Kindness Testimonials

A collection of testimonials for Random Acts of Kindness.

It is more than telling them ‘don't bully’ or ‘follow the golden rule.’ RAK leaves a more significant impression on the kids and they have fun!

Colorado School Teacher

As we see behavioral issues improve, that really opens the door academically making it a safe place in the classroom, a safe place to take risks where students respect each other and can make a mistake. And that is huge.

Colorado School Teacher

I think it is starting to permeate the whole school—adults and children, and it has brought us together as a staff.

Colorado School Teacher

I feel that the curriculum is providing not only activities, but activities that help kids develop strategies and to be very cognitive of their emotional social well-being and be in charge of it.

Colorado School Teacher

Students have an awareness of kindness being global, not just in the classroom, but at home too.

Colorado School Teacher

[RAK] transfers to academics because they will want to be in school, they will feel safe, and they will be willing to take academic risks

Colorado School Teacher

Well, everyone is happier. Because of kindness projects we do, everybody has more fun so instead of slumping around waiting for their turn to go to lunch and recess to talk, they are happy all day and they actually want to be in school. I think that RAK has spread throughout the whole school and that the whole school has gotten a lot brighter.

Student

I think kindness is really important because when I am mean to people it doesn’t make me feel so great, makes me feel better when I am kind and relate to them and makes me feel nice and happy.

Student

Just wanted to let you know that kindness is spreading here at our Middle School. To prove that, I have 14 Acts of Kindness slips sitting here. In one day, that many students got “caught.” I really feel like your presentation motivated our students and opened up their minds.

As Director of Pupil Services at Tapestry Charter School in Buffalo New York (grades K-6), I am always searching for ideas to promote positive relationships in our school community. I have developed a program that incorporates Random Act of Kindness’ ideas as an important part of these programs.

Your site offers some wonderful ideas that are easily incorporated into these other programs. I wanted to thank you for the many wonderful ideas from your site that have directly helped to create all these programs at our school.

Thank you for sending me KindTimes—it is terrific. I love the layout, graphics and great vignettes.

Way to go!“I also love the Kids Kindness Calendar—a great teaching resource!

The RAK Foundation website was a life saver this year. I did not decide to do all this until the Thursday before RAK Week. I got wonderful ideas and downloaded a lot of material from there.
