30 fun RAK Ideas!

The possibilities are endless, as Random Acts of Kindness Day is not about spending huge amounts of money, but about surprising people with a little act of kindness.

Here are some ideas to get your grey matter churning…

  • Pay for an extra coffee and ask the barista to give to the next person who comes in
  • Put a nice note inside a library book when you return it
  • Pick flowers from your garden and take to your teacher
  • Paint rocks and leave them around your neighbourhood
  • Offer to walk your neighbour’s dog
  • Deliver spring bulbs to your neighbours’ letterboxes to plant in all the berms
  • Pay a stranger a compliment – you just don’t know what they’re going through

  1. I try to come up with fun ideas to add each year. Ones that don’t cost anything – or much anyway! Have fun x

  2. some FABULOUS ideas in there. Thanks. I will lift my game, but, not just for the day, as I think I’m fairly good at RAK’s… I’m a giver not a ‘taker’.
