Random Acts of Christmas Kindness Scavenger Hunt

Have you heard of RACK'ed? R.A.C.K?......... 
Random Acts of Christmas Kindness? 

 I came across these ideas and thought it would be the perfect thing to start off the Christmas Season with! 

Sites I drew my inspiration from...... here , here, here, and here

I went through ideas and decided on about 15 that I thought would be fun to do with my family.. then i sat down and shared them with Ty, and figured out which one we wanted to do.... 

1. Leave Quarters at a Laundromat 
(we live in a little college town so i'm sure some poor college students loved it when they saw these!)

2. Leave the correct amount of change on a vending machine.

3. Leave Dollars in the Kids Section at the Dollar Store
(I wish we could have seen their faces!.. there were no kids in that sections when we did this)

4. Pay for the tab of the person behind you.... we handed the cashier the little R.A.C.K.ed label for her to give it to them with their receipt so they would know what it was all about.

5. Find a Dirty Car and leave a car wash gift certificate. 
(this is where it felt like a scavenger hunt for us)

6. Ok, so I am totally not sure if this one was ok to do?? haha but we left a promo code on one Redbox for a free dvd rental (you can only use the promo code once per account... so if you have used one before it doesn't work.. anyways hopefully that one was ok to do? because I am totally posting about it)

Hopefully the people who found these little gifts will pass on the Random Acts of Kindness Chain. 
I realize posting about this defeats the whole purpose of it being discreet.. but I figured if it can spark some of you readers to do the same then it is probably worth it!! 
This one would be good to do with friends, family, or a youth group.

If you want to do something like this you can use the print offs i made.. just click on the image & hopefully it will be ready to print that way? If not, e-mail me & i will be more than happy to send it to you! lindseymarlor{at}gmail{.}com
i also made a special one for the Dollar Store.. b/c I didn't want adults using this dollar...


  1. It is so much fun!!

  2. Love it!  Going to do this this year with my family.  Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. Such a great idea lindsey! I love the car wash one! Sounds like a fun family home evening activity!

  4. What a great idea. Thank you for being an inspiration; looking forward to coming up with my own RACK list.

  5. I love this idea!  i'm totally going to try this for my kids teachers!

  6. I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!

  7. Love!!!! Such a great idea to start as a christmas tradition!!!!

  8. Love this!! Thanks for sharing--I think our little family will have a lot of fun doing this!
    p.s. We are neighbors and our husbands know each other, but I feel bad you & I have never met! Sorry I haven't been more friendly! 

  9. We will be doing R.A.C.K. for the first time this year and wanted to share one that we thought would be nice. Stop and Thank your police, fire, or EMS workers. Many blessings!

  10. How about the Bell Ringers?

  11. I love your RAK tags. I was unable to pull either set of them up. I would love to have you send them to me when you can so I can do this myself.

    Thank you

  12. I guess I pushed the wrong button. Please send to

    Thank you.

  13. How lovely! Thank you for sharing your tags/printables and THANK YOU for spreading kindness. :) I am going to show them and link to your blog on our group Kindness Project blog ( we are a bunch of writers who are trying to spread kindness).

    Merry Christmas! <3

  14. Oh and I'm going to pin it on our group Pinterest board and on my holiday board. :)

  15. I agree, it was worth posting about your random acts of kindness if it sparks just one person to go out and do the same! And it has! Thank you for sharing these ideas…in honor of the kids in Newtown, CT, I am going to do this with my kids this week before Christmas. Many thanks and Merry Christmas!

  16. Thank-you so much for sharing your printable. For me, that was an act of kindness and I'm grateful :)
