A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.

Kindness is contagious and doesn’t cost a thing.

Kindness is an investment. Good karma is the return.

Money makes you rich. Kindness makes you great.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Kindness is loving people more than they deserve.

Choose kindness…It matters.

Do good. Be great. Believe there is good in the world.

Be kind to others. Your random act of kindness might become someone’s best lifetime memory.

Sometimes, a single random act of kindness can become the spark that ignites a revolution.

Be nice to people. Sometimes, a smile is all it takes to start a chain of kindness.

Be kind to others without expecting anything in return. Karma is keeping a tab.

Kindness may be blind but it is the most eye-opening feeling one can get. Thanks for being kind.

Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.

Have courage and be kind.

Kindness Rocks On

We Rock Portsmouth (WRP) Kindness Project

Who would think a rock could be a fuel for kindness and love? Our friend Sheila did, and now she’s spreading love, one rock at a time in a New Hampshire Seacoast community!

Sheila was inspired to spread kindness in Portsmouth, NH after reading a story about creating kindness rocks and one thing led to another.

Gathering the rocks was Sheila’s first step to getting started. She reached out to her community and was fortunate to receive a large donation of river rocks from a generous supporter in Newburyport. She purchased a variety of colorful, acrylic paints and was ready to embellish her river rocks, but she needed some help.

Sheila recruited her grandson Landon to help paint the rocks with inspirational and motivational sayings on them. The two then went out and hid the rocks all around the Portsmouth community.

Sheila and Landon still carry on this tradition of rocking kindness. Each week, they come together to paint rocks and tuck them in spots where they will be an unexpected joyful discovery. Sheila also encourages members of the community to keep the kindness rolling by hiding their found WRP rocks in a new spot, for someone else to find or keep them and replace them with some of their own.

If you’re inspired by Sheila’s story, you can join the Kindness Rocks Project and start creating and hiding kindness rocks in your community. #RockOn
