Everybody has the potential to change the world. We can tell you’re someone who wants to seize that potential. You’re a RAKtivist—you just didn’t know it until now.
RAKtivists are the heroes of our organization. They live and breathe kindness, sharing knowledge and leading by example. And you can tell where they’ve been—because they leave a trail of warm-and-fuzzy feelings in their wake.
‘RAKtivist’ is short for ‘Random Acts of Kindness activist’. Think of RAKtivists like kindness ambassadors—and, like all ambassadors, they’re a part of an active, global community.
RAKtivists are everywhere. The student who stops to hold the door open for a teacher with her hands full? They’re a RAKtivist. The commuter who offers their bus seat to an elderly passenger? They’re a RAKtivist too. The parking attendant who leaves a note on someone’s car, complimenting their parking skills? You guessed it. RAKtivist. Anyone who believes kindness can change the world, who reminds everyone around them how much love there is in the world, who inspires hope and generosity with their actions as much as their words—they’re a RAKtivist.
And this is where RAKtivists come together.
When it comes to Kindness Missions, our policy is ‘the more, the merrier.’And with kindness raids occurring across the world every month, you’ll never have to wait long to join in.
The internet can be a bit of a cynical place sometimes—but not in our neck of the woods. Our private RAKtivist Facebook group is an awesome place to meet new, kind-minded people and share ideas.
Kindness is its own reward—but sometimes it feels great to get some recognition for your work, right? By sharing your photos, kindness ideas, and stories with us, you’ll see them featured on our site and social media pages! If you’re more of an introvert, you can enjoy the wallflower benefits of reading inspiring stories, watching the group grow and occasionally quietly crying when one of those beautiful (but sad) videos pops up in your feed.
No matter how you engage, you’re making the world a better place.
