DAVID AND TREVEIA DENNIS

With the untimely passing of their immediate family members in short succession, Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Day Houston founder David and Treveia Dennis thought they had lost everything. But through their compassion of loved ones, their community, and strangers they once again found their footing. In return, they have made it their mission to spread love through random acts of kindness. In 2015, RAK Day officially launched with a City of Houston proclamation. On July 25, 2015, more 1,000 acts of kindness occurred throughout the city as part of the initiative. With support from Royal Sonesta Houston hotel near the Galleria, the Houston Humanitarian Awards were established to recognize local heroes that exemplify kindness by giving back. In anticipation of the upcoming Random Act of Kindness Day on July 25, 2017, all Houstonians are invited to click here and nominate a local humanitarian for recognition at the Houston Humanitarian Awards.
