Random Acts of Kindness cards are sweeping the nation!


There are people out there putting money in vending machines and then quickly walking away. On purpose.


Others are asking strangers to cut in front of them in line but it’s all part of the game.

The “RAK Initiative” is a card game that’s the ultimate reminder that random daily moments and interactions with strangers can be a lot of fun.

It’s the ultimate way to mix up your day and challenge yourself.

“Sometimes you interact with people, sometimes you do a nice thing, sometimes you make art. You may have to find someone who provided great service, and then give them an extra-nice tip. Or you may have to approach the first person who makes you smile and give them the card that tells them so. Or maybe you have to give someone a card without them even knowing you gave it to them!”

Sometimes you gotta be sneaky and do things without people knowing it was you. That’s how the “RAK cards” work. You never know if the person you gave a card to at that coffee shop will pass it on to someone else, or rather, play it forward.

The game has come a long way.

What started as a simple idea to try an better one persons day, has turned into a global event carried out by millions of people. The ‘RAK initiative’ is all about giving back & helping those in need.

It all started on 1 February 2014 when Brent Lindeque, a young South African, turned the reckless drinking game Neknominations on its head – by using his nomination to instead perform a random act of kindness.

By giving a homeless man a R20 meal, and using the power of social media to “pay-it-forward” his nomination went viral and to date has been featured locally on Carte Blanche, Espresso, 5Fm, eNCA, News24, Radio702 and internationally on Mashable, Huffington Post, CNN, BBC, Sky News, Oprah and even Ellen Degeneres to name a few.

It’s 100% free which means all you have to do is visit the site, download the RAK Pack or even create your own! Plus you can download them and send online, making the game accessible everywhere!

It’s a game that turns everyday life into a game of sharing fun and happiness.

“We get into our day-to-day grind and it can get so boring and repetitive that we barely look up to see what’s actually going on around us. RAK initiative cards can definitely make your day more interesting or enhance a conference or party that’s already awkward to begin with. Might as well mix it up!”

It’s fun to get excited and be pulled out of your comfort zone sometimes — not to mention be surprised with random acts of kindness.

I think Sneaky Cards does all those things quite beautifully and can even make for a good story (or several of them).

Getting to know one another (and ourselves!) helps to expand our minds and be our very best. It may even make someone’s day.
