It’s RAK Day!

Megan FBMonday┬áSeptember 1st is New Zealand’s Random Acts of Kindness Day. And this year we celebrate 10 years (yes TEN YEARS!) that NZ has been the only country in the world to celebrate a national RAK Day!

There’s loads of stuff happening and we’d love to hear what you’re up to. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter and let us know.

On here you’ll find ideas to get you started, a bit about why on earth we started this day in NZ, and some free downloadable resources to print out little ‘You’ve been RAK’d’ cards and give them out with your own random act.

Cheers, Megan x

  2. I came to know about NZ RAK DAY only yesterday through East n’ Bays Courier. I was so thrilled to know that something like this is there in NZ. I am a person who had been implementing ‘RAK ideas’ from around aged 10 in a significant way. These ideas can surely change parents, kids, families, friends, societies, nations and the world. I have done it in Sri Lanka. Now I am in NZ for 15 months. I love this country. This is one of the most blessed countries in the world. RAK ideas can make this lovely country truly awesome. Congratulations ! for all the hard work for the past 9 years.
    Josh de Jong, Marshall Gray and everyone else………………….you are so great.

  3. Hi,
    My kids and I have done RAK day for a few years now. We have previously handed out daffodils to people, cupcakes and when the kids were smaller we made cardboard daffodils that they gave to students and teachers at their school. This year we are going to do something a little different. The kids and I are going to make morning tea (either cupcakes or chocolate brownie) to take to organisations and businesses that make a difference in our community, just to say, “thanks” we appreciate what you do. I feel very strongly that our kids are part of this, so they get to see how good it feels to help others and to show appreciation.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAK!

  4. I love this – I am a teacher and my class do pass on the kindness each day. We have a container that the children can choose little cards from and do the act that is written on the card. The children have been writing their own cards for the other children to choose. We love this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwAYpLVyeFU
