A random act of kindness is any action designed to offer kindness towards the outside world. The phrase “practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty” was written by Anne Herbert on a place mat in Sausalito, California in 1982. Ten years later, Anne published a book, entitled Random Acts of Kindness, speaking about true stories of acts of kindness.
Today, RAKtivists are changing the world through random acts of kindness.
WHAT IS A RAKTIVIST?
‘RAKtivist’ is short for ‘Random Acts of Kindness activist’ – a kindness ambassador who inspires others with hope, kindness and generosity through their actions. RAKtivists are everywhere. The stranger who stops to hold the door open for a young mother with her hands full. The commuter who offers their bus seat to an elderly passenger. The person who leaves behind painted rocks for others to find. The crafter who sends cards to brighten someone’s day. Yes, you are a RAKtivist!
Recently, I received two RAK cards from other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. These are ladies that I have never met – but they choose to send crafting hugs to me. I literally did the happy dance at the mailbox. I couldn’t wait to open a crafting hug to me!
This card uses the “Crafting Forever” stamp set.
And this card uses “Oh So Eclectic” bundle.
