Sharing love

Sharing love.

Thinking about the holiday today in Brazil that is what we left anonymously this afternoon in a park close to our home.

"Today in our home country we celebrate KIDS DAY!

For this reason we are sharing some little toys with the kids from the neighborhood.

Pick up something and have a beautiful day. : )"

Young Nadia and her golden heart

Hi Carolina,

I work with your husband and I wanted to share with you 2 photos.

My daughter Nadia (age 8) came over to the office a few months ago and she saw the rocks. I told her about the word rocks project and she gathered several and placed them in Carlsbad and in the LA Area. 

She also saved 2 of them, her favorites, as keepsakes. She treasured these rocks.  In June, a friend of mine came for a visit from South Africa and stayed with us for a few days. When he was going to leave, Nadia told him she had a present for him, and I was surprised to see that she was giving him one of the word rocks that she had saved.  More recently, another friend came over to visit from Mexico City, and Nadia shared with him the last rock that she was saving.

Both of them sent me photos and I am sending them to you for posting on your website.

The photo of the first rock "Dream" was taken by Henry Oechler, who also happens to be a professional photographer. The 2nd photo was sent to me by Alfredo Garay, from Mexico City.

Thanks and keep doing such inspiring work!

There is always some joy in life

Sharing positive words, sharing love. ♥

"I'm going through some personal strife and finding the rock that says "joy" reminded me that there are still things in my life that are joyful and gave me hope that this too will pass. I found this rock when shopping at the Scripps Ranch Trader Joe's. Thank you". Anonymous

The organization intends to change its motto "ideas worth spreading" increasingly a reality. "We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world," say the organizers of TED. We also. And you?

New volunteer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Fernando Puga is an amazing guy with whom I had the chance to work with more than 
10 years ago. He was the best coworker to have around: funny, smart and updated. 

What a surprise to receive today his message telling me that 
he is spreading some word rocks in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).

"Hi, guys, hi Carol!
I'm sending a picture of the word rock I did and left in Horto, 
near my home here in Rio. A kiss for all you guys!

One year ago...

 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

A year ago my son had the idea to spread some positive words around. Since then, Word Rocks grew in a way that I could ever imagine it could grow. Thanks to everyone who in one way or another helped us so much to spread love around, bringing the word rocks to distant places and touching many hearts around the world. ♥
