Back in July I had a post about the Kindness Rocks project which I happened to hear about through my friend Stephanie Deltorchio’s blog. Well Stephanie took her kindness one step further and enlisted Mark Cole to get the city’s permission to “plant” a KINDNESS ROCKS garden at Stage Fort Park with the help of her 5 year old grandson Gabriel McQueeney, who worked hard collecting & painting the rocks. They also left a basket with blank painted rocks for anyone who wants to make one. Gabriel also “planted” a few in the playground area for children. What a great lesson to pass on to the next generation!
Stephanie said she fell in love with the idea (as we all did!) immediately and has since contacted Megan the originator and now Gloucester is listed on the Kindness Rocks website thekindnessrocksproject.com. People can post photos of rocks they find or their own on Facebook @TheKindnessRocksProject and can tag their rocks #thekindnessrocksproject on Instagram too. She told Gabe that small acts of kindness can make someone’s day and he really hopes the rocks make people happy! Anyone interested in contributing can certainly drop some rocks off to add to the kindness garden….I know I have a pile ready to go! Thanks Stephanie and Gabe!!
