Today, Wednesday, May 12th, we are hosting another RRBC “JAN HAWKE” RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS DAY!
For many of you who knew Jan Hawke, you instantly knew after only one interaction with her that she was a kind and very generous soul. She always offered her time and resources to help everywhere, everyone, and in any way that she could.
We honor Jan by showing that she left her mark on us in a big way and that we, too, can be kind and generous without expecting anything in return.
Details of this amazing event are listed below.
*If you decide to participate, and we do hope that you will, today you will select a member to bestow a random act of kindness upon. (If you are compelled to do so, you may show random acts of kindness towards as many members as your heart guides you to). If you would like for us to assign a supportive member to you to support, just reach out to Paula at RRBCInfo@gmail.com;
Here at RRBC, that can be done in a number of ways:
-Send a virtual gift card for a cup of coffee, a floral arrangement to brighten someone’s day, or even a Walmart, Target, or Amazon gift card with a little note that reads: “Do something nice for yourself today on me…” or something along those lines. Merely have your gift sent to RRBCInfo@gmail.com, along with the member’s name included in the gift and we will deliver the gift for you;
–Contact the Reviews Dept. and ask that a certain number of your reviews be taken away from your account and gifted to another member or members. You will lose those reviews, but hey, you would have given someone else in the club a head-start on their review-building;
-Pay for someone’s annual club membership renewal. If you gift this random act of kindness, there is a $10 discount on the membership renewal;
-Purchase a NEW membership for someone who you think would benefit from, and be a good fit for the RRBC. If you gift this random act of kindness, there is a $10 discount on the membership renewal;
-Sponsor someone who’s interested in membership in RWISA or RWISA University by paying their application fee or even a portion of it;
-Profile a member that you don’t know very well on your site today, in promotion of their book. (Be sure that any books you are spotlighting on your site are listed in the club’s catalog before you promote them using the club’s hashtags);
-Purchase a 4WillsPub Literary Gift Certificate for a member to use for a blog tour, book trailer or any number of literary services offered there. You may even purchase any of those items outright for them. Make someone’s day by sending them on a virtual blog tour, gifting them with a book trailer or even purchasing a day of social media support for them – all things authors really could use;
As you can see, there are a number of ways that you can show random acts of kindness for your fellow RRBC book club members. Be creative and think outside the box, but, whatever you do, do it from your heart. Giving is always the best medicine and it always makes you feel so darned good!
If you are participating in RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS Day, please contact us at RRBCInfo@gmail.com and share who you are showing a random act of kindness towards and how.
No one’s life is easy, especially now, but, there are some whose lives are just downright sad and extremely hard. Let’s take time today to give or honor our fellow members, just because. And, if you know that they’re in a struggle or you appreciate their service to others (members of our Tweet Support Teams are perfect examples here), then honor them … or, you could even select a member that you may not know very well and begin a new friendship!
Should you have any questions or need help in understanding the process of RRBC’s #RAOK Day, simply reach out to us at RRBCInfo@gmail.com.
