International Drop a Rock Day: Help Spread the Message That "You Matter" by Renee Herren

International Drop a Rock Day: Help Spread the Message That "You Matter"

The third annual International Drop a Rock Day is almost here! On July 3, people from all over the world, many of whom belong to rock painting groups, will paint and hide rocks for others to find. What’s special about the rocks hidden on International Drop a Rock Day is that they all have the same message. The theme this year is “You Matter.” 

The purpose of painting and hiding a rock with "You Matter" is to bring hope to those who might be discouraged or questioning their significance in the world. By sharing a simple message – you matter – you have the opportunity to be a positive influence in someone’s life. Finding a painted rock by chance might just be the reminder that lifts the finder’s spirits and brightens their outlook.

A simple act of kindness can make a powerful impact, so please join me on July 3 and make a difference!

Happy rock painting, hiding and possibly finding! Remember: You matter!

Please post photos of your "You Matter" rocks below!

I LOVE this. Every time I see one I smile and feel happy. I always leave it there for someone else to pick up who might need it more than I do. I never considered painting my own, but now I think I just might! Thanks for the photos; they are really inspiring.
