Kindness is Contagious

Kindness is Contagious

Youturn has invited 500 children from six schools in the Noosa-Sunshine Coast region, to participate in an initiative, where we are encouraging the sharing of kindness in a painted rock treasure hunt.

To involve the wider community, including our local schools and raise awareness of the work that Youturn does on the Sunshine Coast, Youturn has launched #YouturnRocks.

The idea is based on painting smooth colourful rocks with positive or inspirational messages and then placing them in areas around the coastal parks and path, for others to find.  One message on a rock, we hope can make an impact or a difference to someone who is feeling lonely, depressed or maybe even living rough.

The rocks which are hidden, are intended to be picked up, photographed and put on Facebook / Instagram with the hashtag #YouturnRocks, and then re-hidden in a different spot.

We will also be hiding some very special rocks painted by local artists and challenging our communities to help us locate these treasured rocks.  So on your daily walks around your neighbourhood, keep an eye out for our #YouturnRocks!

Our organisation is a company limited by guarantee. We are registered with the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC), classified a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.
