On December 3, 2009, Misha Collins, used Twitter to ask his followers (aka Misha's minions come up with ideas for a “minionstimulus” project. The goal was to obtain U.S. government stimulus money (funding to aid endeavors to stop an economic recession) for non-profit “minion” initiatives.

The pursuit of government funding was soon abandoned in favor of morphing into a privately organized charity group and website, started by minion Lisa Walker and then known as Minion Stimulus. After visiting the fledgling website, Misha appointed Lisa his Director of Charitable Affairs.

With Misha's prompting, the minions raised over $30,000 to help UNICEF's aid efforts in Haiti.

In mid-2010, with The Art Department as parent organisation providing non-profit status, the Minion Stimulus morphed into Random Acts - poised to conquer the world, one random act of kindness at a time.

On August 21, 2010, Misha launched the site, posting a self made video explaining the organisation's mission, and announcing on September 5th he would run to raise money for efforts in Haiti and Pakistan.
