Introducing FUMC Compassion Coins:
Remember the last time someone did something unexpectedly kind for you? Maybe they let you ahead of them in the grocery store line? Or out of the blue, gave you a sincere compliment? Or offered to help with directions when you appeared a bit lost?
Well, now’s your chance to give back. And here’s how it works.
Take your Compassion Coin and put it in your wallet/purse. Next time you see someone who could use a little kindness, help them out. Then hand them the coin and ask them to do the same for someone else someday.
It’s just that easy.
And it’s your chance to reach out and do some simple good for the world…and your fellow inhabitants thereof. As you will see on the back of the coin, each coin has an email address (email@example.com) where people can send their stories to track their own encounters with “your” coin. Just to keep you updated, you’ll hear about some of these stories from time to time. But it won’t work if you don’t get it started.
Go ahead! Start spreading some kindness today. And put your heart into it!
