Luke Rudkowski’s Random Acts of Kindness Project

Last year, Luke Rudkowski asked everyone for his birthday to send in a video of themselves saying one message they would share to the world. Luke then took all the responses and put them into one video compilation. The video turned out great and we’d like to do something similar again this year. Instead of just talking though, let’s get out there and do something. We’re asking you to go out and do a random act of kindness for a complete stranger (we’ll be doing it too!). These days we’re often caught up in complaining about how the world is and how people should fix it. But in reality, it’s up to ourselves to make the difference. So let’s make another amazing video together and hopefully inspire others and remind people that we all have the ability inside of ourselves to create the better world that we want to live in.

Upload your videos to youtube, you can keep them on private, public or unlisted, however you like. Then email the videos to

Please send your videos to this email address and not as video responses or facebook comments or tweets. Thank you!

We’re going to leave this project open for 1 month – so please send in your videos by August 27th.

Thank you all so much and we really look forward to seeing all of your videos!

Watch last year’s video:


Luke Rudkowski is an independent journalist, activist, live streamer and founder of

Luke began his activism at the age of 17 when he was wrongfully accosted and assaulted by the NYPD. In 2006, at the age of 20, Luke founded the independent and grassroots media organization, WeAreChange. Through this organization and the use of social media, he has aimed to inspire those who no longer feel they can trust the mainstream media to become the media themselves. As support for WeAreChange grew, many followers became active themselves and WeAreChange has grown into a global organization with 160 independent chapters around the world.

Through Luke’s activism and journalism he has been able effect legislation and also influence dialog on a national level on important issues such as extrajudicial assassinations. Along with being featured in multiple documentaries, his work has been highlighted in numerous major news publications including CNN, MSNBC, BBC, The London Guardian, FOX, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, RT, Al Jazeera, among many more.

Luke’s work with WeAreChange has covered a broad spectrum from police brutality, human rights and protests to in depth interviews with many prominent political and influential figures. He is well known for his guerrilla style journalism and confronting prominent governing figures with questions that the public would not hear about through mainstream media. A small representation of his confrontations include Henry Kissinger, Ben Bernanke, Joe Biden, Mitt Romney, Lord Jacob Rothschild, Mayor Bloomberg, Larry Silverstein, and the Rockefeller Family

Luke has traveled around the world covering events, conducting interviews and live streaming protests. On Luke’s work the Village Voice stated, “Luke Rudkowski, whose live stream is one of the most reliable and engaging records of Occupy Wall Street actions.” As some politicians have deemed Luke’s journalism a threat, he has been banned from entering Canada and has been falsely arrested numerous times for questioning people such as Mayor Bloomberg. His reporting has often caused him to face the blunt of police brutality and Luke has been interrogated and harassed by police on many occasions. Police have gone as far as attempting to set up a fake bomb threat in order to refrain him from carrying out his activism.

Celebrity supporters of Luke and WeAreChange include: Rosario Dawson, Roseanne Barr, Rosie O’Donnell, Prodigy, KRS-1, Immortal Technique and Dylan Ratigan.

    Is it not a danger sign when you start referring to yourself in the third person? Just saying…

    this could very easily snowball into masturbatory self congratulation and smug back-patting…. the best good deeds go undocumented… i know a girl who is constantly posting her “good samaritanisms” online…. it infuriates me… giving a homeless person fifty cents does not make you a saint… and bragging about it nullifies any good that has been done (IMHO)… if yr just gonna have a huge good guy circle jerk, don’t even bother trying to help…. that’s pretty much a form of vampirism….

    Why should the acts of kindness be random?
