Go Above and Beyond During Random Acts of Kindness Week

There are plenty of ways to spread joy in Carrollwood during RAK week.

Smile at 10 strangers. Let someone go ahead of you in line. Reach out to someone you haven't talked to in a while. Volunteer.

Those are just some of the ideas suggested to mark Random Act of Kindness Week, Feb. 11- 17.

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation encourages kindness to others 365 days a year, but this week the goal is to go "above and beyond to make others feel special," according to the foundation's website.

In Carrollwood and Northdale, you can sign up to volunteer with the Carrollwood Northdale Area Community Organization

Big or small, kindness begets kindness.

Tweet your random act of kindness stories with hashtag #rakweek to be featured on the foundation's website. You also can post it on the RAK Facebook page.

And of course, we at Patch want to share your acts of kindness with your Carrollwood and Northdale neighbors. Share your stories in the comments below to inspire others to brighten someone else's day.
