Taken over by #Kindness
Small acts of kindness are sweeping South Africa and all you have to do to get involved is be kind! #RAK16 #FLTweets— Brent Lindeque, Good Things Guy
On Wednesday 17th from 1- 3 pm, Lead SA handed over their Twitter account to Brent Lindeque, Lead SA Hero for February 2015 and founder of #RAK - Random Acts of Kindness.
In 2014 Brent received a Nek nomination- a dangerous drinking game whereby your friends could nominate you to consume alcohol and perform tasks. He decided to flip the nomination on it's head and turn it into something for good instead; he chose to perform a random act of kindness, and gave a homeless person food at a traffic light (watch the video here) before proceeding to nominate his friends to do the same in 24 hours.
I thought to myself; I can either do what everybody else is doing, or I could do nothing- or I could change one thing and start a viral trend among my friends.— Brent Lindeque, Good Things Guy
By breaking this global trend he launched a world wide trend for performing random acts of kindness and this year #RAK16 was no different.
We asked Brent to take control of our twitter handle for a few hours to share the amazing stories coming out of this year's initiative. In case you missed it, here are some of our favorites!
