Tell Us Your Kindness Story

RAKtivist: Travis

Hello, my name is Travis, and I am selfish! Yup, as the youngest of four growing up, I was spoiled rotten. If some was good, than more was better. A good friend of mine told me that I suffer from “Not Enoughness!” It’s true!

As an adult I have been better, but I still feel that urge inside of always WANTING. I got into improvisation over 16 years ago and it drastically changed my mindset about living. In improvisation, it’s all about GIVING and taking care of everyone you perform with. That was HUGE! Over the past 15 years I have still performed as an improvisational comedian, but it has also launched me into life coaching, corporate coaching, and performance coaching, all using the principles of improvisation. My company is called Live YES, AND! I help individuals, teams, and companies discover their brilliance through a life-transforming commitment to collaboration. It’s all about giving!

Two years ago during Thanksgiving, I had an “Aha!” moment. Black Friday was the next day and I was sickened by all of the commercials and craziness. I had a brilliant pun! What if instead of Black Friday, we celebrated RAK Friday? Just imagine spending the entire day in your community performing as many random acts of kindness as possible! RAK Friday ( was born! So for the last two years we have inspired and encouraged people around the United States to do the same and the response has been awesome. Each year we want to do more, always in the spirit of service rather than selfishness! During 2016, my family and I are committed to doing at least one RAK every day for the entire year! Want to join us?
