Participate in the first annual #KindnessExperience on Random Acts of Kindness Day, February 17, 2023! You might just change someone's life—maybe even your own!

This is a simple experiment for individuals to experience the scientific benefits of kindness.

The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward.” -Jamil Zaki

Together, we can show the world the amazing impact simple acts of kindness can have on the recipient, the giver and anyone who witnesses it.

IT’S EASY AS 1, 2, 3:

  • Pick your top two kindness ideas and write each one on a separate piece of paper. Put the ideas in a container and randomly select one. Engage as many people as you can... wherever you spend your time!
  • Perform the act of kindness.
  • Share how it went—tag @rakfoundation or email us

Check out our kindness ideas, calendars (school, work and home) and our brand new kindness poster (see below) to help brainstorm ideas.

  • Check out our kindness resources for SCHOOL, WORKPLACE and HOME
  • Sign up to receive a kindness idea every Monday.
  • Join the RAKtivists (Random Act of Kindness activists) community to receive exclusive resources along with behind the scenes pictures/videos of the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.
  • Print kindness quotes, color and hang up in areas to inspire yourself and others.

To help spread the word, download and share our official participation guide here. We also created a kindness ideas poster and fun coloring page you can download below.

Can you imagine a world where kindness is the norm? That’s the world we want.
That’s why we do what we do. And it requires some intentional actions.

We love connecting people with ideas and resources. We encourage and celebrate acts of kindness.
It’s definitely not normal. But it might be soon. #MakeKindnesstheNorm

We also have other resources to inspire you to be kind wherever you are—kindness ideas, kindness quotes, the kind blog, kindness videos and kindness stories.
