I’m thrilled to announce a wondereful collaboration with PLAE shoes and my daughther Alia’s kindness project, the Rainbow Rock Project. If you recall, Alia started leaving rainbow rocks out in the world in early 2016 with help from kind strangers across the world to sponsor a rock for $1.

Alia has donated all funds raised to her cause of choice, the Bay Area Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter.

To date she has raised over $2500 for the Mission. Below is her first milestone check for $2132 which she proudly presented to them.

What has been great is the support Alia has seen around the world of people making their own rainbow rocks and leaving them out to spread kindness. You can follow along our Instagram @Rainbowrockproject and visit hashtag #rainbowrockproject to see examples of rainbow rocks across the world!

My kids and I are huge fans of PLAE shoes for their durable, colorful, and changeable tabs to customize your own unique shoes.

So when they reached out to us to feature Alia as one of their first Kid Ambassador for their PLAE-it-forward community program, we were super excited! As part of their program, Alia got to design her own tabs – rainbow colored ones of course!
