RAKtivist: Brandy

My name is Brandy Robertson and I am the Executive Director of The Women's Resource Centre in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. Conscious kindness has been a part of my life for about the last five years, but when I really think about it I’ve been passionate about volunteering for more than two decades. At the age of ten, I started volunteering for a community used book sale and those early efforts evolved to the point where I have now volunteered at one point or another with nearly twenty different organizations.

Over the past five years I’ve taken on a number of random acts of kindness challenges, including a thirty-day challenge, a one hundred-day challenge, and when my 29th birthday fell on January 29th a few years ago I performed 29 RAKs that day. As part of my birthday RAKs, I asked my friends and family to participate as well and the result was 51 people in 7 countries across 5 continents performing 72 acts of kindness! My newest endeavour has been a few years in the making, but 2016 is finally here and with it B(e) Kind 366 has begun. Every day in 2016 I will be performing a random (or not) act of kindness, raising funds for three organizations that hold special places in my heart, and hoping to inspire the masses to be kind!
