JT's Monthly Aloha RAK Club.....August

It is time once again, to open the doors to our JT Monthly Aloha RAK club. This is for the month of August. You have 1 week to sign up for this. On the 3rd of August, we will CLOSE the sign up doors, and all those that have signed up will be designated a person to RAK, and you all take it from there.

Here are the rules:

  1. Open To USA, ALASKA and CANADA residents only (To save on shipping fees), as well as those living on a military base in a foreign country (must have US Military Address).
  2. Open to ALL Bloggers and Readers (peeps without a blog ok to join!).
  3. RAK item MUST be handmade!
  4. Only 1 RAK item is required.
  5. RAK item is preferrably a handmade card (to save on shipping fees) - unless YOU (the RAK'r) is ok with paying for add'l shipping fees.
  6. The person you will be RAKing will be assigned by Jen, therefore when signing up for this RAK group - you are stating that you are "OK" with whomever your are matched up with, and "OK" with paying for shipping fees. ($0.41 to USA, $0.69 to Alaska, $0.69 to Canada/Military Base - please correct me if I am wrong - these fees are for a simple greeting card size).
  7. This is a monthly thing. I will post here on my blog 1 week prior to the beginning of the next month and ask if anyone is interested in signing up for "JT's Monthly Aloha RAK Fun". You must sign up each month - we will NOT assume that you will participate every month.
  8. Please complete and send your RAK to it's receiver by the 20th of each month.
  9. Please do NOT flake out!!! If in case of emergency, and you must flake out, please inform me ASAP, as I will need to fill in, or have someone else fill in for you!! Remember ~ YOU are also being RAK'd so, if you break the "Chain of RAKing" then somebody is going be left "UN-RAK'd".
  10. Upon receiving your RAK'd item - you are asked to take a picture and upload to your blog, and thank the person that has RAK'd you. If you do NOT have a blog, please upload to your gallery, and in the description of your photo please mention your thank you to the person that has RAK'd you. If you do NOT have a BLOG or a Gallery - you are to email a photo of your RAK'd item to me, Jen - at littlecs7@gmail.com, and let me know what you'd like to say to your RAK sender. Lastly, if you do not have a camera or scanner to get an image of your RAK'd item, please visit your next door nieghbor, he or she will have one for you to borrow. =0)
  11. Have FUN!!!
  12. These rules will be posted each month, and are subject to change (for all the right reasons).

What is a "RAK"?! R.A.K is an acronym for "Random Act of Kindness" - meaning that you're giving something out of the kindness of your heart. 1 RAK once a month to someone that will totally appreciate your hardwork, and awesome artwork is so priceless.....

Ok, so now - if you're interested in participating in our August's "JT's Monthly Aloha RAK Club", please leave a comment here and include your email for me to contact you (or you may click on the contact me link in the upper right corner of my page, and send me an email directly). Last day for sign up will be Monday, July 30th. I will have everyone matched up and announced by Thursday, August 2nd.
