My name is April Chang and I received this coin in honor of my 3-year-old son, Mitchell Chang, who drowned at his swim school, Love to Swim School. We started The Mitchell Chang Foundation to continue his good story through building an inclusive playground for San Antonio and incuraging kind acts to others, no matter the size. One good deed, no matter how large, is just that, one good deed but by encouraging many small acts of kindness they multiply together for a huge impact. We can overwhelm the world with our kind acts!

I have held on to this coin for over a year because I didn't want to let it go. Someone gave it to us because they thought of Mitchell and that has made this coin so very special. Even though I want to keep it, I know it will continue my babies story much better by going out in the world spreading goodness. So today I will release it. A local teen has worked very hard to raise money for nonprofits during the pandemic and I feel that this butterfly going should now go to her.
