An act of kindness through the rubble...

How Did You Hear About The Kindness Rocks Project?

I received a kindness rock!


Where? (Location)

On my front porch.

What inspired you to contact/join TKRP?

I think it's an amazing project! There isn't enough kind people in the world so I hope this helps people.

What was your initial reaction or impression when you stumbled upon the rock?

I was so surprised and happy, I felt overcome with happiness and thankfulness.

What did the rock have written on it? (You can attach pictures below)

The word "smile" with a beautiful flower painted on it.

Any other thoughts, emotions comments, stories…

When I first found the rock I thought it was from a friend or neighbor welcoming me back into my home. 8 months ago I lost my home to a fire and I just moved back into my home three weeks ago. So when I found the rock on my porch I thought it was a welcome home present. I asked everyone I knew if they put it there, with no luck on finding out who did it. I then posted a pic of the rock on my neighborhoods facebook page trying to thank whoever left it, if it was someone in the neighborhood. Three other neighbors posted that they also received one! We figured out then that some local schools were doing the project. It made me so happy receiving it, the timing was perfect. The last 8 months of my life were crazy, losing my home was the worst thing ever ... and to move back in and then receive a kindness rock, wow, just wow.
