Before we give Thanks at the end of November, before we wish our neighbors happy holidays, and before we celebrate the end of another year – while welcoming in a new one – we simply celebrate the small acts of kindness that bind us together.Introduced in 1998, World Kindness Day is internationally observed to highlight the good deeds and inherent power kindness plays in the human condition. Regardless of race, religion, politics, or gender, just small, simple acts of kindness can play an immense part in bringing each other together and unifying us under an umbrella of appreciation and positivity.
Acts of kindness do not have to be grand gestures or bold statements, but, simply, subtle reminders that there is love out there, even in moments that appear the darkest. Osborne Coinage and its customers believe that kindness is something that can be carried in your pocket, stationed on your desk, or a final contribution to an overall collection.
Kindness is not an amount, but the symbolism of what it means to another individual. Kindness is the copper coins featuring aliens you give your child because they cannot stop looking up at the stars at night. Kindness is that lucky replica coin, you have carried for years, which you flip to someone else to have because they may need that luck more than you now.
Kindness is also respect and appreciation. It is a coin you give someone to show how strong they are to have survived the worst global pandemic since the 1920s. That small reminder of a coin helps someone realize that they were able to get through, possibly, the sickest they have been: An empowering statement to say they can do anything.
Reminders of your own kindness are just as important. Some charities give out small coins to thank you for donating to help people really in need. As inflation gets worse, people may be talking themselves out of donating again, but it is the collection of coins from those charities that remind them the positive impact of what they do and the urge to continue to help.
We could give example after example, but the truth really comes down to this: Coins are kindness. They are the loose pennies and dimes you throw in the coffee shop’s tip jar. They are the minted art you help someone collect because of their beauty. They are the rounds that celebrate the season’s holidays. They are the coins that commemorate your most special life events.
We are not just minting coins, we are minting the designs that bring you, remind you, and help you celebrate those moments of true happiness.
Happy World Kindness Day from everyone at Osborne Coinage.
