Intention & Symbolism
Travelling Kindness Rocks are sent to people going through a difficult time in their lives with the intention of bringing them a gesture of support. Painted by trained volunteer team members, they are a symbolic token of kindness from the thousands of people around the world who financially support the Travelling Kindness Rocks through their purchases and involvement in Otauna.
Each Travelling Kindness Rock is accompanied by a letter that explains the program, including the symbolism of the painted stones:
Black Background: The black base represents the difficult time in the recipient's life.
Centre White Dot: The first to be painted, the centre white dot signifies hope and the focus of one's spiritual beliefs.
Colourful Dots: The organized dots of the mandala symbolize our united gesture of kindness and interconnectedness.
