Mayor Proclaims Monday ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ Day
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Mayor Frank Jackson has proclaimed Monday ‘Random Acts of Kindness Everywhere Day’ in Cleveland.
R.A.K.E. was founded by local comedian and Clevelander Ricky Smith, who has traveled across the country and used social media to promote random acts of kindness that strangers shared with him along the way.
R.A.K.E. is meant to encourage people to do something nice for someone else. Just in the past few months, Smith has raked leaves and dressed up as a superhero to cheer up kids at the Cleveland Clinic.
Monday, Smith will spend 24 hours doing one random act of kindness each hour on the hour.
He’s encouraging others to do the same.
