Here is what our engineers got up to on RAK day.
Matt and I pooled together some money to add to RAK and ended up with $140.00. We drove into Sterling VA, looking for a RAK opportunity, we ended up in the Sterling Blvd Shopping center. Matt immediately saw a woman, looking very stressed, walking to her car from the DMV office. Her car beat up, and packed full of her things, he approached and handed her $30 and the RAK card. She was very confused by the gesture but grateful at the same time and returned a huge smile after reading the card. From there, across the parking lot, noticed a coin laundromat and that is where we were able to RAK the rest. The place was full of moms with kids and a few older couples. There was a language barrier with most BUT we handed out $20’s to help them all pay for the laundry for the day. Again, mostly confusion but they were all very grateful, as were Matt and I, to be able to make so many smiles. Next time we will be better prepared and armed with rolls of quarters.
