Pay it Forward Geocoin Adoptions

Recommended Posts

Because a similar thread was very popular for a few days, I thought I would begin another one. The intent of this thread is to continue through the holidays but it can continue as long as it survives.

 

The premise is that those who have extra activated geocoins that may be doubles, coins that are no longer wanted, coins that will not sell or released coins someone does not want to keep track of, etc... For whatever reason, adopt them to someone who wants to see their own coin travel.

 

All you have to do is adopt the coin to someone in this thread who wants one and release it yourself. If this thread survives individuals can always participate and maybe companies that have extra coins with a certain prefix can also join.

 

To start this out I will donate the first twenty coins then maybe someone can donate a few more.

I would love to have a traveling coin ... I only own a few, and none that I want to part with (yet!)

Thanks, Tennessee Jed, for the adoption of the wigoweb coin. I hope it travels well, maybe I'll get to see it some day.

 

For those who may wish to follow this coin, it is ref. no. TB1N1EZ.

 

I'll give it a goal later, and maybe add a picture.

I would love to adopt a coin and give it its own mission and have it travel around and around!!! Please let me know if I am able to adopt one. Thanks. I appreciate it.

Yes! Why not??? I would love that too! I do not know if I am qualified! :)

 

I like seeing coins travel! My coins or the coins that belong to others but passed from my hands and helped them travel a little!

 

Since my wallet limits are low, (this year too low :laughing: ), If I am allowed, I would love to adopt some coins! :)

Adoption of one of your coins is requested.

 

I will check my stash of coins - if I can find or have the activation codes of some older state coins I will have some coins up for adoption after Tennessee Jed's coins are gone.

I would love to adopt a coin or 2 and I know I have a few I could adopt out and release. I will get a list of coins up for adoption listed here before the weekend is out. If you see a coin on the list you want to see travel and would like it adopted to you, let me know.

I would love to adopt one too if any are left. My travelers haven't done to well. They keep disappearing. Maybe I will have better luck with one of yours. Thanks for the offer!

My daughter won (grand prize) a custom painted ammo can and a Tennessee Jed geocoin at a geoevent at Bay's Mtn. near Kingsport, Tn. Thank you Tennessee Jed for the donation and the adoption. You made a great impression on me, now I donate unactivated geocoins at geoevents that we attend, all because of the kindness that you showed me toward your fellow geocachers.

 

Pay it forward.

I have a few that I gift out, but they are for the Todie's Wild Ride releases. If anyone wants to join in, please see that thread.

 

I very much appreciate TJ's continued generosity, well done, my friend!!

 

OK, I might find a couple to adopt here too, will watch and see how this goes!

This is the end of my coins. If anyone wants to keep this thread going all you have to do is select one person and release and adopt one coin in their name.Many people from around the world have asked to adopt a coin. I know others would like to see their adopted coin travel in your area, wherever that is. That is what :Paying it Forward" is all about. Just give one or two coins to someone who asks. If everyone of you who adopted one of my coins would adopt one of their coins to someone else, all of us will Pay it Forward

 

Here is my final list.

Thank you, Tennessee Jed, for adopting out TheHobos coin to me! I will give the coin a mission later today. The mission will likely be to come to Texas so that I can meet the coin, and then I'll change it and send it back out if it makes it.

 

I don't want to step on the toes of 2golfers, who is in the middle of building his list, but I would like to pay it forward. I have only one coin to release at the moment, but I would like to also mail a matching pin to the person who adopts it, since the coin will be released here in Texas. If you are interested, please let me know.

Ok, here is the list I am willing to adopt out. Pick one and I will send the adoption. As they are picked, I will take em off the list.

Indiana Micro

MWGB T-Shirt

Top 40: 510 Gang

MWGB Parrot: Team Black Cat

Tenn. Micro

 

AS Soon as adoption is completed I will place them in the cache in front of my house. Let me know if there is something special you want done. Like a info card printed for the coin, or a hole drilled and a tag attached. I can do just about anything.

Can I ask something? If we already adopted a coin or two, can we still participate and adopt other coins too? Of course if there are no other who want one and heven't adopt one yet! :signalviolin:

Some people may say 'let's trade adoptable coins' so they can watch a coin travel in different countries. Although that may be a good idea, please start a different thread. This thread is for giving without expectations or receiving without expectations. You can do which ever you desire and hopefully everyone will be able to pay it forward someday

This coin is now spoken for, and the pin is awaiting a UPS driver to pick it up from my office in about 20 minutes. UPS to ship a pin? .... :signalviolin:

Thank you manville p h for the adoption of a pretty coin!!!! You are so generous! :signalviolin:

 

Can I ask something?? what coins can be adopted? I mean... can I give for adoption a coin that is participating in a race, or it is with a special mission to someone so he can participate too? Is it ok if the coin has miles already and it is out travelling?

The only problem with that is that a part of a title has to stay untouched and part of the mission....
