Hi there, fellow deviants!
In this small introductory journal, I'd like to explain an idea for a project I'm expanding upon.
So stay put, it's going to be an interesting read, I promise! What are Acts of Random Kindness?Acts of Random Projects
, also known as ARKs
is a project that was initially started by MzzAzn
and builds upon the idea of "paying it forward".
Basically, each month you commit yourself to doing at least one or two (or more) random acts of kindness to spread positivity throughout the community.
This can be done by leaving small positive comments on pieces that haven't been commented on yet, by making art for someone, by giving points to donate towards someone's goal and in a various amount of other ways. The main idea is simply to do something constructive to make another person smile. It doesn't need to be a big gesture, it's the sentiment behind it that counts.Why should I participate?
Besides the fact that you'll be a positive force within the community, the idea of this project is to randomly reward those who partake in it. Good deeds deserve to be acknowledged, no?
That being said, the main idea still is to spread some positivity in the community by means of small acts of random kindness. How do I participate?
Keep a look-out for people who contribute a lot to the community without asking for something in return. Look up new deviants and welcome them to the site. Basically anyone can participate, as long as you're doing something positive where you go.This is still a WIP-project.
Organisation-wise, there's still a lot that needs to be sorted out, such as how to keep track of those who participate in the project and such. That being said: I hope this introductory-journal to the project has at least piqued your interest. Groups backing this project
And be sure to show MzzAzn
some love for being the first to start the project up.
I'm merely working with what she started.
