View Full Version : August 2011 RAK Attack!
07-28-2011, 09:20 AM
Welcome to the August 2011 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!

Hi RAK Attackers,
I was completely surprised and delighted this morning! I brought in my mail delivered yesterday while I was out of town and discovered two RAK attack gifts from 1artlady and Robin! WOW!
Thanks 1ArtLady for the little green notebook and one of my favorites, a green Pentel Sunburst gel pen!
Thanks Robin for the lovely two tone zentangle!
Thank you both for wonderful RAK surprises! And thanks to whoever asked you all to RAK me! I'm just sitting here typing and grinning.

Hi August RAK happiness offerers,
Thanks for more thoughtful and fun raks from mrubyjean, rubyopaltones, mrsalderman, hidden treasures. You all sent amazing atc's, postcards, a tiny palette, atc blanks and fun papers, postcards, bookmark.
I appreciate each of you for your kindness. Since so many of you sent art supplies for atc's I did want you to know I haven't stopped painting through this challenging and painful series of events. I have painted 175 art journal pages in the last 11 months. So I am painting my way along this grief path. But these pieces, somehow I didn't want to enter into the playfulness of atc trading. I am sure you understand. And I am sure that I'll get back to trading atc's within the next several months. I trust inner resilience and the kind support of so many people like you all here. I appreciate all of you very much.
09-25-2011, 05:42 PM
It's extremely late, but one more (mine) is finally headed out on Monday. So sorry for the delay.
09-25-2011, 11:58 PM
Thank you Stellaluna. ;)
10-19-2011, 12:18 PM
More thank you to August RAK attackers,
Thanks to Stellaluna, Galzart, Gerry, Wil, and Lorien.
all your kind good wishes have been wonderful to receive. Thank you for that and for the great atc's, supplies for making atc's, book on art journaling, canvas, dried flowers, pencil, and faith charm.
I have been touched by all your good hearts. Thank you.
10-22-2011, 02:08 PM
Thank you Carole,
A journal and great pens arrived! This RAk has been such a kind blessing. thank you for hosting this monthly. I am sure the other RAK recipients are also really touched by this showering of kindness. In the near future I'll be doing atc trading again and I will be sure to join in on some of the RAK attacks for cheering up other people going through life changing events.
