Changing the world one random act of kindness at a time.

Welcome to our Random Acts September newsletter. This month, we have news on how being kind impacts your brain, according to science. We also bring you updates on how Random Acts’ staff and supporters helped kids during back-to-school time in places as diverse as Seattle and Ghana. And we’re inviting you to take the initiative and bring kindness to kids and families in need. 
Have a fantastic month!

Become Involved: Helping Families and Children in Crisis

Many local organizations help families and children in need. One of our RA staff members, Lisa, donated to one of them – the Crisis Nursery Coalition of Illinois. It provides a 24-hours 7-days-a-week child care network for families in crisis. Do you want to help children in your own community? Apply for an act to get started!
