Did you know National Random Acts of Kindness Day is February 17th? What an amazing opportunity to spread some good in the world by doing something generous for others. It could be as small as paying the toll for the person behind you to greeting everyone you see with a smile. In preparation for the release of Same Kind of Different as Me on Blu-ray, Paramount Pictures has partnered with The Kindness Rocks Project to promote acts of kindness. Read on for more details about this inspiring film and our fun DIY painted rocks project!

The boys along with their cousin had a blast creating special rocks for Random Acts of Kindness Day. They’re so excited to hide the rocks for others to find, and hopefully make their day a little brighter.
