Students in Pittsford spreading kindness using tiny rocks
Pittsford, N.Y. (WHAM) - Students at the Mendon Center Elementary School are spreading a message of love and kindness using tiny rocks.
The Kindness Rocks Project - a nationwide movement - aims to make people happy by finding inspirational messages.
Over the last few weeks, students have been painting inspirational messages onto dozens of small rocks.
The children will take the rocks with them to random places where other people in the community will be able to find them.
Second grader Marisa Overy said she wants to share the good in the world with everyone.
"It spreads kindness to the world," Overy said.
Celine Arikkat is a first grader and wants people to be inspired by her messages.
"Mine says inspire," Arikkat said. "Because I want a person to be inspired by the rock and then they'll think they should make a rock and hide it near here and then another person will see it and it'll keep going and going and going. I learned that if you spread kindness the world will be a better place."
The organizers behind the project said more than 900 rocks were painted by students and teachers.
