Random Acts of Kindness Challenge

I just ran into the dollar store to buy a card for a friend, and grabbed a few items for school. 

I can't seem to ever leave Target, Hobby Lobby, the dollar store, or any store for that matter without grabbing something for school. 

The man behind me in line asked if I was a teacher when he saw the items I had in my hands. 

 He then proceeded to buy the items for me. 

 I started crying, gave him a hug, and told him I would pass this act of kindness on. I’m truly humbled.

Tomorrow I'm going to share this story with my class and their families and challenge them to do something kind for someone else.  I'd like to challenge you to do the same.

 It could be as simple as taking carts in at the store, offering to mow a neighbors lawn, taking handmade cards to the hospital, calling someone, making cookies for a friend, or spending some time volunteering in a nursing home or animal humane society.  I want to hear your story.

Please comment below about what you're doing and then make sure to enter the raffle.

That's all you have to do.  I'll end the giveaway on October 14th (my birthday). 

My wish for my birthday is that these acts of kindness continue to be passed on endlessly. 

Please share with friends and family.  You don't have to be a teacher to enter; you just have to do a kind deed for someone else. I can’t wait to read about all of your RAKs.   

Easy Peasy Mac and Cheesy


  1. Melissa,
    You are a sweetheart--always thinking about others. Hope your day is a great one and I am giving hugs and kisses to Chloe, Marley, and Izzy for you.

  2. My husband and I made some homemade corn chowder and invited two other people to come over for dinner.
    Thanks for the opportunity.
    I'm heading to the Dollar Store tomorrow! :)
