What is a Travelling Kindness Rock?
A Travelling Kindness Rock™ is a small dotted mandala stone that is mailed at the request of a loved one to an unsuspecting someone anywhere in the world who needs kindness. There is no cost to the loved one who requests the Travelling Kindness Rock or to the recipient. Travelling Kindness Rocks are painted by volunteer team members and postage is paid for using funds raised through other Travelling Kindness Rocks programs and sales. The intent is to connect people all over the world in a gesture of support and kindness, with the dots of the mandala painted on the stone representing all of us involved in this offering.
Travelling Kindness Rocks is also...
Travelling Kindness Rocks is also the name of a growing global community of folks, young and young at heart, who help these special rocks make their important journeys through spreading the word, following on social media, and purchasing Travelling Kindness Rocks items. As Travelling Kindness Rocks evolved, founder, Ginger LeBoutillier, also developed a system of step by step written instructions partnered with corresponding dotting tools that allows people everywhere to replicate the same dot mandala. Individuals, community groups, and schools around the world are invited to use this process not only to experience the fun, relaxing past time of painting dot mandalas, but as a symbol of unity and connection.
Travelling Kindness Rocks Mission
Travelling Kindness Rocks
Together, we send healing to individuals around the world.
A Travelling Kindness Rock is a small dotted mandala stone that is freely sent to an unsuspecting someone who needs cheer, all at the request of a loved one. They bring a gesture of kindness to people battling an illness, grieving, or going through other difficult life transitions.
Postage of these mandalas is paid for with a portion of funds earned from all other Travelling Kindness Rocks programs. Travelling Kindness Rocks are painted by a volunteer crew of dotters that work to match their dot mandalas to requests that flow through the website. Travelling Kindness Rocks are a symbol to recipients that they are not alone on their journey.
Travelling Kindness Rocks began in September 2015. To date, more than 700 Travelling Kindness Rocks have been sent and they have been received by individuals in 22 countries.
