It’s Random Act of Kindness Day today in New Zealand. RAK Day is all about people doing kind things for others – for absolutely no reason at all.
If a complete stranger pays for your coffee today or your neighbour arrives with some baking consider yourself RAK’d!
RAK Day was started by four friends: Josh de Jong, Marshall Gray, Megan Singleton and Reubyn Gwyn who thought it would be great if Kiwis had a day when people carried out a kind act for others. This is the sixth year that RAK has taken place and businesses around New Zealand are getting on board – the city of Napier will be giving away goodies and treats to shoppers today and Westfield Malls also have events planned.
