Kids Corps USA and Word Rocks

A little bit more about the amazing group who spent Sunday morning preparing rocks at Ponto Beach (check here to read).

The name of the group is Kids Korps, and their chapter is Pacific Rim Elementary. The purpose of Kids Korps is for children to learn about volunteering and making a positive change in our community.

"Kids Korps USA engages young people, ages 5 through 25, in community service. Our mission is to instill in America’s youth the spirit of giving while providing valuable education in leadership and responsibility. Our vision is to develop leaders for life through youth volunteerism. The mission of Kids Korps has an indelible and unique impact beyond the many benefits of volunteerism: we shape young lives through exposure to, and direct involvement in community service. The daily benefit of improving ones community is tangible. The lifelong benefit to young volunteers is an increase in their level of maturity, empathy, and positive perspective on how THEY can make the world a better place."

As a mother, I believe this is a wonderful way to involve children from youth on issues of good and solidarity. Congratulations to you all!

Word Rocks in our old school magazine

This month, the Word Rocks is part of the school magazine, thanks to editor Pedro Motta. I am very proud and happy to appear in the this school's magazine where we'd been so happy and well educated for life!

Hope rock found in Toronto, Canada!

Last Christmas we had beloved friends from Canada spending the holiday with us. On their way back home I gave some word rocks to their beautiful daughter Dora so she could spread them throughout  Toronto.

One of the rocks was found and the person wrote today telling me her beautiful story and connection with rocks and positive words. What a wonderful world!

"Dear Carolina and Antonio,

I have long been a big fan of words on stones. I've used them as a counselling tool, and as reminders for what's good. Sometimes I've written words on rocks for myself, or for friends. Sometimes family and friends have written words on rocks as reminders for me.

One evening a few weeks ago, I was on my way home from visiting friends, and I found a Hope rock under a bench, with on the back of it. I was thrilled. I tried to give it to the friend I'd been visiting that night, thinking maybe its message was for her, but she insisted I keep it--that it was for me. 

Checking out your site I found your request to send a photo of said rock. I tried out a few different shots until I found the right one: in a bowl with other stones I'd been sent, stones with words of encouragement when I needed them.

A few days ago I walked by the parkette where I'd found the Hope rock, and the bench was gone. Where did it go? Had I dreamed it? But I hadn't, because I've got the rock, alongside other ones I love.

Thank you so much for this wonderful project.

Rebecca Higgins"

Word Rocks at the beach

What about gathering some kids to prepare a lot of word rocks to spread throughout the neighborhood?

That's what Alexandra Bourne did today. She brought her cute twins _ Nadia and Matt _ and a couple of their friends to the beach and they did such a beautiful job. I was so proud and happy to see it!

We were talking a little bit and everybody believes that sharing love is so important!

Nadia and her mom painted 27 rocks altogether and she told me with a big smile and sparkling eyes: "We'll make 27 people happy"!

Thanks, Alexandra!

Word Rocks poem

Handmade by Val

A year and half ago, Val found one of our rocks. 
The message written on it was All my loving, one of the Beatles song (check here).

A couple of weeks later I was hiking with my son when I met a couple on our way. 
Guess what? It was Val and her husband!!!! Believe it or not.

Since then she became a volunteer of the project, spreading rocks in some many different places.

Yesterday she sent me a picture of the new ones she prepared and 
they came along with a cute poem written by her. Adorable!

These wonderful WordRocks!
To be sent out throughout this fine city
Of San Diego
May wherever they go
And whoever does find
May they know
This world has such beauty
May they share and show
So others can also see
upon your lovely website
How it made their day or night

A couple of weeks ago, while riding my bike, I left a happiness rock on a car door handle. Today I got a mail from Tracie and this beautiful picture with an amazing colorful rose.

"Thank you so much for starting this act of kindness! I found a "happiness" rock on my car door handle in Encinitas, California. It instantly changed my day from bad to great!

I love, love, love this!  Totally made my day finding my "happiness" rock. :)"

Thank you!!
