Welcome to the November 2020 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 nominations through private messages sent by you. Please try to send the real name/user name of the ATCsforALL member and their address (if available) when you sign up. (Please one nominee, per person.) (If you don't have anyone to nominate, that's OK, you can still play!)

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 hand made 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 30th of October. 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 October.

Sign up! Make somebody's day!

(If you would like to be automatically added to the monthly list of RAK players every month, please send me a PM.)

I would like to sign up, please

Ps......Someone just sent me a rack last month I have not thanked her yet but I have really enjoyed using her scraps. Iím trying to remember who that was. Is it possible I could get a list of people who signed up and be sure that I have thanked all of them?

Monroy, it's good to post to the thread when you mail so the victim can leave a You Rock for you if they want.

An update, if you are interested.
I get my 3rd chemo tomorrow and it is projected surgery to remove all my girl parts in DEC. I wasnt using most of them anyyay.

Great news is that My test results indicate I am beating the ovarian cancer. A healthy non cancerous person has a CA125 of 35 or under. My Initial test was 1880 (in AUG), and 2443 before my first chemo (SEPT). Last week after my 2nd chemo the test was 356 (OCT), So a lost of 2087 points. Which indicates I am beating the cancer. It is dying.

My next test will be next week or the week after, They only do it every 3 weeks. But will do it before the surgery to see if I am ready.
