Kindness Rocks Naperville

One Naperville mom is proving that even the smallest act of kindness truly does rock. Ann Zediker created the “Kindness Rocks Naperville” project, getting people of all ages to paint rocks, many with inspirational messages, and hide them throughout the city’s many parks for others to find. Those who have found one can go to the Facebook group of the same name to post pictures and connect with whomever first placed the rock. ‘The Learning Express’ store in south Naperville is holding a free event on Saturday where kids ages five and up can participate in the rock-painting project.
