Here at Hostway, we believe one of our essential roles is as a catalyst of growth and prosperity in our communities. This year, we’re taking another new step as a leader in our society, participating in Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Week.
What is RAK? Random Acts of Kindness week is celebrated internationally every February. It’s spearheaded by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, which encourages volunteers to step out of their normal routine or comfort zone and attempt a new random act of kindness each day.
Leading up to RAK Week, volunteers challenge friends, family and audiences to attempt random acts of kindness and then post and share their experiences on social media to spread the message.
These acts of kindness can be as creative or outlandish as participants please; the RAK Foundation has a collection of kindness ideas for those who need a jump-start. Ideas include offering to work late to help out a colleague, letting a driver merge on the freeway, or buying dessert for a stranger.
In recognition of Random Acts of Kindness Week, Hostway employees and staff will be going into their communities to spread kindness and cheer through their own acts of kindness. Numerous employees have volunteered from every corner of the Hostway community and are currently brainstorming ways to give back with their teams.
On Monday, February 17, Hostway employees from Vancouver, Chicago, Austin, Denver, Dallas, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, San Antonio and Sofia, Bulgaria, will gather with their teams to perform their random acts of kindness, and will share their experiences that week via social media.
