Welcome to the July 2014 RAK Attack!
victims info sent

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 nominations 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.)[/left]

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. (If you don't have anyone to nominate, that's OK, you can still play!)

3. I will PM you all with the address of the RAK recipient.

Expect to see this info around the 30 of June. 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 25th of June.

Sign up! Make somebody's day!

08-02-2014, 06:32 PM
Still something on the way from me, it's worrisome that it hasn't arrived yet because it had our postage stamp trades in it too :(

08-03-2014, 07:06 AM
Oh... I hope your letter is just taking a bit longer... if a letter is bigger, it can be caught up in the customs and it can take a while before they are sure there are no drugs in it. ;)

08-03-2014, 09:04 AM
Ok, yes, it is a larger envelope, so I hope that's it!

08-03-2014, 09:14 AM
There's an extra something coming in the mail for you AND your mom (with best wishes for a speedy recovery!). ;)

08-25-2014, 04:59 PM
Mine still hasn't arrived????? :(

08-25-2014, 05:05 PM
Beka, it has arrived! :D it came here safe and sound and with a sticker from the customs - like I said, the bigger letters are often held up there. :yes:
Thanks a lot, my dear! *feels RAKed* :wub:
