My Aunt Marry Kay recently passed and I found this coin when I was cleaning my room shortly after we came back home from her funeral in Butte. I am not sure if I should give this coin to someone if they do a kind deed or if I do a kind deed for them and pass it on, but I know I an going to give it to someone soon. In this time with COVID-19 there is plenty of kindness around.

Given to Jen Hart who supported her team and clinic during a pandemic while wearing multiple hats with added responsibilities. Jen advocated for adequate PPE for patient and staff safety, revised workflows unique to primary care, and helped to create an innovative nursing role within the clinic. This new role will provide needed support to front end operations, support the mission of the clinic, and provide better care to the population they serve. Jen is a dedicated leader who seeks out opportunities for improvement and the staff and patients are lucky to have Jen in this role. Thank you Jen!

The light of one the worlds most beautiful souls went out on us this year, but that won’t stop all the wonderful things she stood for from carrying that light forward. This coin spreads love and support, the same as the light we lost. 💕

Helped shop for food for my neighbor during much of the corona pandemic. She is medically compromised and had many fears of leaving her home.

Thank you so much for this coin. I will try to come up with a good plan for passing it on.

This will be going to my Bookcrossing Europe and UK Secret Santa who is ???? and lives in ?????

Wonderful to give and then to receive. I look forward to passing on the good 😌

Marlene and her store have made our little community so much better. Her kindness and support of local causes has made a huge difference. On a personal note when me and my Hubby were in COVID lockdown she delivered groceries and food to us right to our door when we weren't allowed to leave the house. Thank you for being awesome.

We are giving this to a special young lady that has an amazing life journey ahead of her. She is hardworking committed and undaunted! She has over the last few years given many hours of her time to my son in her role as a volunteer buddy. She accepted and dealt with his extra needs without judgment or drama and provided him with so many opportunities to safely explore. She has become a family friend even as she now moves on to her next role, teaching. Emily this is not a goodbye, this an acknowledgement and a thank you for being such a special person. I don't think this butterfly will stay with you long, being the kind person you are I am sure there will be many opportunities for it to be passed along. I hope you enjoy following its journey and see it as a reminder that you are making a difference in the world........
Happy Christmas 2019

Thank you Aaron for setting a wonderful example of peace and friendship for me and Bev and the entire Windy Gap family.

I received this as part of an incredible Bookcrossing HGG 2020 package. I will be looking for a great opportunity to pay the kindness forward. Thank you so much Shemchin!

This is such a sweet idea. I've seen it advertised in the BookCrossing sidebar but have never clicked through to read what it's all about. I will be sure to pass it along as I know exactly who I want to send it to---a butterfly lover and one of the kindest people I know! I've been saving a book for her for almost a year so I'll be putting together a little package soon!

I received this coin from a fellow post/bookcrosser in the mail today along with a subway gift card and some stamps! How great is this! I plan to send it on soon. Thank you!

I received this beautiful coin in the mail from a generous bookcrosser along with a lot of other wonderful surprises as part of Holiday Gift Giving. I have had a very rough year, and this coin and the other gifts gave me such joy! I am eager to think of a good way to spread the kindness and pass this on. Thank you!

I'm sending this coin out to another bookcrosser along with some stamps for her postcrossing hobby and a Subway gift card.

Brad, GrowMilkweedPlants.com, is selfless, and spends tremendous time, resources, and energy to help Monarchs. In so doing, Brad helps all pollinators. He has taught me so much, and I couldn’t do my work without him.

I received this coin in Gardiner MT. I was running a B and B and a guest gave this to me. We sold the B and B in 2020 and dropped this coin off in a geocache in Holland MI

I received this coin in a surprise "Holiday Gift Giving" package. It's my first butterfly coin and I'll look for a good place to leave it.

I received this coin from a very generous bookcrosser in a HGG pkg. Will be thinking about what I can do.

I sent this coin out as part of the bookcrossing 2020 HGG packages that I am sending this year to spread the kindness around. I am hoping that the ones that receive them will do their own random acts of kindness and pass on the coins.

