How to track your painted rocks using GoRock.com

Tracking your painted rocks is simple with GoRock.com

Ever paint a rock, place it, go back to see if it's still there and see that it's been picked up, but never hear from the rock again? You're not alone — many rock painters are curious where their painted rocks end up. Sure, we paint rocks as a random act of kindness and to help brighten someone's day, not for the recognition. But, our painted rocks are out there traveling and it's only natural to wonder where they end up.

That's where GoRock.com comes in. GoRock provides a way to be able to see on a map where painted rocks travel. And, you'll get a notification each time one of your rocks is found. Rock finders also have the ability to see on a map where that rock has traveled, and they can leave a message about finding the rock. And, all rocks painted with GoRock lead to donations to charity. GoRock has really elevated the rock painting experience!

We get it. Being able to see on a map where your painted rock travels is a new concept and may be different from what you're used to doing (for example, if you're part of local Facebook rock painting group).

See where your painted rocks travel & spread joy

Your painted rocks are out there traveling and with GoRock.com, you can see where your rocks are spreading happiness and smiles.

And, not only do you get to see this map – the rock finder also gets to see it. The rock finder is a big part of the rock’s journey, so being able to visualize that leg of the rock’s journey is another way we’re helping to put a smile on someone’s face.

Be notified when your rock is found

We realize you’re curious if your painted rock was ever picked up. That’s why, every time one of your painted rocks has been logged by the finder as found, we’ll let you know! Simply open that email to see the map and to read any notes the rock finder has left for you about their experience finding your rock.
Our members report having more rocks posted as found since joining GoRock*.
There are several reasons for this:
  1. We make it easy for the rock finder. No group to join — they simply visit GoRock.com from their phone, tablet or computer and enter the ID from the back of the rock.
  2. Rather than a hashtag that anyone can use, GoRock uses a unique ID. Each rock is unique — the ID should be, too!
  3. We're a website, not an app or social media. Not everyone is on Facebook, and no one wants to have to download an app just to post that they found a rock. We make it super easy to let you know your rock has been found.

 

*We can't guarantee a rock will be posted. That would mean we could control human behavior and that would just be weird. What we can control is the experience a rock finder would use to tell you they found your rock — and, we've done just that when we designed GoRock.com to be super simple.

Hide your painted rock, then GoRock will let you know when it has been found and will show on a map where it has traveled.

Paying it forward, one painted rock at a time

As if all of that wasn't cool enough, when you join our GoRock community, you're painting with a purpose. That's because every rock painted with GoRock leads to donations to charity through our Rock It Forward program.

And, rock finders can also pay it forward. Every time someone finds one of your painted rocks and logs it as found, they're presented with the opportunity to make a donation to the chosen charity (all because of the smile your rock put on their face!) And, the Pay It Forward chain reaction is working! To date, we've had more than 3,000 rock finders reach out to us asking how they, too, can donate. Way to paint with a purpose!

Your painted rocks are out there spreading kindness — GoRock.com visualizes all of that kindness and helps us feel connected, one painted rock at a time!
