Nicole Kirby

Regional Representatives Manager

Nicole joined the Random Acts’ Outreach Department in 2019, later moving to support management of the Regional Representatives in 2020. She loves working with our inspiring representatives all around the world, and supporting them to spread kindness. 

Nicole has more than 20 years experience in the charity and non-profit sector, focusing on organizational development, project management and connecting with communities. Her current day job is with a cancer charity in the UK.  Nicole is also a co-founder and volunteer for a charity supporting bereaved parents. She lives in the north of England with her family and cat (the latter who likes to regularly join her for video conference calls).

If Nicole could have any superpower, she would choose the power to deliver hugs over the internet.

Rowan Meredith

Regional Lead, Canada – West

Rowan has been a Regional Representative for Random Acts since 2018, and Regional Lead for the Americas since 2019. She is based near Vancouver, BC (Canada), and loves doing local acts of kindness in communities all around BC. She is excited to spread kindness into the wider Canada (West) region.

Rowan has a B.A. in Slavic Studies from the University of Victoria, a J.D. from UCLA, and an LL.M. from Queen Mary University of London. She is a lawyer called to the bar in California and British Columbia.

In her spare time, Rowan enjoys playing with her dogs, reading, playing board games, and highland dancing.

If Rowan could have any superpower, she would choose telekinesis so that she could be more like her childhood hero, Matilda.

Jade Wardle

Regional Lead, UK – South and ROI

Jade joined Random Acts in 2018 as the UK South Regional Representative and during her time here has gone on to become the Regional Lead for Europe and the Rest of the World. She joined Random Acts after they helped her and she then wanted to influence others to spread acts of kindness in their own communities. Working with Random Acts is important to her because she gets to help others in need and sees the good it can do for people. Jade has a B.Sc. in Sport and Exercise Science and is now on a journey completely different from what her degree holds.

If Jade could have any superpower, it would be psychokinesis, or telekinesis a psychic ability allowing a person to influence a physical system without physical interaction.

Africa

Richard Coffie

Regional Representative, Africa

Richard Coffie is a people-oriented person who enjoys work that makes his community better.  He is a product of the University of Cape Coast and has previous volunteer experience working in community outreach and SME support. The motivating factor that drives him in his work with Random Acts is his desire to cause and inspire change.  In his free time, you can find him either watching football or at the beach.

If Richard could have any superpower, it would be interstellar travel.

ZAHRA DURRANI

Regional Representative, Pakistan

Zahra is a development economist, multi-disciplinary research professional, and a mom to one human and a dozen cats. She loves helping people and has been a volunteer for the most part of her life. She jumped at the opportunity of being a part of a global team at Random Acts that shared a common interest in making people smile with their kindness. When she is not networking with like-minded individuals, you will find Zahra with a camera, drinking her umpteenth cup of chai, or planning her next adventure!

If Zahra could have a superpower, she would choose to fly and be able to travel around the world and marvel over its beauty without having to worry about leaving a carbon footprint.

Cherry

Regional Representative, Asia

Cherry has always wanted to help others, and at Random Acts, she feels like she has found her people. Working here is important to her because she gets to help people out but doesn’t have to do it all by herself. When she isn’t busy planning world domination with kindness, she likes to swim, read books, bake, and then eat what she baked.

 If Cherry could have one superpower, it would be the ability to refill things: refill her wallet, refill her empty packet of chips, refill her enemies’ bladders all the time… you get the gist.

Australia

Natalie Fisher

Regional Representative, Australia East

Natalie F

Natalie has been with Random Acts since September 2018, and her first role with the organisation was the creation and relaunch of our monthly external newsletter for supporters. 

She is interested in baking, gardening, event and travel planning, queer issues, waste reduction, the impact of storytelling, and writing.

In addition to representing Random Acts in Australia, she creates content for the organization in the form of our Meet The Team interview articles. She also has 9 years experience in entertainment journalism, which is actually how she met the fine folks who encouraged her to apply for a role at Random Acts.

 If Natalie could have one superpower, it would be teleportation, as 99% of her closest family and friends live on different continents.

Kiri Lenagh-Glue

Regional Representative, New Zealand

kiri-lenagh-glue-375x400

Kiri has been with Random Acts since 2013, quickly finding that volunteering and social outreach were what made her tick. Random Acts gave her the perfect platform to interact with and give back to her community, and get other people excited and engaged. Kiri has just completed a triple degree in computer science and classics with first class honours. Throughout her time in higher education, she has been able to expand her experience in social outreach, leadership, and a life-threatening amount of procrastination baking.

 If Kiri could have one superpower, she would choose the power to twist time so as to fit in all the projects she would like to get done in a day.

Rebecca Guthrie

Regional Representative, Australia East

Rebecca G Fun-Headshot

Anna Katherine

Regional Representative, Canada

AnnaKatherine

Anna connected to the organization in spring 2020. She ardently adores the mission and is charmed to represent such a radiant community ― it is a sweet puzzle piece in her life. She wants to do her part alongside fantastic teammates to scatter brightness. It has been the greatest gift to see the circle blossom. She loves fresh brisk days and being in the rain and appreciates her notepad which is always adorned with scribbles. A chocolate connoisseur that has yet to try every kind. She hopes to one day acquire a meadow where llamas, sloths, and platypuses can roam in bliss chatting with the stars to see what they think of clouds.

BHUMIKA MAKWANA

Regional Representative, UK – South and ROI

AnnaKatherine

It all started from the ‘Blue Peter’ Bring & Buy sales in primary school and later with participating in charitable events at secondary school.  From a very early age, Bhumika always felt keenly that she wanted to give back to her community, and help in any way she could. She joined Random Acts in 2012 so that she could continue on this journey of kindness, and help those who needed it most in a more tangible way. Bhumika wholeheartedly believes that volunteering at Random Acts is an honour and privilege. She hopes to use her skills and expertise to make the world a better place. 

If Bhumika could have any superpower, she would choose the power of super healing, so that she can heal others in whatever way she can, and heal her clumsy self when required.

Holly Olsen

Regional Representative, US – Great Lakes

AnnaKatherine

Holly Olsen has been a regional representative with Random Acts since 2019.   Working at Random Acts is important to Holly because it gives her a way to be able to do more good in her community.  She embraces the notion that kindness builds hope, and that single acts of kindness can spread out around us to help make the world a better place.  In her spare time, Holly likes to aggressively convince her friends to participate in random acts of kindness and to slowly complete 5Ks in tutus.  Holly’s been a middle school English language arts teacher in the same large urban district since 1998, where curriculum creation is one of her passions. 

If she could have any super power, it would be invisible because, all evidence to contrary, she really is a quiet person. 

“Do what you can, where you can, to the extent that you can, because it may just be that your act of courage encourages someone else…” Desmond Tutu.
