After 3 years I am passing this coin onto Courtney Garland as a personal recognition for the amazing and selfless work she has done for Stone Ridge Veterinary Hospital, especially on our journey to AAHA accreditation. Her dedication does not go unnoticed and I am so grateful to have her as part of my team and to count her as a friend. Words are not enough to show her how valued she is but I hope she knows that she is priceless!
The coin came from my wife who gave it to our granddaughter. She never used it and gave it to me.
I met a lady today in her 70’s who is still working and does not expect to be able to retire. She washes, dries, and folds people’s clothing. She was very helpful so I struck up a conversation with her.
We talked about our children and grandchildren and she told me how she had raised several of her grandchildren. One in particular was very difficult but has become a wonderful person and mother. Anyway when I left I handed her $50 and the coin, hoping to brighten her day. She seemed very surprised and touched.
This coin got to my hands from someone very special... Someone with great, kind heart, who made a major difference in my life. She helped me with opening up and seeing world and myself through different perspective. We shared our stories about Blue Butterfly...
I am forever grateful to this beautiful person and will hold her in my thoughts and heart forever....
Received this meaningful coin from dear friends that I happened to meet by chance through our mutual love of dogs. I have had this coin for three years and it has helped and guided me through some hard times that life throws your way.
I am passing it on so that this 'butterfly' may help others who are always kind in heart. Thank you.
I've held on to this coin long enough and have found the perfect person to pass it on to. During the pandemic Bitsy D. was one of many Zumba instructors to teach via social media but Bitsy choose to teach on zoom free of charge to all of her students. But now that "lockdown" has been over for quite some time she not only has her home life, her work life, teaching Zumba at a health facility, she is one of the only instructors I know that continues to teach over Zoom and it's still free to all her students. And that's just one of the many acts of kindness Bitsy has done.
Received my coin as a Christmas present from my sister Deb. I think Deb and myself will "Be the Good" together, coming up with ideas of how to do this the best. Once we decide on what we are going to do, I will come back and update this story. Some choices are: helping a homeless person or helping a low income elderly person.
I just bought this coin from a thrift store. I love butterflies and they are one of my spirit animals. I saw this coin and I thought it was so cute and I love the name of the butterfly effect. One small thing can make such a big effect on us. That’s the butterfly effect. I love to give back I had to get it. I’m not sure yet who I’m going to pass it to next but it will be someone who has a good spirit as well. I love to give back and help the world that’s why we’re here. Always remember to do good and be the light. Butterflies are so beautiful I remember this story. Everyone in the world can see a butterflies wings but Itself. The whole world gets to enjoy its beauty but then. Imagine you can’t even see your own beauty in yourself that the world sees. But it still continues to carry on. You have such a impact on this world
Location is actually San Simeon, CA. Coin 27vt-7xz. I couldn't correct it.
I forgot to mention that I was honored to know Mareyna's godmother. She was one of the loveliest, kindest, sweetest, most spiritual and compassionate angels you could ever know. A great loss for those of us left behind.
This coin has not traveled far. It is in the same small town of Cambria, CA. I received it nearly two years ago from my sweet friend and "Fairy Goddaughter" Reyna after my dear, devoted father, Robert Louis Mayer, died. I happen to know the sweet man who started this coin rolling, her "birth-brother" and it is exactly like him to constantly reach out. Both of them are huge-hearted humans.
My father died alone on January 15, 2021. In a quarantined Kaiser hospital in Panorama City, Southern California, of Pneumonia, Congestive Heart failure, Renal failure and Covid-19.
---- Days before he died, and days after, my mom had some episodes of irrational behavior. Her memory loss, suddenly much worse, was found to be Alzheimers disease months later. She needed a memory-care facility. My sister and dear sister-in-law found a great facility near their homes, 6 to 7 hours away from me. We had to move mom. It was devastating. I felt like a traitor abandoning my dear, giving, exceptional and saintly mother. I am not kidding, look up her obituary I wrote on Legacy.com Margaret Regina (McGowan) Mayer. We also had to let go of the family home of 60 years. It took my sister and I five months before our siblings helped us. Every month we sorted through mountains of things, tens of thousands of papers, photos, etcetera. Donating countless things. I visited mom as often as I could, called every day, wrote every few days. It was very hard. Covid-19 kept her friends from visiting. My siblings gave her frequent phonecalls and visits, packages of goodies, shopping sprees, lunches out whenever possible. When she was sad or frustrated, it was devastating for my sister and I especially. She died on St. Patrick's day this year, 14 months after our father. I am still picking up the pieces, as I ignored my own life for three years helping my/our parents. I cry more easily now, but have caring family and dear friends/extended family. I know that I did everything I could to help and comfort my parents. And, obviously, dear souls in my life have comforted me. I am blessed and grateful.
Love each other, embrace your family, friends, and even strangers if you can. One smile, hug, handshake, and/or kind word and gesture can brighten someone's day or save a life. Their value is beyond measurement and they are healing to the spirit and the soul.
LOVE, LOVE. LOVE.
My co-worker gave me this coin when met, in person due to Covid and regional restrictions, for the first time at a work conference. On that particular day I'd had a rough start with my printer and getting to work equipped and on time. I slipped in for the start of a working lunch session, late and a bit ashamed, and she said here I have something for you. I was surprised and the timing of the gesture was really nice. Working with the military made me immediately identify the beautiful coining as a kind gesture even though I wasn't sure what it was. I actually think I teared up a bit.
I kind of forgot about this for a while and recently my family's moved through a half dozen temporary housing situations this fall trying to save to buy a house again so we don't have to keep uprooting our family in this unstable rental market. It's been really rough and somehow in the midst of living out of suitcases for the last five months this coin has resurface right after our whole 5 person family stayed with my cousin for two weeks when a pipe broke in the RV we were staying in.
We're in an apt now for the winter and I'm putting together Christmas gifts. I wanted to give my cousin a special gift this year after her graciousness to us. She so freely offered for us to crowd the hell out of her with little notice. She just so happens to love butterflies too so I'm tucking this into her gift basket.
This coin was “set free” in March 2022. It was gifted to Allison H. At Covenant Presbyterian Church. Allison got a new Taylor Guitar, & I surprised her with a mother of pearl Truss cover for it. She is such a blessing to so many people & she simply glows when she’s playing her guitar.
I gave her the butterfly coin & asked her to pay it forward.
I am passing this coin to a wonderful woman, Emily Hawkins. Emily's program Market Me, along with Emily's guidance, leveled me up in my career. She gave me the tools, motivation, and the confidence to apply for a position that was more of a dream position. I nailed it. I am helping more people and making more money than I ever have, and I am so grateful to her. Thank you, Emily. You have changed my life. One day, when I make it to Georgia, I am coming to see you to hug you in person! Thank you for all you do! <3

