Serve the com­mu­nity through Random Acts of Kind­ness Mo­ments


Serve Daily has re­cently launched a new pro­gram called Random Acts of Kind­ness Mo­ments, or RAKM. This pro­gram is an ef­fort to en­cour­age Utah County res­i­dents to serve and show kind­ness to­ward their neigh­bors.

Many are fa­mil­iar with the term Random Acts of Kind­ness. The RAKM pro­gram takes Random Acts of Kind­ness and adds an ad­di­tional as­pect: Mo­ments. By plac­ing the “M” at the end, Serve Daily seeks to en­cour­age and per­pet­u­ate mem­o­rable mo­ments that brighten lives.

Through the RAKM pro­gram, lo­cal res­i­dents are asked to pick up a hand­ful of the new RAKM cards now avail­able at a va­ri­ety of busi­nesses in south­ern Utah County. These cards come in five dif­fer­ent de­signs and in­clude in­spi­ra­tional mes­sages and art­work and pho­tos by artists Ed Helmick, Stephen Par­sons and Jon McNaughton.

RAKM pro­gram par­tic­i­pants then choose a tar­get for their RAKM and per­form their act of ser­vice, leav­ing their RAKM card to en­cour­age that per­son to pay it for­ward with their own RAKM.

These RAKM’s can range from smil­ing or say­ing “hello” to vol­un­teer­ing at the lo­cal food pantry, bring­ing in a neigh­bor’s trash can, writ­ing a note or ap­pre­ci­a­tion or pick­ing up lit­ter on the street.
