RAKit Week begins today. It is, without a doubt, my favorite week here at theCHIVE. It’s not only a time when theCHIVE and all its employees drop everything to focus on charity for an entire week, RAKit Week is also where our Chive community shines.
This year RAKit has taken on increased importance and we will call on Chive Nation to pay forward an unprecedented amount of goodwill this week.
But first, I’m happy to kick things off. With August set to be one of the largest eviction months in our country’s history, I’ll begin there. Nothing causes more worry and stress than the looming potential of losing your home or apartment, especially if you have a family.
With an avalanche of evictions on the horizon, I’m kicking off RAKit week by paying the rent of Chivers who need it most.
I literally got out a fresh checkbook and will be personally writing rent checks until they’re completely gone.
