RHINELANDER - Be on the lookout for rare rocks with inspiring messages crafted on them.
The Kindness rock movement has found its way to Rhinelander.
Anitgo native Stepheni CUrran made a stop in the Northwoods to promote her new book, "Rock on Kindness! Pass it on!"
She said she wrote the book to promote kindness, diversity, and acceptance of others through kindness rocks.
She read her book to children at the Holiday Acres Resort.
After she shared her message, the kids created their own rock design.
"I think kids just want to be helpful and they want to promote kindness themselves," Curran said. "So this is
something that kids and adults and all ages can really do. So that's why I really enjoy going around touring Wisconsin to promote these valid themes."
Some of the rocks the kids painted will be placed all throughout the resort for others to find.
Holiday Acres plans to start its own kindness rock initiative alongside the Hodag Rock group.
"The aspect of hiding the rocks around Holiday Acres or if they chose to take them home, hiding them around their home or around town and the idea that someone else is going to find them and find this awesome message or this cool picture that they made," said Jenni Kotula, general manager of Holiday Acres. "It's pretty great."
Kotula said promoting a local author and a strong message was the resort's way of supporting the community.
