Welcome to the June 2011 RAK Attack!

A RAK is a Random Act of Kindness, and a RAK Attack is this group of participants mailing some sort of surprise to a ‘victim’ who is selected by vote through private messages sent by you. Please try to send the name/user name of the ATCsforALL member and their address (if available) when you sign up. (Please one nominee, per person.)

This is not a popularity contest it is simply our small way of spreading cheer in our little community. This particular RAK is intended for members of ATCsforAll. If you have friends in need of a RAK feel free to open a new thread and let us know, there's always someone to step up and contribute.

One person per month, not the same person in a year. A list is maintained to assure no repeats. If you nominate someone who is ineligible I will send you a private message to send in alternate nominations. The RAK host (me) cannot be RAKed.

Who to nominate and why?

Any member who is going through a rough time and could use a smile, who has been especially helpful or accommodating, the victim does not have to be a participant in the monthly RAK, just any member of ATCsforAll.

What to Send On a RAK Attack

Anything Goes: ATCs, Arty bits, cards, Handwritten written wishes on handmade or pretty stationary, Envies, Handmade stationary for gift, Candy, cookies, Stickers, Books, Artwork, Encouraging words, Poetry, favorite quotes. You decide what to send based on how much time you have and what your budget is, look to the supplies you already have and all it will cost you is a stamp.


How Do I participate?:

1. Post in this thread to sign up

2. PM me one member nomination and their address, if you have this info, it is extremely helpful. This information is always kept secret from the participants so do not ask.

3. I will PM you all with the address of the RAK recipient.
Expect to see this info around the 15th-20th of the month. You can only receive this information from the host (me) so please do not ask others.

This is a surprise! Please do not tell the RAK recipient-let them find out in the mail.

Please PM me if you have any questions.

Remember, the RAK is to bring a smile to somebody and show them we care.

All participants welcomed! Nominations accepted until the 14th of the month.


Sign up! Make somebody's day!

I'm new I just joined today, not that long ago. This seems like such a great site. I was browsing around for other ATC artists and came across this site. I know I don't know anyone but I think this is a great idea. I would like to send something out anyway.

I have my stuff all packaged and ready to be sent tomorrow. Do you want a delivery confirmation number or some sort of proof of sending it? my first time doing this so I thought I'd ask. I don't know if posting a number on here would be a good idea because it will give the final destination, I could PM it to the board maker.

I hope they enjoy it. :)
my roomies thought I had gone crazy when I started rummaging through my crafting supplies seeing what would go well together trying to get a mix of things because I'm not sure what they need or can use. I figure if I would like it, the RAK person would enjoy it.
I think they thought I was giving up crafting or something.. poor roomies.

Carole Cadek

Crystal, you can do a delivery confirmation to track your package personally.
It's not necessary to post it in the thread, and your right it's better if you don't.

Than you! ;)
