts of kindness.
My favorite RAK is sharing a smile and a hello with others. My inspiration? I would say my mother gifted me with kindness and continues to inspire me today.
Kindness is contagious!
