View Full Version : May 2010 RAK Attack!
04-26-2010, 01:52 PM
Welcome to the May 2010 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!

05-21-2010, 02:36 PM
Oh my gosh you all! I'm embarrassed :embarrassed: to be chosen the May Rak attack person! I didn't sign up this month because of my pending knee surgery and all I did was complain for two months how awful my knee ached. I know many more people deserve to be RAK'd but now that it is me ~ I'm thrilled! You people are just too nice. Bless you!
05-21-2010, 02:38 PM
My first RAKs today include:
Robin - A beautiful ATC of a Finch or Meadowlark
Just Ducky - two ATC's, "IT started with One Thread" and "Bluebird". Both darling.
Lkastello- a huge envelop full of ATC blanks, papers, alpha and numeral stick-ons, label stickers, ribbon, template designs and other bits and pieces. You people are all great!
05-21-2010, 06:33 PM
He, he, he, so glad we surprised you! Now you'll have new goodies to keep you busy while you recoup. :)
05-22-2010, 05:05 PM
Bluesybreeze sent me the two coolest ATC's - One of an Oklahoma US Route 66 sign and the other a beautiful building in Spain.
05-22-2010, 05:07 PM
Carole sent the neatest RAK ATTACK ATC, some water color paper, which I just ran out of (how did you know) and Micron pens. Mine were getting old and some dried up. You must have come to my house to see what I needed.....what a mind-reader! Thanks Carole for hosting this each month.
I'll be back to RAK someone else in June.
05-22-2010, 08:56 PM
Glad to hear the package arrived safely, and that you could use what I sent. :D

I feel so blessed. Received from Miss - two perfect ATC's - one of a lighthouse, the other tea cup. Both of my favorite things.
Mrubyjean sent a homemade book-mark with a tea theme and a lighthouse and seashore collage ATC. Great.
Thanks both of you.
06-09-2010, 04:34 PM
Gerry from the U.K. sent a package of woven mats (did you make those Gerry?), three fuzzy bears and great little fabric squares with animals and other characters on them. Thanks so much!
06-13-2010, 03:13 AM
Pleased you like the bits I sent, I didnt make the woven mats, but loved the colours and thought you would too. Im just sorry I didnt manage to send a card too but with my mum being in hospital for a month I got a bit behind with my card making, thankfully she is home now and looking lots better.
06-13-2010, 07:44 AM
Glad your mum is better and I liked the bits you sent. I didn't need an ATC too. Thanks.
06-14-2010, 01:09 PM
Golly, May's RAK Attack keeps on giving!!!
Today I received a darling pendent/purse from AlterMyWorld. Thank you so much!
06-14-2010, 11:04 PM
Pennyquilter cover your ears so you don't hear this...are they covered?....
:unsure: Carol, my package will be going out with tomorrow's mail
06-14-2010, 11:13 PM
Thank you PeaceHeart. :wubclub:
06-17-2010, 10:32 AM
My goodness! Peaceheart sent two groups of all-purpose cards with tea pots and cups, plus a teapot and tea cup button. Thank you so much!
06-17-2010, 10:33 AM
The mail man had to come to my door (our mailbox is at the street) and bring an over-sized package from Stellaluna! You hit everything I like - Fat Quarter of fabric, package of buttons and a cool book on the art of creative sewing with mixed-media. Thanks a bunch!
07-19-2010, 01:57 PM
I feel so bad. Stitching has not been on the top of my list of things to get finished lately so I am very far behind!
I have the card stitched finally. Now to get it backed, in an envelope and mailed. Going to try and get that done so they can be sent when I send out my swap returns.
Guess I am really extending the spreading the love concept.
07-19-2010, 08:16 PM
Thanks xstitcher. :wubclub:
07-21-2010, 12:12 PM
MY RAK is finally on the way!
