Random Acts Of Kindness Day 2022: Frankfort Neighbors Give Thanks

FRANKFORT, IL — Thursday is Random Acts of Kindness Day. Frankfort residents on social media are likely to see their feeds full of #MakeKindnessTheNorm, the theme for this year.

Patch asked Frankfort residents on Facebook, "What's the nicest thing a neighbor has done for you?" A few of the responses we got were so inspirational that we thought we'd share them with you, dear readers.

  • Bob Carroll: Helped my clean my driveway after a snowstorm.

  • Andrea Jawor: Brought me homemade chicken soup when I had Covid.

  • Kathy KB: Plow my driveway.

  • Brittany Lonergan: When I was taking care of my grandparents when covid first happened, my neighbor would cut my grass for me because I was gone all the time! Such a huge help! I am forever grateful to this day for all they did for me!

The Denver-based Random Acts of Kindness Foundation's first RAK Day was in 1995. The small nonprofit's initiative caught on, was celebrated in New Zealand by 2004 and has since been celebrated around the world as a way for people to show kindness to others in small, simple ways.

Random Acts of Kindness Day is observed on Feb. 17 every year, regardless of the day of the week.
