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.
We are currently assembling snack bags and distributing them to different sites around that city that are open. Please order off our Amazon wishlist for items that would be included in these bags:

And then he walks away. I was really shocked. He must have overheard me talking to my mom or Dad. I told him Thank You so many times! Wow.Read More

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.
