We're only two days in and the world is already bursting with kindness.

Happy RAK Week everyone! We're so amazed by all the kind acts going on around the world right now. We're overjoyed that you all are taking advantage of this annual opportunity to focus on the good and unite through kindness. It’s simply an opportunity to leave the world better than we found it and inspire others to do the same. Keep tagging @rakfoundation & using the hashtag #RAKWeek2017 so we can keep sharing all of your kindness with the world!

Though, every minute we're seeing more people getting involved with RAK Week - it's amazing to see! Keep up the kind work. 

Stay tuned for more kindness.
