Why we chose this charity
Each month, our GoRock.com rock painting community has a chance to vote for which charity they would like to support. Our community selected Ronald McDonald House Charities.
During the months of November and December (2019) and January (2020), every time our community reaches our goal of painted rocks, GoRock will make a a $25 donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities. And, when rock finders find our members' rocks, they will also have an opportunity to make a donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities. During our last donation period, we had over 1,000 rock finders reach out and ask us for information about how they, too, could make a donation to charity — because they wanted to pay forward the smile our rock painters gave them when they found a painted rock.
Join our GoRock community to paint rocks and participate in Rock It Forward.
About the charity: Ronald McDonald House Charities
According to their website:
"Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support. A Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to call home so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little to no cost."
GoRock is a global community of rock painters. We paint rocks, place them out to be found, and then watch as they spread kindness and happiness to those that find them.
GoRock.com was started by a family in Northeast Ohio who loves painting rocks. They knew their rocks were out there spreading kindness and were curious where their rocks traveled. They created GoRock.com as a way to visualize all the kindness by showing on a map where painted rocks travel and providing a way for rock finders to share their photos and stories about how finding a painted rock made them smile.

GoRock serves as a champion for spreading kindness and paying it forward.
