Paint the Town Orange

Random Acts Matter is hosting our SECOND ANNUAL Random Acts of Kindness Week:

February 11-17, 2019

Random Acts Matter (RAM) is a nonprofit organization committed to mobilizing our community to provide care and compassion through random acts of kindness and service.

Check out our Random Acts Video!

The color Orange has been chosen to represent RAM. It combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow; It is associated with joy and sunshine, which we hope each of our random acts of kindness will provide to the recipient(s).

RAM will be coordinating an outreach effort to engage our St. Charles community in performing random acts of kindness during Random Acts of Kindness Week, February 11-17, 2019.

Goal: To share care and compassion, throughout our community, through random acts of kindness.

Who: Everyone is encouraged to participate. Individuals, students, businesses, coworkers, neighbors, church groups — we need everyone to help us cover St. Charles in kindness!


-Actively look for opportunities to share kindness.

-Acts can be informal and simple (share a smile, open a door for someone).

-Acts can be formal (in 2018, students made cards for seniors, and the St. Charles Park District left dog toys at the dog park).

-Acts can benefit one person, a larger group (your office or neighbors), or the whole community.

-No Act is too small, and any random act of kindness is encouraged!

Additional Information: Please consider creating a team to perform Acts during the week, please share what your team is doing via our Facebook page or Twitter page.

Other questions: Please contact our Paint the Town Orange chairperson, Michelle Buck, via email at

Small Acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world!

Please join us in February to paint St. Charles orange with Acts of kindness!
