2016 RAOKs: 3rd Month, March = 3 RAOKs

March RAOK 1 of 3:

Tissues brand has a promotion going where you can send a free pack of tissues to someone with a message.  I sent one to a friend, and one to my mom and dad.  I had to send my dads to my address, as you can only send one item to each address... so when I get it I will deliver it to him  :)

March RAOK 2 of 3:

While shopping, I saw an older woman with her shoelace untied.  I let her know, and offered to tie it for her, but she said she could do it.  

March RAOK 3 of 3:

On Easter I stopped at Starbucks - and it was packed. I bought a $5 gift card and ordered my drink. On the way out I gave the gift card to the last girl in line. She just stared at me... I said Happy Easter here's a $5 gift card as a random act of kindness. She still never said anything... Hope she enjoyed it.

2016 RAOKs: 2nd Month, February = 2 RAOKs

# 1 of 2:
I participated in National Random Act of Kindness Day, on February 17th.  

#2 of 2:
I organized a collection of items for a family who lost everything in a house fire here in RSM.  I collected items and dropped them off to a neighbors house who was collecting, and also dropped a second batch off at Menchies, who also had a drive.

2016 RAOKs: 1st Month, January = 1 RAOK

So, its January 4th and I already have 1 RAOK done for the 1st month. I am sure there will be more to come.

January:  1 RAOK

I was at the post office on my lunch today, mailing out the prize to a contest Bandit had on his Instagram.
(Seriously, my cat has over 2,500 followers on Instagram.  He is way cooler than I am.)

Anyway, the line was huge.  A woman two places behind me said she was in line for ONE STAMP.  I went in my wallet and gave her a stamp.  She offered me the change, I declined and told her it was a Random Act of Kindness.

I stood in that line for 35 minutes.  That would have been absurd for one stamp, so I was glad I could help her!

The plan for RAOKs in 2016...

For 2016 I plan to make the number of RAOKs I do, coincide with the month.

January, 1
February, 2
March, 3

I went big in 2015, and it was fun!

I am having a hard time slowing down from the pressure of doing so many in 2015, so my guess is I will start of with more than 1 in January, since I already did one!

2,015 RAOKs in 2015: #2015!


Volunteered on Christmas Eve donating food to a home of veterans for a Christmas meal. We sang carols and thanked the gentleman in the home for their service. 

Doing 2,015 RAOKs in 2015 was a challenge but I loved doing it!
