#In Park RAK/Giveaway...Greetings and Salutations fellow MWers...Our family is in the parks enjoying the awesome holiday offerings...we would like to find a home for this hard cover edition of the Xmas class classic The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore...find me in the parks and say "Happy Holidays" and it is yours...will update location :-)

Can I ask why you are changing the name from RAK to ARK? - Mrsblue  693.1 #285 4:58PM
You sure may...not changing the name at all...just referring to it in different ways and forms...its just using different adjectives...basic premise remains the same...to spread a small bit of magic...have a great evening :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7900.6 #10 5:02PM
Well it was pioneered in the lounge by Dahulagirl as a RAK. It's in the rules as a RAK, so I'm still unclear as to why you feel the need to change it. Some things might be best left unchanged and a RAK is one. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 5:35PM
I don't think he's trying to change it--his post says RAK/Giveaway/ARK, so I think he's just using several different terms to explain the same concept :) ARK is also used in Evan Almighty, so a lot of people might know "RAKs" as "ARKs"--the spirit of the action remains the same, though, and that's probably what's most important: We change the world "one act of random kindness at a time" 😊 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 5:54PM
Out of respect for Dahulagirl, I think it needs to be left as RAK. - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 5:57PM
That's great for EvanAlmightyWait, but on MouseWait, it should be what it was, a RAK. I'm sure he can find his own thing, instead of changing the wording of a long standing lounge activity. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 6:16PM
Wow... he's doing an act of kindness. Why does it matter how he refers to it? It's free and out of the goodness of his heart. How are people supposed to feel welcome with this kind of nitpicking - disneymomma87  216.5 #1778 6:21PM
πŸ˜‚ EvanAlmightyWait, haha! I'm not trying to ruffle feathers; I'm just saying that he's not trying to change it, but rather, he's using several terms. If he wanted to try to change it, he would have just said "ARK". Whatever the terminology, it's a very generous gift for someone. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 6:26PM
You're right. Who cares that Dahulagirl started RAKs in the lounge. Not for notoriety or thank yous or likes or points, but because she's a wonderful and amazingly generous woman. But who cares. Let this guy do whatever he feels like. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 6:31PM
I like RAK because that's what Dahulagirl started in the lounge and I don't want people to forget her or what she started, the contributions she made to MW, or what an amazing person she is just because she's unable to be in the lounge right now. It makes me sad to see it called something else. My 2 cents. - Mrsblue  693.1 #285 7:30PM
If you want to give away something in the lounge it's a RAK. End. Of. Story. - Krissy Marissy  411.2 #540 7:35PM
