A random act of kindness is defined as a selfless act performed by a person or a group wishing to either assist or to cheer up an individual–be kind, thoughtful , use your manners, give out compliments, volunteer , and/or forgive someone.  The upcoming holiday season proposes a very appropriate time to be kind to one another.

How often do you partake in a random act of kindness?  It is so vitally important to be compassionate to others because you, yes you, have the untamed power to make someone else happy!  In this day and age, teenage students can be so cruel to one another.  What would happen if instead of putting down someone, you lift him up and become a friend to him? Not only will you impact someone’s life, but, whether you know it or not, you will actually be bettering your own life.

Here’s a short list of Possible RAK:

  • Smiling–yes, we all could do more of that!
  • Random Hugs for friends who seem down
  • Sticky notes with positive messages on mirrors in the restroom
  • Include everyone in a group conversation
  • Say thank you to a janitor, secretary, lunch lady, teacher, or principal
  • Befriend a lonely person
  • Compliment someone
  • Hold the door open for someone
  • Be encouraging
  • Be patient
  • Recognize the good in others–it’s there!
  • Forgive the person who offended you YEARS ago
  • Write notes of appreciation 

The Bark challenges you to do as many random acts of kindness that you can for the betterment of our school and our community.  The reward will be making someone else happy, and that alone should make you smile.
