This coin is in my pocket, waiting for the right opportunity to release it along with a random act of kindness, hoping to track it as people pay it forward. I'll update it's story as soon as it's been released!
I'm excited to follow all 105 coins originating in Hamburg, Iowa.
I just gave this coin to a young lady and her mom who had ran out of gas 1/2 mile from the gas station. My wife was driving a few minutes ahead of me, and stopped when she saw the young lady walking on the side of the road, having just left her mom in their vehicle on the side of the road, out of gas. the daughter was walking towards the gas station. My wife called me and told me what was going on, so I just drove past them to the gas station, got a gas can and a couple gallons of gas, and brought it to them. We put the gas in their vehicle and got them on their way to the station to fill up their tank. I hope we made their day a little easier, and they pay it forward to someone they meet!
Hi I am the young Lady to witch he refers. What He said was a 100% true. They are absolutely an amazing couple. We need to mention that not only did he go and get us enough gas to make it to the gas station but when they return they refused to be reimbursed for the gas or the gas can. My mother and I tried very hard to make them take the cash but they refused. In stead they gave me this wonderful beautiful coin and explained what we needed to do. What they did not know is that my family an I have had a rough go of it this year. I was truly losing faith in the holidays (not to be Cindy Lou Who about it). It was extremely hard to recall the Christmas spirt and feel the magic that I once felt at this time of year. When this wonderful husband a wife stopped for my mother and I when they didn't have to completely warmed my heart. They truly were our Mr& Mrs. Claws this year. This was the best gift I received, the gift will never leave my heart. Thank you so much for reminding me what Christmas is all about.. I can not wait to pass the kindness on.