I received the coin from Shemchin in my Holiday Gift Giving Package. I was stunned. I have read about the coins, but never expected to receive one. I will be looking forward to passing it on. Thank you!!!

I am working at my Silver Shop on Cannery Row right now and a sweet customer came in and wanted to swap out a ring she bought yesterday, so I let her exchange it, and she was extremely happy which made me very happy as well...before she left she gave me this coin, and told me about it.... Now that I know what this coin is about I'm excited to spread the love now

WOW! What an amazing bookcrossing HGG (holiday gift giving) package! Included in the package was a Texas Christmas card with 4 wheresgeorge dollars tucked inside, some bookmarks, 4 Christmas Cookbooks, Many Bookcrossing supplies including a notepad, keychain, pin, patches, temporary tatoo and lots of bookcrossing labels (many new to me), There is also a bunch of postcards that I will definitely use as well as this beautiful butterfly coin. I look forward to doing a random act of kindness and passing the coin to someone else. Thanks so much Shemchin!

I've sat with this coin for some time. My first thoughts were who was farthest I could send it to but then I shifted to I wanted it to go to a person dear to me and on a special occasion. This thinking on who to get the coin next led me to thinking of my dear friend and mentor Martha Reeder. She has taught me so much about leading, listening, finding my strengths, and life. While life may have us meet many different people Martha is a forever for me. While she may not be biologically family she is in my mind and heart. So many times she has helped with a listening ear, sharing music, quotes, or love. She has touched and lifted my dreams in indescribable ways. She has encouraged my children, husband and I as well. To know Martha and have her in your life is truly special. What is the best is her heart and passion for others because she truly cares and keeps you focused on what is most important in life, your relationships. Thank you isn't enough for all the ways Martha has shown up or been there. So I am hoping the journey of the butterflies on this coin can spread the love all over the world because then it would be a small symbol of all the love, care and compassion she has shown.

My friend gave me this coin for my journey to Michigan.
I'm gonna pass it on and see where it goes!
HAPPY TRAVELS!!

I am a rider for the Christian Motorcycle Association.I met a young lady named April and her dad at a gas station in Festus Mo. on our way to a charity ride for children with cancer.(CARLEI HUFF FOUNDATION)Everyone was on their bikes.I asked if they wanted to ride with us to this event.They were on their way to a charity event themselves.
I mentioned to them where and when we were gonna ride the next day.They showed up!!!!!!I know everything happens for a reason.We did several rides together as a group for different reasons.
Eventually April told me of the loss of her daughter “EMMA”. We have all become family over time.She is a hero in my eyes,doing so much work to help the community.She is an absolute angel.
She had a celebration of life for her daughter on her birthday yesterday.10/25/2020. She honored me and my family by allowing us to be part of this celebration.It was so beautiful!! I got to see April smile in content with the friends and families that showed up to show love for Emma.
We laughed,we told stories and prayed together.I had a coin I had been carrying for a while.It was a beautiful brass coin that talked about the full armor of God.I felt compelled to give this coin to April.She absolutely loved the coin and in return gave me an extremely beautiful butterfly coin that she had in memory of Emma.
I can’t even begin to tell you how emotional I am over this blessing she awarded me!!! So I absolutely had to come to this site and tell of this butterflies travel into my heart.I don’t know how I could set this butterfly free again but one day the opportunity will present itself and it will fly again.Until then I will pray for those who have lost a piece of their heart by the loss of a loved one.Bless you April and all of your family.Lets continue to do work together and make a difference in our community.We will change this world,even if it’s just one heart at a time!!!!!!😇

I got this beautiful butterfly coin from my dad and boys for Christmas and I absolutely love it. 🦋

This coin is going to someone special who gives of his time remembering fallen heroes as he walks for the Wilderness Walk for Warriors. Thank you Chris for all you do!!

Arrived in Chuluota. Very excited to start the journey and pass it on!
