In January 2015, Infinity Federal Credit Union started a "Random Act of Kindness (RAOK) Campaign" to uplift people’s spirits and initiate a "pay it forward" social media push under our twitter hashtag, #RAOK207. (207 is the area code in Maine) Because it was our intent to conduct "ambush good deeds," we affectionately called ourselves the "Kindness Ninjas!" Each Branch received $200.00 monthly to perform deeds in their local communities, but they also performed several good deeds that did not cost any money. Some Example RAOK: • Brush the snow off and shovel out cars in a parking lot after a storm • Volunteer to clean cages and do laundry at an animal shelter • Pay for several people’s tolls heading on the Maine turnpike • Buy a stranger an ice cream or give them a flower • Donate and prepare the meals for a local homeless shelter • Pick up a meal tab at a restaurant for a family • Bring coffee and baked goods to our local 911 dispatchers • Pay for someone's groceries at the checkout • Pay for someone’s movie tickets or Museum admission At each act, our employees wear their "RAOK Ninja" button, and they leave/hand out our “Infinity FCU – Helping people is our favorite thing to do!” business card to encourage RAOK recipients to both pass on the kindness to someone else, and to tweet about it under #RAOK207. This campaign's intent was to "make someone's day better" but, I think what we have learned is that it in-turn makes our own day better too! #PeopleHelpingPeople #FeelsSoGood2BKind "
