Random Acts of Kindness Week 2013

February 11th, 2013 12:50 pm

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” -Aesop

This year Random Acts of Kindness Week is Mon 11-Sun 17 Feb. Last year we didn’t have much time to plan as we learned about Random Acts of Kindness Week once the activities had already begun, so this year we really wanted to take advantage of the head start. We planned to pass out goody bags and cards throughout Birmingham. On Monday due to the weather we scaled back our plans a bit and just went to nearby places around Newtown Shopping Centre and One Stop Shopping Centre in Perry Barr. Unfortunately our camera stopped working so we don’t have any images of actually giving the bags out. On Tuesday the Marketing Department shared the samples we get from promotional gift companies (pens, pencils, post-its, CDs, pedometer, keychains, magnets, etc). On Wednesday we sent gold stars to our colleagues around the office and we also shared stars on Facebook and Twitter to recognise a  job well done. On Thursday we randomly selected someone on Facebook to win a CD. Throughout the week colleagues have been pitching in to clear a storage space at The Drum and this culminates on Friday.

If you want to join in the fun you can find some inspiring ideas on our Pinterest board.

Let us know how you participate either in the comments below, on our Facebook page, or on Twitter use the hashtag: #rakweek .

See a few prep images on Facebook.

    We’ve already had one report of #rakw being paid forward. We took a Nationwide taxi to One Stop and gave the driver a few goody bags to share with his colleagues. The same driver came to pick us up and he mentioned that he gave a bag to a passenger that he had picked up after he dropped us off the first time.
