This coin was released to Georgene, Hope's aunt and godmother, at her urn committal ceremony held in North Adams, MA on April 20, 2019. It's journey will now begin!
During Hope Days, I gave her a package of my handmade cards so she can use the cards to spread some kindness to people she knows.
Georgene has been sharing kindness with my family as long as I can remember. She is one of my mentors in kindness, thoughtfulness, and making someone feel special. She's been leading by example in a myriad of ways my whole life!
This coin was purchased for Hope Days 2019. Hope Days was founded on May 1, 2015 to celebrate what would be Hope Cookis-McCarthy’s last birthday. She was turning 49 and was nearing the end of a two year battle with stage IV colon cancer. Her tribe of family and friends wanted to show her she was cherished and to bolster her courage to continue the fight as long as she could. Hope’s entire life was based on kindness and empathy for people and animals, always taking care of others and adopting strays from the time she was a child. She put others above herself.
Between May 1-13, we invite you to spread kindness. This can be anything YOU are comfortable doing, for ANYONE you wish to do it for. You are invited to pay it forward and make the world a nicer place in memory of Hope.