I was helping him with his tasks as he was new in this, ad had way to much work to to handed down to him from management, and no assistance there at all.

Now it is my turn to give this coin to another.

This coin is traveling from Baltimore to Pittsburg to honor JoAnne; a “sister friend” and “kindred spirit.” JoAnne’s gift of friendship and love has never waivered. She has been by my side through everything in life and her generosity knows no bounds. The bond of friendship continues through our daughters.
This coin belonged to a dear friend who just recently "found her wings" and passed on, so I am going to give this coin new life by passing it along to another dear friend. We recently went to the wonderful Butterfly Rainforest at the Gainesville, Florida Museum of Natural History and saw a butterfly similar to the one pictured on the coin. Wishing this sweet butterfly many happy adventures and travels - fly on, little wing!
Hello Sweet Girl!
We started our vacation a couple days ago, it's my first time at Wisconsin Dells.
Everything has been a new adventure each day, its so liberating to take away the mundane same day routine.
Among the many adventures, your cousins Anthony and Prestin have been living it up with Damario and Danny, running around as big boys do making their own memories to cherish.
Savanha has taken to the pool like a real life mermaid and making new friends wherever she goes. She is so sweet, fierce and independent.
My favorite part of our trip is all the time we are spending together, no matter what we do or where we go, its the company we keep that makes everything so special and I am thrilled to share our time with you. We know you are watching from above and that your spirit is with us.
Love you baby girl 🥰🥰🥰
Your mom & I were out on the patio the other day and 2 white butterflies came so close to me, i could have reached out and touched them. White butterflies are not common and i knew in my heart it was you, giving your mom a sign that you are there. We all miss & love you so much. There isn't a day that goes by that we aren't missing you. Keep giving us signs baby girl.
Love you infinity.
-Nick, Nicole, Anthony, Prestin & Savanha
I was given this very special coin from my kind and
thoughtful friend and neighbor, Nancy Miyares. She taught me all about her love and passion for the monarch butterflies, gave me an inspirational reference book on the Monarch (Saving Our Most-Loved Butterfly) by Kylee Baumle and inspires everyone she knows. I love the art of helping them survive. It is my honor to pass this coin on to a dear friend who is inspired by nature and gardening, Jeannie K. who is also a member of the Wildflower Garden Club. Jeannie has raised the Monarchs with love and passion, understanding the need to take care of these beauties.
I received this coin as a reminder of the love Nicole shared with so many. I miss her everyday and am always looking for ways to live more like her, to be good like her. I am honored to feel her presence through time spent with her most precious ones, Jack and Carter. There is no better reminder that her legacy of love and kindness caries on through them. When I think of Nicole's goodness, I am moved to build relationships with people who share similar qualities. Amber serves others with grace and love as a mother, teacher and friend. She is raising her own wonderful children, spreads kindness to her students and makes them feel so loved, and has helped me as I have navigated the loss of our friend. For those reasons and more, I will pass this coin on to you, Amber. Love, Lesley
I received this coin from my precious daughter-in-law’s mother in memory of my daughter-in-law on her first birthday in heaven. Nicole was simply the kindest person I have ever known. I miss her deeply and always will. I am grateful God gave me 20 years with her even though I wanted more. In honor of her, and with great love for her, I am passing this coin to Nicole’s dear friend, Lesley, who has done so much to help my son and grandsons navigate this first year without Nicole. She has put her love into action with almost daily efforts to help them. She reminds me of Nicole, and I am so deeply grateful to her for her unselfish kindness. Lesley, please know you have touched my heart by honoring Nicole so lovingly.
