Coin Stories

On the last day of 2018 I gave this coin and four others to my wonderful husband, the kindest person I have ever known. I look forward to reading about its journey!

This coin is going to my youngest daughter who like the butterfly on the face of this coin has emerged into adult life ready to fly. May this coin go with you and remind you that kindness no matter how small makes a lasting impression.

Giving this coin to my older daughter Julie who is visiting from Ferndale Washington. May good luck travel with you and your wonderful family where ever you go.

I received my beautiful coin from my special friend Cindy. Her young daughter was killed in a car accident last year. At her funeral Cindy got over 150 letters saying how kind her daughter Rachel was. A club called Rachel’s kindness matters movement was started and organized by Cindy and her husband Steve. It is in many schools in North Carolina including high schools and middle schools and elementary schools. Teaching children how important it is to be kind to each other. I had the pleasure of paying my coin forward today to A beautiful young girl named Abby.A young boy was paying for something in line and he didn’t have enough money and she was so quick to give it to him. Without hesitation. I asked her to stay around while I went to my car to get my coin. I knew she was kind and special and deserved it. And I know she will pass it along. Thank you Abby for being so kind. 💕 Michelle

We received this coin in the mail today! The last day of 2018. This coin will be traveling across the street to a very special friend of ours. She is always willing to help others in every way she can. Her acts of kindness do not go unnoticed. We hope she will keep this coin and show it to others and they too will follow in her footsteps! Have a great 2019.

It just arrived in the mail on New Years Eve 2018. It's here in St. Louis Missouri, and what better way to start a new year! I must say, it's going to be hard to let it go. It's a beautiful coin and I collect coins! Hoping it makes the world a kinder place.

I will be going through the toll bridge at Plattemouth Nebraska and paying for person behind me and trusting toll bridge operator to pass this butterfly coin onto person behind me! Have a great day to person behind me and have fun releasing it under your own random act of kindness.

This coin started in Hamburg Iowa and was ordered from Awesome Possum Flea Market, owners Kevin and Kim Johnson. ( I'm Kim) We headed up the Hamburg Act of Kindness Project with local residents ordering a total of 105 coins.

My partner gifted me this coin as a holiday gift! I've been meditating with it and setting loving intentions before sending it out into the world. I'm so looking forward to seeing its journey unfold.

This was given to us by my mom to start this journey of paying it forward with kindness!

I received this coin from my boss and good friend, Bruce while we were working together. And am passing the coin on to Haley who I met in South Africa. Haley was a peace corps volunteer in the same village that I was working in and we ended up working in the same nonprofit together. Haley has an unmatched persistence and work ethic. She is determined and very, very thoughtful. The work she did for the organization advanced it by miles and could not have been achieved in that amount of time without her. I thought that she deserved the coin more than anyone else I know because she does so much good for this world, and does so lovingly and in good spirit. Thank you Haley, I know you’ll send this butterfly somewhere very meaningful :) (ps Happy Engagement!! Woo-hoo)

I received my shipment of coins today and I knew who would be the first recipient. In June of this year my elderly neighbor passed away. He had a cat named Lulu and after his passing we took Lulu in as our own. Well on December 29, 2018 Lulu was hit by a car and not thinking clearly I grabbed her and rushed her to our local vets, Randolph Animal Hospital were she taken right away for evaluation. My son and I were escorted into an exam room to wait to hear her prognosis. Dr Pia Torres came in and introduced herself and proceeded to list Lulu's problems potential problems, what could be done etc. in the meantime my husband and daughter came to help make the heart breaking decision to have her put to sleep. She knew this was a hard decision for all of us and made us feel we were doing the right thing. We came in with no appointment to a very full waiting room never feeling like we were being rushed or taking up To much of her time plus a exam room for over an hour.
She truly cared about not just her patient but her patients adoptive parents and family.
For that we will forever be grateful for all of your kindness.
So I pass this first butterfly coin to you Dr Pia Torres for all that you have done for my family. Thank You.

First coin of mine for committing a random act of kindness with somewhere in Florida...
I am with my sweet niece at Starbucks. We're going to give someone an extra gift card I had with the coin!

This coin was just given to me by my supervisor Joe M.
As my family and I celebrate and bring in the new year, I look forward to seeing this coins journey. I'll keep it in my pocket until the moment I pay it forward in kindness. :-)
Happy New Years Eve, goodbye 2018
