Laconia Daily Sun article— Bank of New Hampshire has initiated a Banking on Kindness project to spread kindness around the community and to help bring awareness to the 40th annual Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction.

Beginning the week of September 20th, local organizations will be placing teal blue Kindness Rocks in popular areas throughout the Greater Lakes Region community. These brightly colored rocks will include inspirational quotes and sayings, designed to cultivate connections within our communities and lift others up through a simple act of kindness. Bank of New Hampshire is using social media to connect with community members who find these Kindness Rocks. For every Kindness Rock that is posted to social media using the official #BankingOnKindness hashtag, Bank of New Hampshire will donate $20 to the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction, now through Oct. 28th.

In the last 40 years, the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction has raised over $7 million, which provides critical services and opportunities to kids throughout the Greater Lakes Region community. The need continues to grow, so we are delighted that Bank of New Hampshire has come up with a new way to spread the word far and wide about the 40th Anniversary of the Auction," said Jaimie Sousa, chairperson of the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction.


This project was inspired by The Kindness Rocks Project whose purpose is simple, to cultivate connections within communities and lift others up through simple acts of kindness.


We encourage everyone to help preserve our public places by following Leave No Trace principles and by avoiding the placement of painted rocks on public lands. Leave No Trace outdoor skills and ethics ensure that everybody who visits our public lands has an equal opportunity to experience the beauty of nature as untouched by humans as possible. Leaving one painted rock might not seem like a big deal, but one has to consider the cumulative impacts of millions of people using our public lands every year. Follow Bank of New Hampshire and the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction on social media, for hints and clues on where you can find Kindness Rocks in your local community.
