View Full Version : December 2010 RAK Attack!
11-27-2010, 10:49 AM
Welcome to the December 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!

Okay! You guys are wonderful! Thank you thank you! It's so nice to have firends care! I haven't been on much, but want you all to k know how much it's appreciated and that I miss you and think about you! Jokenly, my hubby asked what he is supposed to do with everything when I'm gone. I told him to go through my AFA Address book and send a bit of this and that to each of yoU! (We are trying to keep humor up during this seriousness.) You have to be positive and not let emotions get you down!
Thank you, thank you again! You have helped me so much during this time.
01-10-2011, 08:39 AM
HUGS!!! And LOVE to you, Debby!
