Wow!!! What an amazing evening. This will definitely be a first on Butterfly Coins. This is my story. As I stated earlier I was supposed to be going with my dear friend of 19yrs Rodney shopping (or so I thought) while at his house waiting to leave, a know on the door. Rodney opens the door greets a man who quickly entered followed by a cameraman lights and cameras on. He walks to me as I stood to introduce myself, when he proceeds to tell me his name Dave Waston. Host and TV personality of the show The Journey. It’s an outdoor sporting show which highlights the selfless lives others have given. He proceeds to tell me I had been nominated and selected as one of his guests, for an all expenses paid hunting adventure in Oklahoma. I realize this evening I was the very person who “received “ a butterfly coin, so to speak. By my dear friends Rodney and Libby in nominating myself to be selected. It was then I knew that the very coin I was carrying has in a way selected ME to be the recipient of an incredible random act of kindness. I therefore ceremonially gifted my first coin to Rodney and Libby. Two very deserving wonderful people. Although they have already helped me. I know the coin they now carry will find its was onto someone else very soon. So this was In affect a reversal act of kindness. So cool 👊🏼👊🏼🇺🇸🇺🇸 Watch for me soon on the outdoor channel show The Journey for the rest of my story
Dennis planned on using this coin tonight when he was out Christmas shopping... what he didn’t know was he was getting surprised with a hunting trip instead of going shopping. He is truly a one of a kind man with a heart of gold. So instead of giving the coin to someone who he thought needed help he did the reverse and gave it to us, the ones that gave him a hunting trip. I’m excited to see the journey of this coin and who’s lives it touches!
Just received my 10 coins today. This one I’m taking with me while Christmas shopping. I pray I can have an opportunity to help someone today and pass it on. D 🙏🏼🇺🇸
Gave the coin and a twenty dollar bill to this dude who needed it outside Slicks. He promised to pay it forward in his own time and way.
This sort of thing is normally outside of my comfort zone. But with the coin in my pocket, I was actively looking for an opportunity to help someone – and damn if it didn't feel great.
While our project is in its infancy, I thought I'd post this Example Coin with some fake story notes so you can see how the animated map works. Here's my first story note.
Wow...the butterfly is emerging from its cocoon....a destiny of global giving. A big decision indeed on what to be the first path of a beautiful fledging butterfly...trusting it to find its way.
