Pittsburgh Rocks - spreading kindness one rock at a time

I have written about this group before, (See Paint a rock. Hide the rock. Find a rock.) but saw that the PG picked up the story today. Pittsburgh Rocks is a Facebook group that aims to spread kindness.

The Facebook group is now a closed group with over 6,200 members. To join, send a request. Today, my granddaughter found a rock outside of Trader Joe's. It made her day, as it does with everyone who finds them. The rock was then hidden in a different location, waiting to make someone else's day.

Castle Shannon resident, Cynthia Golebie got the idea while traveling in Ohio in February. They were seeking solace as they continued to grieve the loss of their 24-year-old daughter, Amanda, who died unexpectedly in August 2015. Cynthia has painted and hidden over 200 rocks all over, including Rockwood Park.

You rock, Cynthia! Thank you for spreading kindness one rock at a time.
