We shared random acts of kindness in memory of our little boy Frankie who died in his sleep aged 3. We hope to raise awareness of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood.

Day 35, 36 of 40 – Tues. Wed. #RandomActsOfKindness – Yesterday I took coffee to the business next door to me. Today my local coffee shop staff gave me an award! They gave me a card signed by morning staff – it read “to our most giving customer. Thank you for starting a wave of customers buying for each other! You put a smile on our faces too!” It blew me away!

I love helping others and live in a great community where I am very fortunate to have a group of lovely ladies that come together to help me. We work great as a team, having rallied together to help 12 families affected by a fire in September, taking in donations of clothes household items and toys. My garage is the central store and the community continue to give and now I take these donations to a local oragnisation that helps the homeless and those less fortunate. I have also recently started up a group for the Crisp Packet Project, I now have over 240 in the group in just over 2 months. We make “survival bags” containing a pillow & blanket made out of crisp packets, knitted hat and scarf, container for snacks and some toiletries all in a crisp packet shoulder bag. I received a lovely bouquet of flowers at the weekend from someone in the community with a note saying “Dear Gina, A random act of kindness to someone who is always very kind”.

Charlie’s helping his Mum clean the windows, as he has realised just how much she does for them all. His Mum has been diagnosed with long covid and is struggling with her recovery. This is so kind, and indicative of the lovely soul he has.

nnie has baked cup cakes for lots of different people.. he wants to give some of them to the bin men on Friday for all the hard work they do and also to family and close friends who are currently very poorly

Henry is moving house, so he made this trifle and wrote this card for his neighbour to say thank you! So sweet!

😊Jack (Y5) made a Valentines breakfast for his parents to show kindness in his home this week!

Students in our building secretly made hearts with a kind message written on them. These hearts were then secretly taped inside/outside of the teacher’s classrooom for them to find!

Season 3 of my #RAKChallenge ends with the following act which I did on 31st of Decemeber 🙂

#RAKChallenge, Day- 31
I save some money in this coin box to give it to some homeless person at the end of the year. I saw a senior citizen begging on the streets for a couple of times and thought of giving the money to her this year. But I don’t know about her whereabouts. However, I carried this coin box hoping to meet her. And suddenly she showed up out of nowhere😊. Venkatamma has a son but he doesn’t take care of her so she ended up begging on the streets. After greeting her, I requested her to sit and empty this bottle. When she saw money in the wooden bottle, she was confused, surprised. Once she’s done emptying, she placed it on her forehead for a while like honoring it or something 😊
Well, that’s all for this year’s #RAKChallenge guys. This is just to challenge myself and to demonstrate how simple and easy to do some little things for others around us within out busy schedules and less money (or no money).
The biggest challenge I face during this challenge is to capture those moments and writing about it. Sometimes it’s difficult to click pictures and then put those moments in words. I often feel I could have said it better or the picture could have been better because it’s very difficult to convey these wonderful experiences in pictures and words. One must experience it to know how wonderful it feels😊
Thank you everyone for sending your love through messages and writing kind words after reading all these stories. I feel great if any of these ideas inspire you to do your bit whenever it is possible.
Love you and God bless you all
