When a cold snap hits Boise, Idaho, the Praynksters hit the streets to break the ice with some cheeky fun. Laughter warms the soul, even on the coldest day, wishing you a Christmas of bright cheer!


In our latest episode of The Golden Rule, a cold, wintry, blustery day doesn’t exactly lend oneself to getting outdoors, but one of Boise, Idaho’s worst winters on record was the perfect opportunity for the Praynksters to hit the streets and show some love.

“As a child, I had terminal stage four cancer and was only given a few weeks to live,” says one member of the Praynksters. “I felt like I had this second chance on life and so I want to use that calling to really inspire people and that’s really what the Praynksters is.”

A group of four men, the Praynksters’ aim is to practically and tangibly show God’s love through unexpected acts of kindness—whether that looks like crossing the street with someone and warming their hands with a portable heater, to giving a pep talk, a back massage or even an impromptu beatbox session.

“It’s about bringing joy to someone’s life, because you never know what someone’s going through,” says another member of the team.

The Praynksters ability to seize the moment, have fun and turn strangers into friends is both palpable and contagious. In a world that presses in on all sides, telling us to put ourselves first and serve our schedules above all, their energy is refreshing. Their attitude resonates deep, nudging us closer to what we know life’s really all about.

“Sometimes, we get caught up in our own problems. Really we need to see outside ourselves and take the blinders off…because if we can help others, the world is going to be a better place.”

How will you spread kindness today? Watch the video to see how the Praynksters get away with doing the unexpected.
