Today kicks off International Random Acts of Kindness Week! This year, the goal is to flood social media with kindness and record 100,000 acts of kindness. As a RAKtivisit, I’m pretty pumped about this week and have a few things up my sleeve to do my part towards that number.
It’s called the “Somewhere Out There Project.”
The website says: “The goal of the Somewhere Out There Project is to create a tangible way to share smiles with the world. We create small wood burned tokens that have a positive message on them and then leave them in the world for people to find in the hopes that we will make them smile.”
Doesn’t that sound like such a neat idea? I know that I would be willing to purchase something like that in order to let someone know that “ somewhere out there, someone cares.” Because don’t we all need to realize that sometimes?
In fact, because I donated to the campaign, I received tokens to share with others! I have been saving them for this week and plan to leave them “somewhere out there!” I can’t wait to spread some smiles!
If you like this idea as much as I do, then you can help it grow too! One option is to donate on the projects FundRazr page by clicking here. You can donate as little as $1, and every little bit helps. If you are unable to make a financial contribution, you can always share the Somewhere Out There Project website on you social media networks. The more people who know about it, the more support the project can receive. Don’t forget to follow the Somewhere Out There Project on Facebook too!
Do you plan to do any random acts of kindness this week? If you do, I’d love to hear about them! Leave them in a comment here or on my Facebook page! You can tweet me too! Whatever you do, make sure you use the hashtag #RAKWeek2015 so it can get recorded by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.
