In 2005, ALLBRiGHT PAINTING's Chief Solutionist
Josh Abramson started Paint-It-Forward as a way to give back to his local SCV community. Since then, Paint-It-Forward and similar paint charity programs have been adopted by other painting contractors across the United States and Canada, truly growing into a movement.
Inspired by Abramson's model, The Painting Contractors Association (PCA) is creating a month-long event this October where as many PCA member companies as possible will come together to improve their local communities.
It all started when ALLBRiGHT PAINTING was invited to participate in ABC's Extreme Home Makeover in 2005. On the show, Abramson and his team helped transform a house owned by a family in need into their dream home. Because of the inspiration and uplifting experience, this led Abramson to think, "Why do we have to wait for a TV show for us to be able to come in to do this for our community?" And with that, Paint-It-Forward was born.

"PAINT-IT-FORWARD has truly grown into a movement in North America."
