    “#RAKWeek is an annual opportunity to unite through kindness. Led by the Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Foundation and formally recognized in 2000, this seven-day celebration demonstrates how kindness starts with one—one act, one smile, one coffee for a stranger, one favor for a friend.

    It’s an opportunity for participants to leave the world better than they found it and inspire others to do the same. Since inception, RAK estimates that millions of people have participated in the week-long celebration. For 2018, the last day of the event happens to be Random Acts of Kindness Day, February 17th—making it one of the most exciting celebrations yet!”
