Welcome to The Caring Coins!

The Vermont-crafted wooden Caring Coin has been a tangible reminder of caring, connection, and hope for over 150,000 people of all ages around the world. The Journey of the Caring Coin is evidence that a very simple act of caring can impact our world.

Today, each of us, our families, friends, neighbors, and others may be dealing with loss of a loved one, loss of their livelihood, and loss of connection with others because of COVID-19. We can feel alone, and hopeless…Some days the best we can do is put one foot in front of the other.

More than ever, each one of us can be part of the solution to the challenges we face due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We can take the 100-day Challenge to wear our mask, abide by social distancing, wash our hands, and get the vaccine…four simple steps that can help stop this pandemic.

And we can share our love and caring with each other with a text, a phone call, a tweet, a card, a letter, a Caring Coin reminding each other “You are not alone” and “You do matter”.

We can and will do this for our children, our families, ourselves, and each other.

“…the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love.”​
—Sister Theresa

The coronavirus is contagious but…

Caring is more Contagious!!!

Each one of us does matter!

We are all in this together!

Share a Caring Coin

These little wooden Vermont made Caring Coins with their “I Matter, You Matter” and “You are never alone” messages are simple tangible reminders that each one of us matters, a message we all need.

I have been sharing Caring Coins for many years. Because of the pandemic, I cannot share the coins personally as I have in the past but I can send them to you to share as you wish. I have a supply here that I would love to share as long as my supply lasts.

If you would like to have Caring Coins to share contact me on the contact page and send me your mailing address and let me know how you share the coins. I shall send the coins in packages of 10, 25, and 50. Please indicate if you would like the Angel Coin or the I Matter, You Matter coin.

You can also order Caring Coins yourself in quantities of 50 or more through Maple Landmark at www.maplelandmark.com or call (802) 388-0627.

About Salley Gibney

The Caring Coin began with a dream Salley Gibney had 15 years ago about a wooden coin with an angel and the message, “You are never alone.”

“Although perplexed by this dream, something inside of me knew that I had to follow this dream and bring this little coin to fruition. 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.” *

—Salley Gibney

*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.
