WHERE MIND MEETS HEART

“REMINDS US THAT GREATNESS IN THE SMALLEST OF MOMENTS, IN THE HUMBLEST OF HEARTS, AND WE SHALL, EACH OF US, BE CALLED TO GREATNESS. WHETHER WE SHALL RISE TO MEET IT OR LET IT SLIP AWAY IS THE CHALLENGE PUT BEFORE US ALL.”

LIBBA BRAY

IMAGINE A WORLD WITH NO BUTTERFLIES ONLY CATERPILLARS?

2020 AND THE START OF 2021 HAS BEEN FILLED WITH SO MUCH EMOTIONAL TURMOIL FOR MOST. SOME HAVE LOST LOVED ONES, BUSINESSES, INCOMES, HEALTH, FAITH IN HUMANITY AND EVERY OUNCE OF WHAT WE USED TO CALL NORMAL.

IT SEEMS AS THOUGH A LARGE NUMBER OF US HAVE BECOME LIKE CATERPILLARS – AFRAID OF THE “NEW NORMAL”, AFRAID OF CHANGE, AFRAID OF WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS AND TO A CERTAIN DEGREE AFRAID TO REACH OUT TO OTHERS WHO ARE IN NEED OF A LOVING WORD OR A KIND GESTURE.

THIS CAMPAIGN IS AIMED AT THAT, TO ENABLE EVERYBODY TO GIVE THAT LOVING WORD AND TO MAKE THAT KIND GESTURE!

YOU CAN’T SPELL CHALLENGE WITHOUT CHANGE, LET’S BECOME BUTTERFLIES BY LETTING GO OF BEING CATERPILLARS.

It’s time to get excited!

Let’s make JUNE:
 - Joyful

About RAK Events

RAK Consulting and Events is a South African based start-up company founded in 2015 and dedicated to developing innovative, fun, and exciting initiatives for volunteers with a goal to change the perception of volunteerism in South Africa. The idea is to get individuals from all walks of life to go out to communities and make a difference by giving time, skills and goods to those less fortunate. Corporate Social Investment/initiatives in South Africa is often defined as a way of demonstrating corporate social responsibility and engaging in activities that improve the social, environmental and economic well-being of a community. The impactful CSI projects speak to the values of an organisation and should make a positive contribution to a company’s brand. RAK as a CSI implementing partner to a variety of Corporate companies has seen a large number of these corporates integrate social and environment responsibilities into their operations and practices, and over the years, we have seen an influx of volunteers wanting to make a positive impact in the communities we have been working with until Covid hit.

Our “New Normal” has opened doors for the RAK team to be creative, innovative and optimistic. It has allowed us to generate ideas and come up with amazing “virtual volunteering” opportunities for Corporate companies, their employees and the “stay at home mom/wife” to get involved in the comfort of their homes.

Our Vision:
To become the leading CSI Implementing partner of both virtual and on-site volunteering platforms, creating innovative volunteering opportunities for both skilled and unskilled individuals within Corporate companies across the globe.
