FIRST of all THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! I was a Kindergarten/First Grade teacher for 35 years. I used the bucket filler program in my classroom. (Hopefully you are aware of that program) I am now retired and felt like I needed to do something to carry that program into the world and wasn’t sure how to do it. Then Cape Cod magazine arrived! YAHOOOOO! WE visit the Cape almost every summer and stay in Chatham, had been to your jewelry store I think. Anyway I have joined and will begin the endeavor here in DE. I would like to concentrate on shelters, hospitals and the cancer center where I was treated 15 years ago. I began collecting heart rocks 15 years ago and placing them in jars and bowls and any way I could on display in my house to remind myself of the love available in nature. Again thank you! L.E.

Hi L.E.,

Thank you so much for reaching out to after reading the article in Cape Cod Life Magazine. I am so happy you enjoyed the article. I am a bit overwhelmed by all of the attention the project has received as it started as an anonymous personal hobby , however, many have now joined and it has become somewhat of a much larger movement.  I never imagined that it would take this course, however I am grateful to be able to touch so many others with one idea of promoting simple acts of kindness. I think your idea is great, shelters, hospitals, etc. are great places to share the inspiration. I am corresponding currently with a woman in a shelter in the Bronx NY who wants to join us, and I told her to simply begin by leaving positive messages for others in the shelter on scrap paper, hidden in plain sight for others to find. This truly is a wonderful way to make a small difference in the lives of others. I am so happy to be a part of that, even if I have to move out of my personal comfort zone to lead this movement. Please keep me in the loop through email, on your efforts, as they will inspire me and countless others.

Kindly, M.M. The Kindness Rocks Project
