So, you want to be a RAKtivist™? Your awesome status and street cred just skyrocketed. RAKtivists are the limbs of our organizational body. You are the daily doers, movers and shakers; reaching out to others and not just talking the talk, but using those limbs to walk the walk.
Our RAKtivists are an extraordinary class of kind do-er’s. They truly believe that kindness can change the world and exemplify that in their day-to-day lives. The RAKtivist™ program recognizes these individuals and creates a community for kindness to flourish. After all, kindness is interdependent and the more we can work together, the greater our reach and impact.
For that reason, our RAKtivists participate in fun and easy monthly “Kindness Raids” in their own communities as well as the online community.

Matt Cash is an amazing guy. He is one of the original creators of the RAK City Chivers page, a group dedicated to providing acts of kindness to all living creatures, without prejudice. Before becoming a member of this group, he hosted events for local charities around Austin. He continuously strives to make the world better than he found it, and we think he’s doing a pretty stellar job.READ INTERVIEW
