Kickstart March’s month of kindness with the #RAKChallenge!

This proactive and positive initiative focuses on random acts of kindness for anyone, anywhere.

Are you ready to accept the #RAKChallenge?

Help spread kindness throughout the whole month of March and beyond! The Collaborative Youth Team of Illinois challenges you to perform as many acts of kindness as possible within the community, post it on social media, and challenge others to join you in the #RAKChallenge because Kindness Matters.

Can you hold the door open for someone whose hands are full? Can you compliment someone on their outfit or style? Invite someone to lunch? Pick up litter in your neighborhood? The answer is YES — you can spread kindness!

The Challenge Instructions


  • Document yourself performing or explaining via video, picture, or writing/status update the Random Acts of Kindness that you partook in or experienced


  • Challenge others by tagging an individual or organization to take the #RAKChallenge


  • Make sure to use hashtag #RAKChallenge in your post
