Welcome to The Caring Coins!
Caring is Contagious!
Each one of us does matter!
We are all in this together!
In our unsettled world, we may wonder if we can make a difference… The answer is “Yes, we can!”
Each one of us can make a difference one person at a time. Making a difference does not have to be big or grandiose…it can be as simple as sharing our caring with simple acts of kindness like a smile, a compliment, a wave, a hi, holding a door for someone, letting a car go ahead of us. It can be text, a coin, a card, whatever…
Not only can it turn someone’s day around, it can turn our day around too. And it can give us hope for a more settled world.
“…the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love.”
The little wooden Vermont crafted Caring Coin is a reminder of a caring connection. It is a little gift of hope…
The “I Matter, You Matter, We All Matter” card shares the I Matter, You Matter message with everyone who receives one. And it is so easy to share…
About Salley Gibney
Salley Gibney has worn many hats as a wife, mother, “Grammy”, registered nurse, entrepreneur and community volunteer. She hosted a cable TV Show, Let’s Talk at GNAT-TV in Manchester, Vermont for 14 years and currently hosts “Caring Connections” at PEG-RI TV in Providence, RI.
“Throughout my life experiences, I have realized the importance of a personal, caring connection, of knowing someone cares and the hope that comes with each caring connection we make. Today, the responses I observe to simple acts of caring reenforce my believe that each one of us needs to reminded that we matter.”
“My hope in sharing the story of the Caring Coins is to inspire each of us to tap into the best of ourselves, remember each one of us matters and share a message of caring.”
“I am also hoping to encourage others to follow their dreams. I could never have come up with this little coin had it not been for my dream.” *

*Dreams are gifts meant to stretch our capabilities.
They beckon us to new heights. They lend direction to our lives. They are not happenstance; they are part of our destiny. Our dreams reflect the contribution we are called on to make in this life.
Think about that!
Do you have a dream or a passion? It may be something that comes to you fleetingly. It might be whimsical, whatever. You must follow your dream, even if it is just a little bit at a time. You owe it to yourself. Life is a process of steps. Take one step at a time…Just continue to climb.
Share a Caring Coin…
The little wooden Vermont crafted Caring Coins with their “I Matter, You Matter, We Matter” and “You are never alone” messages are simple tangible reminders that each one of us matters…a message we all need.
Over 150,000 Caring Coins were shared through the You Are Never Alone Foundation, a Vermont 501 (c)(3) non-profit, non-denominational organization in Vermont that fostered caring, connection and hope until it was dissolved when Salley’s husband became ill. Salley and many others continue to share Caring Coins today.
You may want to design your own Caring Coin or create something yourself to share as a reminder of caring, connection and hope.
