The Kindness Rocks Project is inspiring people to be kind and happy!
Founder, Megan Murphy started randomly placing rocks, painted with inspirational quotes and sayings, on the beaches of Cape Cod and now people from all around the world are doing the same thing!
Now, the rocks don’t just span across the United States, thousands of the rocks can be found in 9 countries around the world.
Megan’s inspiration for Kindness Rocks came when she was walking on the beach. After realizing how often people look for «signs in the sand», Megan decided she was going to start leaving happy and positive messages on the rocks in the sand.
The best part about this project is the connection. After people find these rocks, they bring the idea back to their communities, start the project there, and the cycle of kindness continues.
“One message can change someone’s day, outlook, or life and that’s what this project does,” says Megan Murphy.
Murphy says the overall idea behind the project is simple. “One rock, one person,” she explains. “If a message hits a person at the right time, or they join and they do it in their community and they drop a message that hits somebody when they need it, it’s like a huge connection. It’s what our world needs right now.”
Murphy says although The Kindness Rocks Project has become almost a full-time job for her, the project brings in no money, only good feelings. She responds to every message the project receives personally.
“I feel like that’s my job to be the human on the other end,” she explains. Many of the messages come from people who found their rock during an emotionally difficult time.
