A few months ago Joy Elliott was online looking
for fun ways to entertain her grandchildren when
she found Lakeland Rocks. Lakeland Florida was
encouraging people to paint rocks and hide them
around town for others to find and enjoy - painting,
hiding, finding - all fun activities. She posted on St.
Simons Live Update “wonder if we could do something
like this here?” SSI Rocks was up and running!
Their Facebook page, SSIrocks, now has over 3,000
members! Post your creations and your finds on
Instgram at #ssirocks.

and my role models. During difficult or stressful
moments in my life, I found myself looking for
“signs” on my morning walk, such as a heart shaped
rock or a piece of sea glass. I perceived these small
beach treasures as “signs” or as a divine message
and the random inspiration I needed to signify that
things would be o.k. Maybe I wasn’t the only one
looking for such signs!” says Megan. Thus The
Kindness Rocks Project was born and now has
Back on St. Simons SSI Rocks is flourishing - and
