This week is Random Acts of Kindness Week, and DMM wants to help celebrate! We want to hear from Raktavists. RAKtivist is short for ‘Random Acts of Kindness activist’. Think of RAKtivists like kindness ambassadors – and, like all ambassadors, they’re a part of an active, global community. Anyone who believes kindness can change the world, who reminds everyone around them how much love there is in the world, who inspires hope and generosity with their actions as much as their words… they’re a RAKtivist.
SKOUT recently conducted a survey among more than 2,700 people to uncover trends when it comes to unexpected kindness.

To celebrate Random Acts of Kindness week DMM wants you to share your stories in the comment below!
Why share your RAK story?
Kindness is contagious! As you share and read RAK stories, you will inspire others and be inspired to take small actions that can help make someone else’s (and your) day a little better.
Think about the RAKs you’ve experienced and how they may have affected you, even on a small scale. Share your stories throughout from now until Sun , February 21st by commenting below. Don’t have any to share yet? Use these next few days to observe how someone’s unexpected RAK impacts you. We look forward to reading your stories and you never know, we might even reward a few Raktavists with a RAK of our own!
