Thanks for donating to RAK Louisville and trusting us with your giving.

This is the #1 question that is asked of us.

How can we help?

Well, we would love to mobilize all of you to go ahead and make snack bags. This will be a great meal supplement for students and adults who need some help with food during these weeks. We have to support them through our community and grassroots channels.

Snack Bags!

Our Latest RAKs

RAK Louisville 2014 – Here we go!

By Andrew | November 13, 2014

It is that time of year again where we can spend all month doing Random Acts of Kindness. Let’s do one thing a day at least that is a random act of kindness through the month of December. Or, we can start practicing NOW. If all of us do one thing a day, we can flood our city with kindness. And it does not matter where you live. You can live in Southern Indiana, in Singapore or Kuala Lumpur or Shelbyville! I am very excited that more people will be joining us this December in our RAK project. Please tell your friends and encourage them to also be a part of this. Remember, stay anonymous when you can. And, you must always be safe. Don’t do anything that is not safe. Please share your ideas of what has worked for you. We are always sharing ideas with our friends through our blog. I am very excited to get RAK Louisville going this year. It is our city and I am looking forward to showing our city kindness!!   In Kindness, Andrew Dunn

RAK from Miss Carla: Coats for the Needy when the temps drop

By Andrew | January 4, 2014

Today in Louisville, everyone is talking about how cold it is going to get. Most people are talking about maybe there will be no school and there will be ice. Our friend, Miss Carla, took the opportunity to do a great and thoughtful RAK. She went out and bought coats to give to people who don’t have a warm coat. How cool is that? She bought coats and then, took them to Wayside Christian Mission. They will be working hard to meet the needs of people who need help when the weather gets really cold. I think that this is a great RAK in helping our city. Good job Miss Carla. In Kindness, Andrew

By Andrew | December 25, 2013

    This is the easiest RAK for anyone. You can do it as a family or with friends or your team. It is a 2 hour shift and you can sign up at the Salvation Army website. http://www.ringbells.org/ Please make this a family tradition. It will be the best thing ever and you will meet some pretty great people. We even had the Starbucks folks bring up Hot chocolate to warm us up. Some people sing carols. We usually just ring our bells really LOUDLY!

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!
