Join Xanterra in Celebrating #RAKWeek2021
Random Acts of Kindness Day: Wednesday February 17, 2021
Random Acts of Kindness Week: February 14-20, 2021
RAK Week is an annual opportunity to unite through kindness. Formally recognized in 1995, this seven-day celebration demonstrates that kindness is contagious. It all starts with one act – one smile, one coffee for a stranger, one favor for a friend. It’s an opportunity for participants to leave the world better than they found it and inspire others to do the same. Since inception, RAK estimates that millions of celebrities, businesses, schools, and partners have participated in these weeklong celebrations.
We are upholding this annual tradition of celebrating kindness because we know everyone can use more kindness in their lives. Scientific evidence shows us the positive effects of doing kind acts for others as well as receiving or even witnessing kindness. Even the smallest act of kindness can change a life. In 2021, we encourage everyone to Explore the Good and Make Kindness the Norm.
Check out our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profiles for updates on how we are trying to spread kindness throughout the week.
