Random Acts of Kindness Month
RMD Advertising’s culture is all about making a difference in all we do. We carry our values with us daily – in our relationships with each other and with our clients. That’s why we’re gearing up for our 5th Annual Random Acts of Kindness Month, celebrating like never before.
We love making a difference in the lives of our clients! Each brand we work with is an extension of our own RMD family. What does this dynamic create? A team of passionate professionals who know that we are only as great as that of our clients’ successes.
In February, we’re reconnecting with the human side of advertising. We’re making a conscious effort to build the relationships that matter most to us: RMD’er to RMD’er and RMD’er to client!
Read on for three ways to spread love all month long in February for Random Acts of Kindness Month:
At RMD, we’ll give one RAK challenge in three parts and invite team members to complete each challenge. Here’s the catch: On the last Mojo Friday of the month, the annual RAK RAD RMD’er Award will be given to the team member who exemplifies the true spirit of Random Acts of Kindness Month (which means one extra day off during the year)!
How can you broadcast this fun challenge across your place of work? Let us know!
Part One: Give Strong
Weekly challenges will be given on Yammer. Team members are challenged to complete each task and report that they did so on Mojo Friday.
1. Go to Starbucks and buy coffee for the customer behind you.
2. While out, tell someone they dropped a dollar (even though they didn’t) and give them a dollar (or more!)
3. Buy a few grocery staples for your local food pantry on your next trip to the store. Learn about how we boosted our mission for Wagons Ho Ho Ho this way!
4. Send a handwritten note to someone you haven’t talked to in a while. There’s just something so personal about pen and paper, isn’t there? Commit to returning to it this week and put a smile on someone’s face!
5. Going out to eat? Tip a little extra or give a compliment to the restaurant’s manager or chef!
Part Two: Share the Love
Share your love for your colleagues! Whether you buy your officemate lunch or surprise someone down the hall with a few words of encouragement left on a sticky note, put your heart into it! Your energy is contagious and by giving positivity, you’ll attract positivity!
Part Three: Give On
While we love Random Acts of Kindness Month, we believe that the habits we pick up in February should stick with us! Why? Because we are more than an advertising agency. We are more than the amazing results we churn out each and every day. We are only as greats as the love we put into our relationships here.
