RAK Contest.....

A mom on another board I'm on is doing this and I think its a great idea!  The "prize" will vary depending on if the winner is a female or male..lol. 


**I have decided to make this a WEEK long contest so that being said you can choose to do either 5 of the things below or 3 below and 2 of your own.  Either way PLEASE let me know if your are participating!!  The contest will end Nov.14th! Thanks**

WHAT'S 'RAK' : Random Acts of Kindness

CONTEST RULES :
Very simple :
1) Complete every 'RAK' task below.
2) As you do them, please come here and tell us the story.
3) The first person to complete all the tasks will get a little RAK of their own in the mail. (I'll announce the winner and ask them to pm me their address)

TO MAKE MY JOB EASIER : when you complete another RAK, please keep track as a comment on THIS blog post (as on tally) BUT when your done with them all, it is still your responsibility to let me know! 

1) Smile at a stranger (preferably someone who looks like they need it)
2) Buy a coffee (or other beverage, or sandwich, or donut, or whatever) for the person behind you in a fast-food restaurant line (my personal favorite is to do it in a drive-through!)
3) Pay for someone’s parking (if you walk by a parking meter that’s out of time, for example!)
4) Send a pizza to a hospital nursing station/police station/fire station
5) Let a car into traffic ahead of you
6) Mow your neighbor’s lawn while you are doing your own (or if you are a fellow Canadian shovel your neighbor’s driveway or walk-way!)-IF you can't do this you can take your neighbor a baked good or write them a nice note!
7) Send a handwritten letter to your best friend (or a family member) telling them how much they are appreciated.
8 ) Leave a generous tip and write a THANK YOU on your receipt
9) Give your spouse a back or foot rub
10) Next time you receive good service, call the company to let them know (or fill out a comment card)
11) Do a chore for someone (their laundry, vacuum their floor…etc!)
12) Offer to babysit for a friend who needs a night away from the kids
13) Make a charitable donation (any amount, any charity) – no need to post the amount here…
14) Pick up litter on the street (or park)
15) Help a stranger carry groceries or other bags to their car
16) Make your family (or just your spouse) breakfast in bed
17) Tell a mother in your life what your admire about her mothering
18) Call up a family member you haven’t spoken to in years (or in weeks :D ) and catch up
19) Buy a hot beverage or meal for a street person
20) YOUR CHOICE!!
