Random Act Of Kindness Day®

By Rochelle Benoit – December 16, 2016

For the past seven years, Random Act of Kindness Day® (RAK Day) has inspired Waterloo Region and other Canadian communities to engage citizens in small acts of kindness and generosity. This day is so special because it focuses on people. We get so busy in our day-to-day lives that sometimes we forget to think about the people around us. It is the missed opportunities for caring interaction that affect how we feel about one another, and about our community.

Since the beginning, The KWCF and its dedicated volunteers have driven the local movement. Now RAK Day is about many individuals and organizations stepping up to find their own ways to impact the lives of others. This shift to community ownership of RAK Day means positive things for our community. It means we all see the value in being kind to one another and making sure that everyone feels like they belong.
