Welcome to the January 2021 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 31th of December. 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 December.

Sign up! Make somebody's day!

:wubclub: Y'all... I started getting some random things in the mail a week or two ago. I thought it was odd, but didn't stop to really think it over for a bit because my entire world has been a bit upside down (and sideways) since the end of August, and quite honestly I haven't been able to think very clearly lately. My dad got sick around the end of August & I was burning the candle at both ends (& in the middle, too) taking care of him & his household along with mine & the busy season at work. I lost my mom back in 2012, so he was alone & needed a hand. Well... he was a lot sicker than he let on. We lost him in early November... and then 5 days later, I had a NSTEMI heart attack (SCAD: Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection), brought on by stress. They called it Broken Heart Syndrome.

To make a long story short, 2020 ended like a nightmare & I'm glad to see it gone. I'm most likely looking at getting an internal defibrillator implanted surgically soon because the damage to my heart looks permanent. 2021 is going to be all about slowing down & healing, whether I like it or not.

Thank you all for the thoughts & prayers & all of the sweet cards, art & bits of love. It really means a lot to me right now & brings a bit of light to my day (I do not sit still y'all, this is driving me NUTS!!!). I have a whole stack of envelopes here (now that it has dawned on me what I'm looking at LOL) & I'm slowly working my way through opening them.

Thank you all again!
