Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day

Sometimes, the greatest forms of generosity come in simple, random acts that start a ripple effect of kindness

Random Acts of Kindness Day is Feb. 17. Create a ripple of generosity with one small act of kindness.

One of the great things about generosity is that it can take place anytime, anywhere in any way – and it can put a smile on anyone's face.

Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Day, Feb. 17, 2019, by offering small, spontaneous positive gestures to brighten someone’s day and help make the world a better place.
