Random Act of Kindness #13

You're in for a treat today, friends. This RAK challenge is a fun one!

RAK Challenge #13- Brighten a kid's day by helping them buy a toy.

My favorite helpers were all over this one. Each kid had a dollar to "hide" in the Dollar Store toy section.

It looked a little like this...
 Gearing up for all the fun.

Heading in to complete our mission...


Let's pick out the perfect spot.

No, kids, we're not here to shop. You actually have to leave the dollar in the store.

We were armed with tape so we attached our dollars to the back of the packages and left a little peeking out to be spied easily.

Now, quick...leave the store before anyone catches us!

It's so funny how you feel like you're doing something wrong just because you're trying to be sneaky. I mean, really, if we were caught what would they say?... "I'm sorry, ma'am, you can't leave that dollar here. Please take it with you and exit the store immediately!"

I love involving my kids in RAK challenges. It's a great way to teach them about giving without expectations. We'll never know who ended up finding our dollars, but it sure is fun to know that you are responsible for making someone smile.

So there ya have it, friends. Are you up for the challenge? I can't wait to hear if you were inspired and completed the challenge!

If you're new to RAK challenges, you can play catch-up here and here. Now go be kind!

I think it's so important to teach these types of lessons to kids. I don't know that I would have thought to do this one, so I LOVE the idea!

You inspire me every week! We'll definitely do this, we're at the Dollar Tree often. I think I'll leave one in the candy aisle for a Mom who needs a sugar fix!
