What Is Paint-It-Forward?

Over 10 years ago, ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING was invited to participate on ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover. On the show, ALLBRiGHT Chief Solutionist Josh Abramson and his team of painters helped transform a needy family’s residence into their dream home. It was a truly inspirational and uplifting experience for everyone involved.

When the project was complete, Josh was so inspired that in 2005, he decided to start Paint-It-Forward as a way to give back to his local community.  Since that time, Paint-It-Forward and similar paint charity programs have been adopted by other painting contractors across the United States and Canada – it has truly grown into a movement!

We are proud to announce that since completing the first Paint-It-Forward event, our combined efforts have reached a goal of over $1,000,000 worth of free painting services and materials delivered to deserving families and nonprofit organizations.

How Paint-It-Forward Works

Each year we ask our local community to nominate a family or nonprofit organization that is in need of painting services but that can’t afford it. Once we’ve received nominations for an upcoming event, our Painting Happiness team and our community vote on the candidates and we announce the winner soon after. The recipient receives up to $10,000 worth of free painting services and supplies.

All of our employees (and even some family members) volunteer their time at each Paint-It-Forward event, which we typically hold at least twice a year.  We’ve learned that a freshly painted home or office space can brighten the outlook and bring a little “Painting Happiness” into the lives of the recipients.

Paint it PinkOther Community Initiatives We’ve Started

Here are just a few other social and community initiatives that we created to continue our support of local families in need.

Paint-It-Pink

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING donates 5% of all the proceeds from Paint-It-Pink projects to the Circle of Hope and other breast cancer support centers.  Each October, customers are encouraged to sign up for our Paint-It-Pink campaign where not only does 5% of the job go to help those in need, but we will also discount their project 5%.  This way, everyone wins!

Paint it Smart

Paint It S.M.A.R.T.

Each summer ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING selects a few young adults from single-parent families to participate in this internship-style program. Juniors in high school through college-age students who find themselves wanting to learn a trade but don’t have anyone to teach them can submit their application telling us why they should be selected for this paid summer training program. Paint It S.M.A.R.T. stands for Single Mothers And Responsible Teens.

Josh Abramson started ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING in 1987 with the goal to not only provide Painting Happiness through the company’s painting services, but to use his time and talents to improve his local community.

30 years later, Josh has been able to achieve that goal by starting and continuing to grow multiple charity programs focused on serving his local community, including Paint-It-Pink, Paint It S.M.A.R.T, and the Paint-It-Forward movement.

Josh has been recognized for his focus on giving back and has received the National PDCA Humanitarian Award in both 2013 and 2015.  He was awarded the 38th Assembly District’s Small Business of the Month for April 2017 for his contributions to his community through Paint-It-Forward, and has been featured on a segment of Senator Bill Bradley’s American Voices.

“Painting is a vehicle that we use to bring happiness to a lot of people. We are a for-profit company that truly wants to give away our painting services.” – Josh Abramson
