February 11-17, 2019 is the second annual Random Acts of Kindness Week sponsored by Random Acts Matter (RAM) a volunteer organization committed to sharing care and compassion in St. Charles.  The theme for the week is “Paint the Town Orange”
 
Founded in 2016 Random Acts Matter has performed over 140 Acts to date. Acts of kindness are performed year round via nominations from the community when someone in St. Charles identifies a person or family in need. 
 
Local businesses often provide goods, services and monetary support allowing Random Acts Matter volunteers to fulfill kindness requests.  The group has one fundraiser each year to subsidize Acts for the following year. 
 
Random Acts of Kindness Week offers an opportunity for the entire St. Charles community to come together in kindness.
 
The goal is for care and compassion to spread through our community through random Acts, big and small.  Opening a door for a stranger, sharing a smile, buying coffee for the person behind you at Starbucks, the list is endless.  Every Act of kindness changes our community, no matter how small. 
 
During our inaugural Paint the Town Orange 2018, many Acts of kindness were performed including: the Arcada showed a free movie, the Park District staff left a bin of new dog toys at the dog park, students carried groceries for patrons of Blue Goose, Mendel Plumbing and Heating painted a van with the RAM logo and local students made cards for residents of a senior living facility.
 
It is easy to participate, look for orange paint cans at local businesses and schools; they are filled with ideas for quick and easy random acts of kindness.  Do something nice for someone you love or have never met, get a group of co-workers together and share some kindness, get a neighborhood group together and do something that helps our community as a whole. 
 
Post your Acts of kindness on facebook at Random Acts Matter or on twitter @randomactsSTC.  Please contact Michelle Buck at dmbuck34@comcast.net with questions or help getting started.
