What is AMOK?

AMOK stands for the Annual Melee of Kindness. In past years, it’s been a global day of kindness that got people all over the world out into their communities committing whatever random act of kindness they wanted. This year, AMOK is going to look a little different, but it will still bring people together to do good!

Because now we’re partnering with our very strange cousin, gishwhes! AMOK will now be an item on that infamous scavenger hunt list, directing people to complete a specific task and document it in order to earn points. Since it’s Random Acts, you know the item will spread kindness, and since it’s gishwhes, you know it’ll be a lot of fun. But, don’t worry, you don’t have to be registered for gishwhes in order to take part!

This sounds like a great idea! What do I need to do?

We’re going to virtually graffiti the world! Any time between now and Friday, August 11, 2017, use a GPS tracking app (like Figure Running or similar), walk, jog, or run as large a path as you can to spell out a message of love, hope, or kindness. As you go, stop and perform acts of kindness and document them. You must show us the map with coordinates at the end of your path, as well as the minimum of 3 documented acts of kindness.

Post what you do to your twitter and use the hashtag #AMOKRA, so everyone can see the amazing, kind things you’re doing! At the end of the week, we’ll pick three people at random for a special surprise!

So get out there, run AMOK, and wow us with kindness!
