What is Random Act of Kindess Day (RAKyxe)?
It is a city wide celebration of kindness promoting a ‘pay it forward’ movement in the community that takes place annually on the first Friday in November. It is not a fundraising activity and no solicitation occurs during this event. RAK Day is meant to be a fun and simple way to encourage unexpected moments of kindness in our community.
How does it work?
Do something nice for someone and ask nothing more than for that person to pay it forward. We have created RAK Day ‘Pay it Forward’ cards that can be left behind so that person has the information they need to also participate in RAK Day. Pay it Forward cards are available for pick up at the Saskatoon Community Foundation office located at 101 – 308 4th Ave North.
Not sure how to show your kindness? Get a group together and plan a neighbourhood clean-up. Volunteer at a charity. Shovel someone’s walk. Compliment a stranger. We have a list of 101 Acts of Kindness to get your started.
We would love to promote the good work you are doing on our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so make sure to use #RAKyxe and follow @RAKSaskatoon on Twitter and Instagram!
To participate there is no need to register, simply show kindness to others. You can pick up “Kindness Cards” at the Saskatoon Community Foundation located at 101-308 4th Ave North.
