Calling all kindness heroes! Random Acts Annual Melee of Kindness (AMOK) is nearly upon us, and with just over a week to go, we thought we’d give you a few reminders on what we’ll be up to and how you, too, can get involved (because it’s going to be a blast… and you don’t want to miss out, right?).
Got queries? Keep reading for answers to a few of the most frequently asked questions.
What exactly is AMOK?
AMOK is a global day of kindness during which Random Acts encourages our supporters to get out, no matter who they are or where they are in the world, and perform random acts of kindness for their community. Whether that’s by giving to those in need or spreading a little early spring cheer, from year to year, our supporters continually impress us with their ability to make the world a better place.
So… how do I participate in AMOK?
It’s simple! On March 5, plan to spend the day getting kind for others. Your activity can be large or small and can range from a simple gesture, such as cooking a meal for a family in need, to the extravagant — like putting on a play for the kids in your local hospital. The most important thing? We want you to spend the day having a positive and meaningful impact on people’s lives, and showing others that kindness can make a difference.
What if I can’t think of anything to do?
If you need some help, visit our Facebook event page, where you can see what other people in your region are doing. You can also contact your Regional Representative who will be able to provide assistance if you need it. Still stuck on ideas? Check out our Kindness Files to see what others have done in the past!
What if I have a great idea, but can’t afford to do it?
That’s where we step in! If you need funding to complete your activity, let us know ASAP by filling in this form, and we’ll see what we can do.
I’m participating! How can I show others I’m running AMOK on social media?
Our amazing design team has created several banners and graphics that you can download or embed for your Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr profiles.
Can I send you photos and videos of my activity?
Yes, please! We love getting images and videos from our supporters. Make sure to fill in your AMOK participation form after you’re finished on March 5 or 6 and send us a description of your act, plus any photos or clips you’d like us to have at our disposal for future use! You could be featured in the Kindness Files!
