Very soon this butterfly will be given to my Sister Peggy when she comes to visit me and we go to Summerfest - the largest musical festival in the world. Peggy had a knee replacement and I went and stayed with her for a few days to help her out and drive her to physical therapy. Peggy is an absolute joy to be around and has a heart of pure gold. Her problem will be who to give this butterfly to as she is ALWAYS showing kindness and will do anything for anyone! Love you Sis.
My little niece has brought this coin to the west coast of Ireland!! Its currently in a little village called Ballylongford in Co.Kerry!!
As my girls have become quite the butterfly chasers and worm diggers, they’ve learned a lot from their discovery experiences. They’ve explored not only the great outdoors but also the compassion and delicate balance of life. They’ve befriended some other adventurous friends, and we are passing our coin on to one of my oldest girl’s little buddies who also isn’t afraid of a little dirt. Adventure awaits!
Happy Anniversary Jim and Sue!
We're so glad to have you for our neighbors and our family. We appreciate everything you do: from planting trees and flowers, sharing your love of birds with us, to hosting family holidays in your home. Thank you!
Jenny and Andy
I'm passing along this coin to my beautiful "naturalist" daughter, Jessica, and her family (husband Dave, daughters Julia & Maria). They all love and enjoy the great outdoors, nature and all its beauty and I know they'll take very good care of this coin and pass it on to the best person possible. I appreciate the thoughtful kindness of my co-workers and will miss them terribly, but I now know that their thoughtfulness will give joy and be spread hopefully far & wide via this traveling coin!!
Labor and Delivery is losing one of our best Nurses and a great Friend! We have all enjoyed working with you over the years, and you will certainly be missed. Hopefully all of those extra hours you put in to help out your team will now allow you to have fun and many travels during your retirement :-)
Your co-workers at Aurora
You are a such a wonderful Nurse and Friend. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and 40 YEARS of experience with all of us. It just won't be the same without you! Enjoy your retirement--you certainly deserve it :-)
Your Co-workers from Aurora
Thanks, Jenny. I love this project. I'd like to pass on the coin to Katie MacDonald. Katie ran into someone at WalMart who couldn't afford to buy diapers for his child. Katie picked up the tab and made another person's day better. Way to look out for those in need!
Every year I collect monarch eggs and caterpillars, raise them to butterflies, and release them. At the end of the season I also tag them. I love that this coin has a monarch butterfly! I also LOVE the idea behind "The Butterfly Effect of Kindness".
Dr. Voskuil sent out an email today that was directly related to this idea:
"Take the time today to pick out someone for this project, even just one person. Your person can be a co-worker, a patient, or a stranger. Be intentional with this; make it something outside of your normal duties. Tell yourself—"I’m going to make that person’s life better today” with a kind word, a work of service, or a random act of kindness. It does not have to be something big, it just has to be sincere. See if it doesn’t give you joy just as much as it gives joy to others." So Dr. V, this coin's for you!
Please add your story to our coin, and pay it forward! I look forward to following along on this coin's journey <3
