My Name is Scottycat and I live in Glasgow Scotland and am one of the Cam Mods for FFRC.
My neighbour is 82 years old, lives alone and is fiercely independent and will not ask anyone for help whatsoever. Her two sons live abroad but do keep in regular touch with her. A few months ago I noticed when speaking to her she was showing what looked like me signs of a stroke, her left eye was drooping and her speech was slurred. I insisted that she should see her doctor , reluctantly she did and it was confirmed indeed she had suffered from a stroke. As she refused any help from Care Givers, I managed to persuade her to get a key safe installed outside her house so that if she fell or became unwell I could let myself in and call a doctor. She also agreed that she would pull her window blind down at night and lift it in the morning to let me know she was alive and well as she did not want me having to either visit her everyday or phone her. This is working perfectly for both of us, it gives me peace of mind and her sons know that I am looking out for her but respecting her independence and privacy too.

First of all, I would like to apologize for not adding a story any sooner. I received the coin shortly before my trip to the most wonderful place on this planet for rescued cats/kittens (and humans): Friends of Felines Rescue Center in Defiance, OH.
Afterwards other projects came up... Again sorry for the delay.
Such a great idea to have this coin travel all over the world!
My good deed:
The office where I go to work is located close to a bridge where lots of doves are breeding. Unfortunately many of the chicks fall out of their nests and end up on the street with many cars/trams speeding by. I know that the majority of people think that doves are the "rats of the sky" but when I see those poor animals lying on the ground, I just have to safe them. So off I go, together with a box and all dressed up for the office, under the bridge to try to catch them. People driving/walking by of course think I'm a crazy nut collecting/chasing the doves but that doesn't bother me a bit. Luckily there's a rescue center for doves in Frankfurt, where one can bring the chicks or injured. The last couple of years I rescued approx. 10 doves.
JodyJ, Sellersburg, Indiana, March 26, 2019 I recieved this coin from my friends at Friends of Felines. Little do they know how much they have done and do, not only for the cats, catdog, horses, donkey, goat, peacocks, ducks, geese, etc... but for each other and the humans on the other side of the camera. All of them doing what they do everyday has brought joy, tears, excitement, and friendship to so many on the other side of the cam & brought everyone into the FFRC nation. Recieving this coin from special friends, who after all that they do everyday, thought of sending it to me. About my good deed, I am a nurse, I care for the ill & dying. It's my job, I was trained how to do it, but it's just a job until one day you find that you care more for the people your caring for than you once did. After a 12 hour shift & caring for a person that was dying, who had no family, I stayed for 5 more hours (off the clock) to hold her hand until the end. I wasn't asked to do this, but I felt she shouldn't be by herself when it was time.
Defiance, OH March 25, 2019 A person we know of had lost her job and couldn't take care of her cats. She was hoping it was a temporary problem because she was looking for a new job. She loves her cats and so wanted to keep them. Steve and I were able to supply her with a month of dry food and litter to tide her over. Jacci, Friends of Felines Rescue Center
