It's official! #RAKWeek2017 has begun! Here are seven kindness challenges you can do each day of the week!

We hope to make 2017 the kindest year yet and it all begins with Random Acts of Kindness Week (#RAKWeek2017, Feb 12-18) 
This year, we created a Kindness Generator to help us with our goal of 'turning the world kind'. Anyone can find a kind act to do or report acts being done by others. We're going to keep a running total of acts performed so we can see who the kindest businesses, cities, and people are across the globe. 

Spread the word!
We want as many people as possible to know about #RAKWeek2017 because we believe that kindness matters. One act can lead to so many more and the more you share, the more people will be inspired to help us turn the world kind. Tag @rakfoundation in your posts or use the hashtag #RAKWeek2017 & we'll feature some of our favorite stories and ideas on our social media. Challenge yourself to do at least one RAK each day of the week. It will feel great—we promise.
