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.

Our Latest RAKs

Krispy Kreme Snowmen RAK

By Andrew | December 20, 2013

  My most favorite thing to eat for breakfast are donuts. We don’t have them often so it is always a happy day when there are donuts for breakfast. During Christmas a few years ago, my mom’s friend, Mrs. Hollin brought me and my friends snowman donuts from Krispy Kreme. These are the best donuts ever. All my friends are always excited to eat them. So, I went to Krispy Kreme before school on Wednesday, and we bought 3 dozen Snowman donuts for my class and my teachers. They were all so happy to see them. Even my teachers were excited to have the Snowman donuts.  This is a great RAK. You can just even buy a few or 1/2 dozen to give to someone at school, your office or wherever. It will brighten their day that someone gave them a Krispy Kreme Snowman donut. Keep RAK-ing!

Ask a teacher …

By Andrew | December 11, 2013

This is posted by Shareen Dunn, Andrew’s mom. Teachers know so much about so many children. So many teachers spend their own $$$ to help as many kids as they possibly can throughout the whole school year. For a Random Act of Kindness, ask a friend who is a teacher (at a school) if there is a child who could do with an extra something this Christmas. (Kids: Don’t ask your teacher during class. You can have your parents email the teacher if you like). I have been amazed at how many kids within my reach fall into that list. A board game, hair pins & bows, art supplies, mechanical pencils, an action figure – something small wrapped up and left for them/ delivered to them will uplift their day beyond measure. I have not met a teacher who has not had several names for me. #RAKLouisville

Pancakes RAK

By Andrew | December 10, 2013

Aunty Jackie and Uncle Sam in KL are rocking on our RAK projects. This past weekend they made pancakes for their neighbor. It looked delicious. I think breakfast  surprises are the best kind because it starts your day off brightly. Today’s Random Act of Kindness was for Uncle Rao our wonderful neighbour. Pancakes for breakfast. We love a recipe from Jamie Oliver which uses grated fruit and for a splash of decadence I added melted butter and some cinnamon powder. We hope it brought some joy to him.

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!
