Random Acts of Kindness Day-ActiveRain Style


Random Acts of Kindness Day is one of my favorite days of the year to celebrate and as I’m sure many will say…it’s a day to be celebrated every day of the year.

This is such a giving community that a list of tips to inspire acts of kindness would be like preaching to the choir. 



However, I did think about some Random Acts of Kindness we could share with our fellow members…


Random Acts of Kindness in our ActiveRain community:

-Leave a comment on a post you see with zero comments

-Call, text, or email a blogger when you especially liked a post or comment they wrote

-Welcome a new member All you have to do is scroll to the bottom of the page.

Under Important Links click on Membership Roster. There you’ll see those who joined today.  Text, email, or call…whatever you’re comfortable with. 

I took the above screenshot today (Wednesday, February 16)


-Comment on the post of a new member. 

You can welcome them to the platform and encourage them to continue to blog.

-Reach out to a member who regularly posts but has been MIA. Maybe they’re on a break, but they will appreciate your reaching out. 


-Reblog someone’s post

We’re all human and like to think that people are reading our posts. Give a member a little boost. 

-Be Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 

Margaret makes it a practice to call a member here every day. I will never forget when I received her call. 


What’s a Random Act of Kindness you’ve received lately??

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Aesop

Anthony Kirlew life pulls in all kinds of directions. Kindness can be just saying "hello"

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty it adds a layer to our lives that cannot be measured. I feel "richer" after I speak with a friend.

Hi Kathy:

I think there is a fair amount of RAK here in the Rain  most days! Or maybe not so random.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker you're so right. We never know how an act of kindness we share will impact someone.

Carol Williams in a selfish way, doing RAK makes us feel good. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I've texted or emailed people when I don't have a feel for how receptive they'd be to a call.

I hadn't learned about the significance of this day.  But, I promise tomorrow, I will belatedly practice some random acts of kindness.

Hi Kathy - there are plenty in the AR group that support each other.  I think I will call some people that I have missed.

I loved Random Acts of Kindness Day, but they shouldn't be random, and not just on one day, but every day.  Imagine the difference that would make in the world if we all practiced this every day!!

I didn't know it was restricted to just one day.. I thought it was the duty of the 'older members here to make the newbies welcome
