If you are looking for what Random Acts is doing for COVID-19, please see more information on the Random Acts Support Program (COVID-19).

Welcome to our Random Acts Support page.

This is a support page for YOU.

Helping others is what we are all about, and though performing acts of kindness is often one of the best ways to lift our own spirits, that can be hard if we are not caring for ourselves first. That is where this page comes in. This page is a work in progress, we currently have a few simple tools and resources, which we will build upon, and which we hope you can as well.

If you are looking for support resources or helpful tips there are many sources in the world, we wish to give you a bit of a starting point. Most importantly we hope you take away the message that caring for YOU is an important part of caring for the world.
