Inspiring people to practice kindness and pass it on to others

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation has a mission of inspiring people to practice kindness and to pass it on to others. RAK's goals are to inspire, empower, act and share to build the kindness community. We are continuing The Extreme Kindness Campaign to inspire you to share your stories. If you have a story to share—about you or someone you know—please tell us about it. We are interested in stories featuring kindness being demonstrated in service to others in your community. Your story can feature kindness in any form, as long as it serves to make a difference, in even a small way. This act of kindness should be currently underway, so that we are able to film it in action.
To give you an idea of the stories we are looking for, watch the video of last year's winner: Peach's Neet Feet.
To enter, please complete the following form. Be sure to include your complete name, address and phone number.
Submissions must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. MST on December 31, 2012. Winners will be notified by January 4, 2013.
The RAK staff will select the winner, and we deserve the right to make the final determination. Kindness is open to interpretation and comes in all shapes and forms. Kindness reflected in your approach to life, your attitude and your willingness to go out of your way for others will likely impress us. Surprise us! Inspire us! We hope this will be a difficult contest to judge.
Watch the video above of last year's Extreme Kindness Challenge winner: Peach's Neet Feet.
Acceptable materials to accompany your submission include images, relevant website links, a short video or a Word document narrative describing your act of kindness of no more than 500 words.
