Random Acts Of Kindness Day
Each year on 17th February, National Random Acts of Kindness Day grows in popularity. It is celebrated by individuals, groups and organisations nationwide to encourage acts of kindness.
The movement of Random Acts of Kindness inspires people every day. As a favourite celebration for many, people everywhere are enjoying doing these acts of kindness. Not only do the acts of kindness bring joy to the receiver, but they spread positive reactions to the giver, too!
Have a RAKtivist® Challenge
The student who stops to hold the door open for a teacher with their hands full? The student who offers their bus seat to an elderly passenger? Anyone who believes kindness can change our community for the better, and demonstrates kindness with behaviour and generosity as much as with their words—they’re a RAKtivist. Set up a challenge in your classroom for the week and see just how kind everyone can be.
What is digital citizenship and how can it be used to ensure kindness online?
What happens when people are kind to each other? How can this make our community stronger, safer, more resilient?
