A Unique Way to Spread Kindness Using Rocks

You might be thinking, spread kindness through rocks? How? There’s a mass movement called The Kindness Rocks Project and painted rocks are popping up across the country in our sidewalks and other unsuspecting or obvious places.

The Kindness Rocks Project was created to motivate and inspire others to spread kindness through the painting of rocks with inspirational or fun quotes to recipients that find them. This idea has spread quickly and a local Rochester group has been started that you can get involved in. Rochester Rocks – Minnesota is an active group that has numerous people involved.

Heidi Kemper started the Rochester Rocks group a year ago. She said “I started it because my best friend’s mom, Renee Lee told me about a similar group in Albert Lea. My son had a great time painting, hiding, and finding rocks there so we wanted to do it at home. When we tried to find one in Rochester it hadn’t been started yet so I started it. We didn’t have any activity last year but Vicki Walker took over this summer and hosts a rock painting at her store every weekend. Since then it has really taken off. I just wanted something fun to do with my kids that got us out of the house. My son loves pokemon so he’s really excited about painting rocks like pokemon then hiding them for kids to find.”

While the groups focus is “Community Art Project – Art in Public Places,” you can add kindness appeal and quotes to the rocks for added touch of inspiration. This is such a good way to get out of the house with your family to not only do some good but get some quality family time together. I am excited to see a group like this in Rochester.

Kristin Ladwig Eggebraaten, who recently became involved with Rochester Rocks, had a great idea and said “We should all make some RAK rocks and flood the town with them. When you find one, you have to perform one RAK and post about it.” I love this idea and think we should do this!

Here’s some inspiration and if you decide to participate, send me your pictures. I’ll share them on KROC.
