I received this coin from my high school friend carol and I'm giving it to my coworker who lost his adult son recently. I went to his sons celebration of life and saw his grief.
I am naming this coin Bill / William after a young man that has passed away. I am forwarding the coin onto his father as a memorial coin so he can set it free and see how far the kindness will go.
I am naming this coin David after a family member who died as a young adult. I am sending the coin onto his mother so she can release it as a memorial to him.
This coin is Adam's memorial coin. Adam passed away in his twenties. I am sending it to his father, in MA, to release into the world. May the coin go far and wide and spread a great deal of kindness just like Adam would have done.
I am Ryan's mom, I got this beautiful coin from Carol in honor of my sons birthday on 2/20. He passed away in a motorcycle accident on 4/3/2012. A few weeks before passing he gave me a card. Inside of the card was his signature and a butterfly, the same color as this butterfly on my coin. Memorial weekend 2012. I had all his friends over from his church to my dads cabin, all day I felt I needed to go home. I went and sat on the deck and this butterfly landed on my shoulder and stayed for about 15 minutes. Again the words go home came to me. I said my goodbyes and headed home. I approached Hastings and I was driving down a road I had no idea how I got there. I took another turn and again thought why am I on this road. I drove two blocks up and there was a motorcycle accident. The person was laying on the road, I decided to pull over. I was scared, I had no idea what I was going to see. I approached the young man. He had been drinking and wanted me no where near him. He thought I was going to call the cops and get him thrown in jail. I explained to him I had just lost my son in a motorcycle accident I just wanted to help him. He said oh my gosh are you Rylos mom. I said yes he started crying. I finally convinced him we needed to go to the hospital. When we arrived we talked as we waited. At that time he told me a story that I was very familiar with, parts of the story was missing. You see my son had struggled with alcohol addiction and one day I got a call from an unknown person. My son was in trouble and he was wanting to end his life, he said you need to go here and help him. I called a special police officer from church we found Ryan and he indeed was saved by a special angel who had called me. That special angel was the same man I had helped at his accident scene. God made sure he was there that day to save my son, and God and I believe my son kept telling me to go home that day and drove me to roads I would not usually take that day. Later that day after I had left the hospital they ambulanced him to United. It was once he got there he was told if he had not gone to the hospital he would have died. He had a very very bad night in the hospital. I believe my angel helped him that day. I know this is a long story but this butterfly coin to me is all related. My son used Carol to send me a sign on his birthday. FYI My son gave his life to the Lord three months before he died and had given his addiction up. Praise the Good Lord. My son Ryan on the left. Thank you Carol.
This is Ryan's coin. He was the son of a friend of mine. He passed away and 2/20 was his birthday. I sent her the coin for his birthday so she can pass it forward and follow the story of her son's coin. We know each other through Facebook and have never actually met.
This coin has been lost in the mail. If anyone finds it please post on here so I can track it down please.
Originally this was Ryan's coin. He was the son of a friend of mine. He passed away and 2/21 was his birthday. I sent her the coin for his birthday so she could pass it forward and follow the story of her son's coin. I have sent her a new coin to replace this missing one.
Hi, my name is Carol. I am participating in a 365 Days of "Kindness Wins" project. You can find us on Facebook.
Doing this project I have discovered if you are down or worried about something, having to plan kindnesses keeps your mind occupied on good positive, things and makes you fell a lot happier.
I am giving it to my dear friend Loretta. I am calling it Matt's coin for her son that passed away. She has some things on her mind and I think having a kindness to plan will help her.
Hi, my name is Carol and I am participating in a 365 Days of "Kindness Wins" project. You can find us on Facebook. For Christmas I bought 10 of these coins.
This coin I sent to KTIS radio station along with a small donation. The radio station is a Christian radio station out of Minnesota. The last 12+ years have been rather rough with a very long of stint of care-taking, family in hospitals, many job issues, etc. The radio station is always on in my car and has lifted me up and kept me going on many days.
I sent a donation as part of a thank you for being a part of my life. I figured this would be a great starting point for releasing one of the Butterfly Coins, too! I included it in the envelope and hope it goes far!

There was a little boy named Johbis Keita. He died in March of 2018 at the age of 4. He had AVM which is an abnormal connection between the arteries and veins. He loved to play with dinosaurs and said that when they roared it meant "I love you" in dinosaur. His family and friends hide dinosaurs for other kids to find. It is to honor him and to promote awareness of AVM. You can find out more about him at "Roaring for Johbis Group" on Facebook. You can learn more about AVM at AVMalformation.org.
Today, my little 4 year old granddaughter Zoe will be hiding a dinosaur along with the coin for some family to find. I hope they will continue to pass forward the coin!
