So what's up with all the rocks?
During the months of October and November, you'll likely see painted rocks popping up all over the community. It's part of a nationwide movement that AIC Leesburg is participating in, one geared towards inspiring and uplifting the people of Leesburg. There's been a lot of bad stuff going on in the world recently, and it's so easy to get caught up in the negativity. The rocks are our special way of adding some unexpected happiness to the lives of our fellow Leesburg neighbors! Our staff has been working tirelessly over the past month to hand paint dozens of rocks, and we'll be "hiding" them throughout the city of Leesburg for passersby to discover. We hope that when you stumble upon one (figuratively, of course) it brightens up your day a little bit!
What do I do if I find one?
The fun doesn't stop once you've found one of our AIC rocks! When you find one, turn it in to our Leesburg office and you'll be entered into a drawing to win one of two awesome prize baskets: one for kids, one for adults! Any children who turn in a rock will not only be entered into the contest, they'll also head home with a sweet treat! Once you've turned in the rock we'll hide it in the community again for someone else to find, and the fun continues!
How can I help?
If, like us, you love the rock movement and want to help bring some positivity into the Leesburg community, there are a number of ways you can help spread some cheer!
1) Paint rocks and drop them off at our center for our staff to hide throughout the community
2) Spread the word on social! When you find one of our rocks out in the community, take a photo of it and share it on Facebook or Instagram with an uplifting saying and the hashtag #AICrocks. It's a great way to bring the movement to the attention of others and flood social media with positive quotes and adorable photos!
