Spreading Kindness One Rock at a Time

Julia Fechter

How people are promoting positivity with rocks:
They are modest in size yet colorful in appearance. Media outlets such as The Today Show have featured them. These are kindness rocks.
Kindness rocks are small rocks painted with inspirational messages, such as quotes from respected public leaders or images based on nature.
Megan Murphy, a women’s life coach, started the The Kindness Rocks Project at Cape Cod in 2015 to “promote random acts of kindness to unsuspecting recipients” according to the project’s website.
How you can participate:
There are two main ways you can get involved in The Kindness Rocks Project here, either as someone who finds or paints the rocks.
The project’s main website gives step-by-step instructions on how you can personalize your own “kindness rock”.
You can also join several local and regional Facebook groups in order to find out the rocks’ various locations. Statesboro Bulloch (GA) Rocks is the most active local group, with over 1,000 members.
Other Facebook groups include Painted Rocks Savannah Ga, Kindness ROCKS Effingham!, As well, kindnessrockssavannah is on Instagram.
