Giving Thanks Around the World

RA_Christmas-01Dearest supporters,

We are so grateful for the love you show us everyday. Your examples of kindness and generosity in your communities are astounding and inspire us all to be better. In fact, this holiday season, we’ve prepared a plethora of projects and events to show our gratitude for your efforts and to give you a behind the scenes look at what goes on here at Random Acts.

  • As we recently announced, we are currently participating in the CrowdRise Giving Tower Holiday Challenge and we’re asking you to join our team and help us raise some funds (and spirits)! Find out more on how you can help us and dozens of our fellow nonprofits build a tower to the moon (or Saturn… or Pluto).
  • In the coming days, we’ll be updating you on the situation in Haiti as well as revealing a very special surprise….
  • Keep an eye on our blog here: starting next week, we’ll be presenting you with some heartwarming stories from our very own staffers, just in time for the holidays.

We are so thankful for everything that you do. When we say that change happens one random act of kindness at a time, we mean it — because we’ve seen it. We’ve seen you touch lives by baking dozens and dozens of cookies for neighbors, by handing out balloons to your students, and by noticing others in your community that needed a boost in their day. You’ve taken time out of your lives to travel overseas and support those who needed an extra pair of helping hands. You’ve left kind notes for others and watched them travel from person to person and helped families bridge the gap for much needed hospital visits.

Today, we want you to remember how much you’ve done to change things around the world, whether you know it or not. You are important. Take a few moments to tell someone you love how much you appreciate their efforts as well, because all around you, people are busy being kind and doing a little bit of good. Reach out to them and let them know you care. Thank them for being as positive and as hopeful as we know that you already are — the world can always use a little bit more love, anyway.

Thank you for all that you do… have a wonderful weekend!

— The staff at Random Acts
