As the name suggests, the day encourages people to do a kind thing for someone else. These acts can be for someone close to you, someone you barely know, or a total stranger. Taking part in RAOK not only spreads joy to receivers, but also has positive effects on the givers too – doing something nice for others is very uplifting.
To get involved, our MIIndful Wellbeing Supporters did various acts for other people, including (but not limited to) making and delivering handmade gifts to friends and colleagues, sending Thunderball tickets to neighbours, delivering flowers, sending fruit and veg boxes to local soup kitchens and donating to local food banks.

National Random Acts of Kindness Day (RAOK) took place on 17 February and this year, the Insurance Institute of Manchester decided to get involved.
