RAK

I really don’t know what’s gotten into me with this selfless acts thing. 

For those of you unfamiliar, there is an online community called Ravelry.  It kind of like a Facebook thing for yarn crafters.  I spend far too much time on this site.  Heh.   There are a few groups for RAKs, (Random Acts of Kindness) within this site.  You can post a wishlist and give the moderator your address (privately).  Then if someone has the things you need/want, or just wants to buy it for you, they do.  Then you get it.  It’s seriously that simple.  I’ve given gifts to a couple different people now. 

 Today, I put together about a dozen blank greeting/note cards with stickers and little handwritten notes, and then included an inspirational quote.  Then received random addresses from the moderator and sent them off.

I guess I’ve kinda been going a bit nuts with this.  Heh.  But I received a very nice gift from someone else and it just felt so wonderful, I felt compelled to do the same.

Wouldn’t it be fun to have a massive RAK for the world?  Some universal site for this?  Who knows, maybe there already is one somewhere.
