Welcome to the September 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 two years. 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 August. 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 August.

Sign up! Make somebody's day!

I feel so incredibly honored and a little teary eyed that you guys nominated me to be the recipient of this months RAK attack. (I hope I am allowed to respond here) Until someone wrote this thread on the back of an envelope, I had NO idea what was going on- receiving these little 'packages' in the mail! I thought I owed cards that I forgot to mail out! lol (well, maybe I do, so be sure to tell me! lol)

ps...so who nominated me?? (the whole curiosity and cat thing) haha

Thank you everyone once again for this magical ATC month! It has been very appreciated! I hope I have reached out to each person that has been so generous, but if I forgot anyone, I am dreadfully sorry. Your generosity was not forgotten, just my memory playing games on me. I'm ready to pay it forward now for October!

10-01-2014, 02:52 PM
Just checking in. Waiting on the October Rak to be posted :D

10-01-2014, 09:20 PM

Thank you, Miss M and letterdiva!

We'll have the November RAK up tomorrow. Please note that we don't have access to Carole's permanent list so you'll all need to sign up for us this month. :)

Okay, okay, I'll admit it. I did not honor my September RAK commitment until TODAY when I posted my envelope. :eek: I won't even explain why I'm late BUT I've thought about Spoilt Pup every day since September. Sure hope that counts for something. :unsure:
