Coin Stories

I bought and made my boss a margarita and gave him the coin to take to the city with him (better chance to spread its wings as I’m living in a very small town!)

Purchased in December, 2018. Ready to be released into the wild!

Now its in my pocket! Thank you so much for paying it forward <3

This coin and idea all started with you. 7 in total that I have given out this holiday sesson. Each one with their own journey. Your generosity and the way you look at the world is inspiring. You're warm and a light to many people who meet you. You've inspired me to change the world and these 7 coins will do just that. It's no coincidence that I have started with 7 coins and they will forever be out there inspiring the next person. It all started with you. Take this coin and pass it on. Keep this code so you can look back and see the impact you've had on people. And always remember this.. It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world.

Saw these on Facebook and thought it was a great idea, so I purchased a few to set them free in my local community - Morehead City, NC.
I wish to remain anonymous, but I hope many kind deeds will result once I set it free.

In my pocket.....I set this butterfly free in the mall, while taking my mom Christmas shopping. Bought a random stranger breakfast. I think it made her morning! Pay it forward, and fly on.

Purchased coins because my friend, Kaori, started this with her husband. One of their missions is "to perform large, publicly-visible random acts of kindness with a significant portion of their profits" and I like that.

I gave this coin to my daughter as a special gift. I love you.

Merry Christmas! Starting this coin off with my friends that have stood by me through the good and bad times.

This coin is for a beautiful and talented young lady, whom I have always called my “Butterfly”. My wish for her is to use it to spread kindness. Always remember: Love > Hate. I love you, dear Kaia. ~Nana

Hello world!! I’ve just been born...YAY!!

My very first person to care for me is:
Dale S. Nimmo in Springfield Missouri ( sometimes pronounced - Misery, hahaha 😄😄😄)

Dale is a single guy now, 62 in 2018
His golden point of light is his son Jordan who is 32 in 2018 and his diamond jewel is now his daughter-in-law, Elyse.

Dale has a passion for cycling and hopes to very soon make a trek from Springfield to Bandon Beach, Oregon via the Trans-America Trail.

Feel free to contact him anytime at dsnimmo@gmail.com

Remember that if you were given this coin, it’s not really yours to keep. Butterflies are meant to be free and fly far and wide. So while you can enjoy this coin for awhile, release it to someone else and let it continue its epic journey

We wish you love and joy, kindness and compassion, in all things and in all places for all creatures great and small.

This butterfly coin began its journey as a Christmas gift in 2018 to the members of my company's Technology Compliance team. Our team is kind-hearted and charity-oriented, and we are starting these butterfly coins on their journey in the hope that the kindness and giving they represent can spread far and wide. Merry Christmas!

This coin was given to my daughter by a very dear friend. This person has a heart of gold. We will be carrying this coin with us until we can can pass it on to keep its journey alive

This coin was given to me by a very dear friend along with some awesome Christmas gifts. It may be awhile before this coin continues its journey

I read a article in a newspaper about a family man named Zac Denton from Nebraska City, Nebraska. I very rarely read the newspaper and yet for some reason this article stuck in my head. Zac has been diagnosed with advanced kidney disease in which he has 2 options for treatment. Dialysis or a transplant.

I have never met Zac. But what I do know about him from reading the article is this. He is a hard worker choosing to remain working full time as long as he can. He is a family man with his loving wife Hilda and son named William ( Junior) .

Zac isn't asking for riches, trips, or fancy cars. In fact, he isn't asking for anything, but a chance to wrestle with his 6 year old son Junior in the near future and someday owning a pet for his son. Having a pet right now isn't a option due to a chance of infection.

So Zac, this Butterfly Coin is from me to you. We may not know each other and this coin may or may not find you a kidney donor. But then again, it just might. There are now 7 billion people in this world and you only need one healthy kidney. Why not you????

For whomever is reading this, you can help Zac two ways. By simply checking the organ & tissue box when getting your drivers license, you may be able to help him out if something were to happen to you. The other way is to fill out a form and visit secure.nebraskamed.com/livingdonor since it is unnecessary for a healthy person to have 2 kidneys.

Zac, I am releasing this butterfly coin to you in hopes of finding some miracle out there far and wide. Let's send this coin as far as we possibly can and see what happens! You just have to pass this coin along with a good deed and the journey keeps moving forward. With the unique code on the back, we can forever track your journey.

It is with the sincerest intention that this brings you positive vibes, faith in the human race and hope.

Gave this coin as a gift to a sweet friend......hoping she spreads kindness with it.....fly on!

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.

My Sister in Christ and I were meeting at a Wendy's when my sister offered an opportunity for a young lady to look at our $5 jewelry. Next thing we knew, we were talking about God. Then we were presented with this coin.

In my pocket......

To a sweet and compassionate friend, Merry Christmas. Fly on and pay it forward.

I’m giving this coin to my beautiful daughter. I’m so proud of her for being so open to change. It takes courage and strength to move across the country and start a new school. She had to make some new friends and such.

She is one of the sweetest girls ever. I love you so much Christa.

I’m giving this coin to my mother. She has been taking care of my step father since he had back surgery 4 months ago. He’s been in and out of the hospital countless times.

She also just one a major golf tournament after breaking her wrist 4 months ago.

I’m super proud of her for winning and for being so loving to Jim.

I just received my coin on Thursday,it made me smile I was feeling happy funnily enough.So at the moment I want to keep it to myself for now as I have been going through some really awful times so holding it for a bit makes me feel lucky and honoured to have one ,so when I know the time is right to pass it on I shall happily do that .

This coin arrived in Currituck, North Carolina, in December of 2018, to be given as "Secret Santa" gift at an office Christmas party. It was officially released on the morning of December 15th in Norfolk, Virginia. The extra beauty of this gift is that the company we work for is aptly named, Butterfly Effects! I look forward to following the progression of kindness as this first butterfly finds its wings and takes flight.
