About RAK Louisville
RAK Louisville (Random Acts of Kindness Louisville) is a movement to flood this city of Louisville with random acts of kindness and epic acts of service. We identify serving opportunities throughout the community that are suitable for students, promote RAK Louisville projects and continue to raise up RAK Louisville team leaders who can lead projects throughout our community. The Mayor of Louisville has proclaimed December 23rd as Random Acts of Kindness Louisville (RAK Louisville) Day. We work hard to encourage as many people and teams to participate on this day to bring awareness to RAKLouisville.
We launch monthly challenges that benefit different grassroots organizations that serve the homeless and needy in the Louisville area. We are committed to spreading the idea of kindness and service in schools through RAK Clubs. We want to continue to challenge students to use their passion to change our city and live their lives with purpose.
Don’t live in Louisville? You may have to start one in your community!
