about this story

I was walking to my car one day and I noticed an envelope on my windshield with $20 and a note inside that read "CONGRATULATIONS YOU'VE BEEN RAK'D (Random Act of Kindness). Pay it forward! I was so blessed by this Random Act of Kindness I decided to RAK 4 people myself.

1)I took my elderly neighbors dog Billy for a walk and let him go for a swim in the lake. I then took him home and gave him a bath and returned him to my neighbor.

2) I volunteered at one of the local elementary schools to coach their t-ball program! The little kids are adorable and I had an absolute blast doing it!

3) I went to the nursing home down the street from me and spent some time playing scrabble with the residents. I made a new friend named Mabel, and she reminded me of my grandma. She was the sweetest lady. I will definitely continue to volunteer there.

4) For my last Random Act of Kindness, I spent 24 hours volunteering at my local hospital.

This whole experience was an eye-opener for me and made me realize the importance of volunteering. Helping others was a rewarding experience and I feel like even though I was blessing other people I was far more blessed than they were.

I encourage you all to go out there and RAK someone!
