Coin Stories

Following wife's coin as well as a great-niece, great-nephew, and 2 grandsons.

Received this from a friend, sooo pretty!

So Hank's and Peggy's act of kindness. Was also not random:) they hosted me and my friend. Feeding us:) and showing tons of hospitality. Thank you Hank and Peggy!! πŸ‘πŸ‘

I received this coin and was caught off guard with it. I think this is really cool. I am grateful to have been chosen as a recipient of this coin. I feel that this is a great way to let people know that they are appreciated for what they do. What a great way to pass/pay it forward. I will pass the coin on to a person that goes above and beyond on a daily basis. This person is a pleasure to work with and truly cares about everyone and is someone you want in your corner. I will pass this coin on to Deann.

So the act of kindness that was done for me was very intentional, not random. My daughter Charis traveled all the way from Sandpoint, ID to my home in Virginia. It was one of the most lovely kindnesses that I could receive for my birthday.

Today is January 7, 2019. It is my birthday. I have received this coin from my dear daughter. It’s been a beautiful day with a hike and with lots of love and laughter. I am so thankful and so blessed by our gracious Lord.

Received my coins in the mail today! Can't wait to get started on spreading kindness!

I chose to give my coin to the young man who was working at Taco John's on January 7th of 2019 named Bryant. It was over the lunch crowd and crazy busy inside. He never once lost his composure, was very efficient, polite and easy going. All very good qualities to have inside and outside the workforce. Taco John should feel very thankful that they have an employee that is this conscientious of his job when serving the public. Awesome job and thank you for such great service Bryant! You made a difference in how the rest of my day played out!

This coin originated from the Awesome Possum Flea Market in Hamburg, Iowa. This is part of a project of 105 coins that are taking place in the Hamburg Iowa butterfly effect of kindness project. Please make sure that if you are given one of these awesome coins for whatever reason that you continue passing it on so that we can see how far this coins journey can go. While I know it is tempting to hang on to these cool coins, the whole point to our project is to see how far and how big of a difference these could make in somebody's lives.

Sterling Heights, Mi...
We received the coin from neighbor with flowers that had a butterfly on it too. :-) Thanks! We will be sending it on soon. Lets see if we can get the coin across the state.

Sending from Minnesota to California with love to my Uncle & Aunt! ❀

I am giving this to my dear friend Jan, who has shown me such generosity and kindness in the short time that we have known each other. She loves butterflies, and I hope this small token makes her smile!

I purchased this coin along with 2 others on 01/01/2019. I received them on 01/04/2019. This coin will be the first one that I carry around to release out in the world.

Hi, I had this coin passed Down by my grandma. Now it’s my turn to pass it down to someone I know. I will think hard about passing it down to the next person.

I received this coin as a gift from a friend/client in Sandpoint after a visit where we shared stories of our personal/spiritual journeys and growth, and the joy we are feeling in our lives right now. Thank you, Sheila!

I released this coin to a friend who stopped to visit and deliver an unexpected Christmas gift, and to introduce me to his wonderful new girlfriend. They were on a journey from Seattle to the East Coast, and their car developed problems, and since it was New Year's Day they couldn't find a mechanic to fix it. I helped them until they were able to get repairs the next day and resume their journey. We had a wonderful visit! I wish them much love on their first big adventure together!

My name is Teresa. I currently live in Panama City Beach, Florida. I was searching for a gift for people that have everything they need or want and came across butterfly coins. I thought was a great idea and to spread kindness and watch the effect is an amazing thing these days.

I purchased 20 coins to give away. It will be interesting to see how far these butterflies travel and what kindness they might bring about.

To everyone that updates this coin, thank you for your kindness and thanks for passing it along.

Butterfly, butterfly, fly away and spread kindness along the way.

This coin is ready to fly. Please pass this coin on to spread love and kindness and document its journey along the way.

I give this to one of my ride or die people in my life. Derrick has always been a leader in everything he does.He always thinks of others first and goes above and beyond. He is there for anyone who needs to share and offers his wisdom and support for anyone who asks. This is my hand of kindness to you along with a smile. Because everyday you engage with people to make them smile. Here is to you!!

I saw these online, ordered and received them today. They are beautiful. Will be giving one to my beautiful friend Peaches for her birthday. She is a very special person and has had a very tough year. She deserves only the best and always shows kindness to everyone.

Hi I am the young Lady to witch he refers. What He said was a 100% true. They are absolutely an amazing couple. We need to mention that not only did he go and get us enough gas to make it to the gas station but when they return they refused to be reimbursed for the gas or the gas can. My mother and I tried very hard to make them take the cash but they refused. In stead they gave me this wonderful beautiful coin and explained what we needed to do. What they did not know is that my family an I have had a rough go of it this year. I was truly losing faith in the holidays (not to be Cindy Lou Who about it). It was extremely hard to recall the Christmas spirt and feel the magic that I once felt at this time of year. When this wonderful husband a wife stopped for my mother and I when they didn't have to completely warmed my heart. They truly were our Mr& Mrs. Claws this year. This was the best gift I received, the gift will never leave my heart. Thank you so much for reminding me what Christmas is all about.. I can not wait to pass the kindness on.

Hi my name is Jack Mikesell I am 9 years old and a fourth grader at Todd Academy in Corona California. My class does service learning projects every month so I decided to get a butterfly coin to start random acts of kindness and see where the coin travels to and how far it can go. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me!

I received this beautiful coin from my neighbor Gary Milligan . He and his wife Terri are two of the kindest and caring people I know. Gary gives me a lot credit for helping others but he has a big heart and is just as giving . Gary wanted to give me something special and that he did. I love this coin. It isnt everyday you get such a gift of beauty from a neighbor. Ofcourse Gary and his family are far from just being neighbors. They have become very special friends and we love their children as if they were our own grandchildren. So to you Gary. Thank you for this coin. I will cherish it and never forget the man who was so thoughtful as to pass this beautiful gift to me. Thank you Gary Milligan. I love it.

The coin just arrived here with me in Frederick..We'll soon see where it lands...
