Coin Stories

My name is Cindy. I have long believed in paying it forward and feel that doing good for others was commanded by Jesus when He said to “Love one another”. If each of us did random acts of kindness this world would be a better place!

I am the first recipient of this coin. Feeling very special :)
Received for being a good listener and kind deeds to doggies. Thank you Esther!

I am a bartender and one of my favorite guests that I see semi regularly brought this for me during the holidays 😁 She is one of the coolest ladies I know and her giving this to me meant a lot.

Tomorrow I release my first butterfly coin to Kailani Taylor at the Dream Board workshop her mother is leading. I chose Kailani because she is making her dreams come true - starting a business (Kids Arts Corp.), creating art and being her best self. She inspires me to be better. I wanted her to know that she is making a difference in the world. I look forward to seeing where her journey leads and who she will choose to pass her butterfly coin to.

Received the coin in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin 2-22-2019

Received the coin in the mail at Cleveland, Wisconsin and passed it on to someone in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin.

Received from an esteemed colleague whom I’m proud to say I worked alongside in creating a database of resources to aid the abused, homeless, jobless, and otherwise in-crisis individuals of our county jail.

Thanks, partner. Looking forward to future projects.

I belong to 719 Kindness Rocks. As our fearless leader said in her original post, we promote kindness throughout the city (and beyond) by painting rocks with positive messages on them and leaving them for people to find. Several of us have set up Little Free Libraries (take a book, leave a book) and added Little Free Pantries on to them (hungry? No food in the house until next payday? Take what you need to feed your family). Hilarie started our amazing group and if ANYONE in the group is passionate about a cause that is close to their heart, all they have to do is speak up and suddenly hundreds of rocks will be left around town sharing awareness and love. We've also helped in one of our kids' classrooms and taught them about the importance of kindness, not bullying, etc. The kids got to paint rocks and take them home or hide them. It's great trying to teach the next generation to be kind with your words, your actions, and more. I've made very good friends in this group that I never would have met otherwise. Hilarie is the glue that holds us all together. I'm convinced that if not for her, our group would fall apart, or at least not be the group it is today. Thank you, Hilarie, for passing your coin to me. I'll cherish it and will keep it close so that I can hand it to another very special person that is making a difference in our world. <3

This going was given to me by my mentor as a token of kindness.

This coin was sent to me from my step mom. I had asked her to purchase me some material for a quilt im making. I asked her what i owed her. She replied Pay It Forward. I recieved my package on 2/22/2019.

I got this coin from my friend, I wish it will going to more places , make more good stories...

My first coin is going to an old friend who spent a short time working for me while he undertook his undergraduate divinity studies in a different state. Now a full-fledged pastor, he works tirelessly to advocate for those whose voices are suppressed – and I mean he works *tirelessly*. I don't have many spiritual beliefs, but one of the things I most respect about this coin's next owner is that his interpretation of "God" is so far beyond what is traditionally presented to us. He promulgates a progressive, selfless love and respect for humans, animals, and Earth that surely represents what religion was created for: living with kindness, generosity, and integrity. I hope this coin passes through his hands and takes along with it some of those qualities.

My wife and I bought this coin in hopes of showing our 6 year old daughter how a small act of kindness can inspire further acts of kindness from others... and continue on and on. We'll see if this works!

Thank you!!

This is Ryan's coin. He was the son of a friend of mine. He passed away and yesterday was his birthday. I sent her the coin so she can pass it forward and follow the story of her son's coin.

I am giving the "flamazing" hands to Brenda Van de Steeg our Library Assistant. I'm always hearing about your story time in the Library. Keep up the good times in there.

February 28, 2018 My friend Jennifer passed away suddenly. She had struggled with her own personal demons for many years but that is not how I remember her. I remember her bright smile, her love of nature, and her willingness to sit and listen to my stories. Many laughs and tears were shared between us. Spring was her favorite time of year and signs of spring and rebirth are all around us. Fly high, my friend.

mara sandbergs coin

This coin is going to travel in memory of my father and in honor of my mother who taught me at very young age that it is truly more blessed to give then to receive.
I can not wait to find just the perfect person to hand this coin to. Where ever it travels to, know that I prayed for you and I pray that you are blessed beyond measure.
One day I hope to see that this coin has even made its way to Alaska, that was the one place my dad always wanted to return to visit as he was stationed there during WWI
Travel butterfly coin travel and touch many lives

This coin is going to travel to a young lady named Britney. Little did she know the day that she gave my grand daughter a hug in the middle of Bath and Body that she was giving life back to a young lady that had felt like she was going no where. She started a conversation with her and told her how beautiful she was and my grand daughter was so touched that someone cared and that someone actually told her she was beautiful (which she is but she didn't feel like she was)
Britney has continued to touch her and be a support for her while she is going though some of lifes trials. What a beautiful loving kind person she is. Cherie would absolutely love knowing her, she was the same bubbly person who you never saw without a smile. Thank you Brit for all that you have done and meant to Nita. Praying you are always blessed beyond measure.

This coin was purchased in memory of my best childhood friend. Cherie.
When she passed away I asked God to send me reminders of her to let me know that she was still with me in my heart. I asked him to send me Monarch butterflies. That very same day one landed on my car for what seemed an eternity.
I saw the advertisement for this coin and thought what a wonderful way to share my friendship with Cherie that lasted for 57 years. She was a kind person that would do anything for anyone, I would love to see this coin travel all over the world, as that was her dream to do one day. May each and everyone that receives this coin be blessed beyond measure and know that you are loved.
