Hey all! If you haven’t already please join the Facebook Group Donate Life Rock Painting for Awareness.

Simple, you find rocks, you paint them whatever, you write whatever, you can use stickers, etc and than you place them out in the public to be found and replaced to raise awareness to organ donation.

Above is my first bunch with made with my family.

Also for next month, in US National Donate Life Month, April 11th is Create Donate Life Rock Day.

    I love this. My donor did this rock & sent to me 3 mos after transplant. She & her kids have been painting uplifting message rocks & placing them around on their walks for years. This one is almost 9 yrs old. Such a beautiful coincidence that is heart shaped. I truly love it and keep it in view all the time.

    MaryR what a beautiful jester. I absolutely love this. Next month is a very special month for donors and their families πŸ’šπŸ’™ I always get in contact with my donor family and honor my donor every April.

    @Jdboogy53 , @MaryR when attaching images, it's best to use the image/media icon at the bottom (inside the message box). If it's a link you'd like to posy, please use the link icon,

    < >. If it's some sort of attachment/document that you're trying to send - please use the paper clip icon.

    Thank you!

    @Sdey0522 I did use the image icon - should I use the clip image next time?

    I follow Donate Life Rock Painting also and it really great! Some friends and I have started to paint them to take with us as we travel this summer. I do some in honor of my donor and some for my God Son who was a donor and lost his life in 2021in a motorcycle wreck and some just to remind people to be a donor. Check out their site on Facebook. I’m not very talented but I really enjoy spreading the word in such a fun way!!

    Would love to have this fb group join us here!!

    Sam - can we invite them???

    I fear fb and feel safer here among my peers...

    I agree, Karin! I would love to see anyone from that group join us here. I fear that there are a lot of "bots" in the FB world, and I love to make connections here in a safe space. I would also love to see the creative rocks people are making!

    This is such a cool idea. Love it!!! I'll see if I can motivate my son to color a few stones with me. I'll share them once we did.

    This is so fun! I will be doing it this year. I have a walking path I walk every morning. I have seen painted rocks there before. I will probably leave them along the path. 😊

    Here are my Donate Life rocks. I am definitely not an artist πŸ˜†
