A Travelling Kindness Rock is a dotted mandala stone that is sent free of charge to an unsuspecting someone who needs cheer.

There is no cost to the loved one who requests the Travelling Kindness Rock or the recipient. 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 offering a gesture of support and kindness to those who need it.

Everyone is welcome to participate from where ever they live in the world.

Travelling Kindness Rocks began September 2015. As of the update of this page, July 2017, over 700 Travelling Kindness Rocks have been sent out and have been received by people in 23 different countries.

Read on for how you can request one for your loved one who needs a symbol of support.

Travelling Kindness Rocks are sent to people going through a difficult time in their lives with the intention of bringing them some cheer and to symbolize they have the support of the many people who have contributed to the journeys of Travelling Kindness Rocks.

We may be miles apart, but a little kindness
travels a long way in a weary world to bring
a ray of sunshine to those of us who need it.
