HELP US SPREAD KINDNESS AROUND THE WORLD
Helping people has continued to be a passion for founder, Ricky Smith, over the years. Raised in the Cleveland suburbs of Warrensville Heights, Ohio, Ricky possessed a need to excite the world with his off-kilter wit and eagerness to help the needy any way he could. Through his routine charitable actions, Ricky possessed a sense of randomness. From giving random umbrellas on a rainy day to offering prime time sporting tickets to absolute strangers, Ricky wanted to create experiences for people while giving back. His consistent random giving attracted the attention of friends in his hometown, Cleveland, OH, and in a short time Ricky knew his actions needed to be a model to inspire others to want to perform “Random Acts of Kindness Everywhere”. R.A.K.E. was then born.
By including the giving aspect not only did Ricky want to create experiences but he wanted to show that giving goes a long way.
