Announcing #RACKWEEK (Dec. 10 – 16, 2017)
During the week of December 10 – 16, I am inviting you to join me in Random Acts of Christmas Kindness (R.A.C.K.).
If you have been around here for a while, you are familiar with our annual RACKWEEK fun. Each year the members of our Merry Little Christmas Project community dedicate a week to blessing unsuspecting people in need of some encouragement and hope during Christmastime. I love seeing the creative and beautiful ideas our community comes up with.
Here are a few of the ways we have RACK’ed in the past:
Leaving free Redbox codes on our local Redbox. (You can use this printable to make your own!)
Leaving quarters in vending machines and at the local laundromat.
A free hot cocoa stand in our neighborhood
Here are a few ways that MLCers have gotten involved in years past:
- giving candy cane fudge to those who were having a hard time
- paying for the family’s meal in the drive-through behind them
- paying for a lonely woman’s meal while out to eat
- leaving money on vending machines in hospital waiting rooms
- handing out candy to cashiers in the mall
- holding a bake sale to fund a youth group RACK attack
and much more.
Giving is always fun – but even more fun is knowing that we are a part of community of people focused on giving, isn’t it? That’s why I’d like to invite you to join me for a Random Acts of Christmas Kindness Week during the week of December 10– 16, 2017.
Joining is easy. At some point during the week, find a way to be kind to someone who doesn’t expect it. We’ll be sharing our R.A.C.K.’s (Random Acts of Christmas Kindness) over on The Merry Little Christmas Project Facebook page. You can just leave a comment on the wall sharing how you found joy in giving this week or wait until Saturday when we’ll do one big Facebook comment thread celebrating our GIVING this week.
You can find free printables for your RACK attack here.
Even better, post a picture of your RACK along with the hashtag #RACKWEEK on Facebook or Instagram! (Follow me on Instagram here.)
No matter what, let’s just pass on some kindness to those who need, shall we? Leave a comment if you are up for the challenge!
