“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

We're looking for students in grades 6-8 who would like to join RAKtivists -- a world-wide movement which practices Random Acts of Kindness. On the first or second Tuesday of every month we'll do something nice and think of ways to spread kindness and put smiles on people’s faces. We'll bake cookies for a senior living community, make dog and cat toys for animal shelters, decorate gingerbread houses for local agencies, read to the elderly and more.  

Dates: 10/3, 11/14, 12/5, 1/9, 2/6, 3/6, 4/3, & 5/1. Full season’s commitment is highly encouraged.  Sponsored by the John & Patricia Curran Teen Fund. Registration required. Register online or call 203-762-6342.
