We are so thankful for all of the support and donations for the RAK Roadtrip, which has raised $5,000-- more than I even dreamed possible! We are almost two weeks into our trip and we are having so much fun RAKing as we go along. You can keep up with our RAKs here: www.RAKRoadtrip.com
I am so grateful for everyone who has donated! This morning I put out a message that we are only $290 from $1,000 (which would be amazing to be able to reach in September!) and an hour later, we are now only $170 away!
The kindness that you're showing in order to allow me to spread the love is inspiring. Thank you so much!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who has donated thus far! I have a huge update for you...
Here's the deal-io: If I raise $250 for my RAK Roadtrip in the month of September, Allison Beers (my amazing boss) is going to match that and donate another $250. That's $500 to be used for random acts of kindness! $500 to spread good cheer and help other people enjoy life a little bit more. Essentially, it's perfect and awesome and my excitement is not containable (It's normally not anyways, but now it's just extra obnoxious)!!!
Help spread the news so we can spread a whole lot of joy!
A Bit of an Overview: I
have been saving every penny I receive and am saving up to go on a road trip
with my boyfriend, Dan, in the months of November and December, 2013. We are
living frugally, camping out and making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as
much as possible, and are planning on completing a route around the USA by
December 20th... Mexico is a possible wildcard.
Where You Come In:
While I was brainstorming other
ways that I could still assist those in need, Random Acts of Kindess, aka "RAK"-ing
became increasingly more and more popular (which is awesome. So so awesome.)
... I almost threw in a
"RAK"-ing my brain pun here, but I resisted(Kind of).
I became involved in
"RAK"-ing in my own community by doing simple things like paying a
stranger's parking ticket or paying for a fellow bar-goer's beer before I left
the taproom.... but I realized that I could do a lot more and spread joy
throughout the entire USA...or at least to the states that I pass through in
the map above. Performing acts of kindness has been a part of my life for as
long as I can remember- I was brought up to understand that being nice to
others is not something that I should have to force, but rather that it should
Therefore, I want to commit
Random Acts of Kindness all throughout my road trip and I want them to be
meaningful. I plan on getting to know individuals in each place I stop, finding
a group/ individual/ community/family etc. that deserves a pick-me-up and then
making their day. Whether it be helping to pay for a child's daycare that day, putting
some money towards a dog's surgery, or even just purchasing dance lessons for
someone who would never buy them for themselves, but has always wanted to try.
I want to show the nation the
impact that RAKing can have for in a big way, but I need your help.
So, I am asking my friends,
family, strangers, anyone who doesn't fall into those categories to sponsor my
road trip by donating to my gofundme page. Every last penny of which will be
spent on Random Acts of Kindness. None of the donations will go towards any
other part of my road trip, which will all be funded by my own personal
savings. Whether you are able to donate $1.00 or $100.00, you are helping to
make an impact!
