Rock Painting with a Purpose!
The Rock Kindness Project. Ruby introduced this “fun with a purpose” class to our Waimanalo Church Family in October. She introduced a friend, Kelly Ann Brown, who brought her talents and shared them with us as we learned to paint rocks with a purpose. Thank you Kelly Ann and thanks for sharing some of your wonderful “rock” birthday cake. It was awesome.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN.............
It all started with a single stone on a beach in Cape Cod and now spans the globe. Megan Murphy, founder of the Kindness Rock Project founded the project based on the profound truth that one message at the right moment can change someone’s day, their outlook, and indeed, their whole life. The messages on these thoughtful rocks take many forms, gratitude, affirmation, encouragement, and hope along the way for someone to find at exactly the right time.
She has a mission with a message:
ONE MESSAGE AT JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT CAN CHANGE SOMEONE’S ENTIRE DAY, OUTLOOK, LIFE
Find out more about the project on her “A Pebble for Your Thoughts” website: https://www.thekindnessrocksproject.com
There is also a video interview with Megan on this website that will tell you more about the beginnings and concept. The foundations goal, she states is simple: To promote random acts of kindness to unsuspecting recipients by painting inspirational rocks and sharing them in a variety of ways and places.
It was a fun time, and inspired several of us to take it and use it with our family and friends during the holiday season.
Ruby’s family together time: each family member visiting her and Raul for their retirement and anniversary celebration in November, got together and painted these rocks especially for them.
Nikki Moore was inspired to share the activity and idea with her granddaughter while visiting on the mainland during the holidays. She and her granddaughter, Bella had a great time shopping for the materials and painting together. Her granddaughter then took it with her on her holiday trip and shared them with others along the way.

Sandi Hann was also inspired to share the concept and fun of inspiring others with some rocks she had painted for her two sisters and nieces for their holiday gifts this year, along with a little book she made up of how to get started, and a little $ to help with supplies to get started on their own quest of sharing the enjoyment within their own neighborhoods and community.
