I got a Tikkun Token by a stranger. She was very sweet and encouraged me to keep being kind and helping the community. It really touched me. I came online and read more about what these tokens are and it really touched my heart. I want to pass it on and acknowledge wonderful strangers that have a kind heart. I hope to pass on hope, appreciation and love. Thank you for what you do! Thank you for encouraging people to be the best they can be ♥️
I am not sure why I received a token, but a coworker of mine left one in my office mailbox. At the time, I was working in a female prison, as the primary caseworker on our special needs unit, which is for individuals not currently able to manage being in general population, typically due to symptoms associated with a chronic mental illness. Now while I can't say for sure why I received it, maybe they recognized how much I put into my work and also how stressful and taxing it can be at times. Finding the Tikkun Token in my mailbox defiantly lifted my spirits that day and any time I pull it out of my desk, because it reminds me of why I'm in social worker. It also made me feel good that, hopefully, I am making a difference in the lives of others, if a bystander recognized the effort and sincerity I put into work every day.
I put in an order for some tokens and look forward to carrying them with me and passing them out to others.
Thank you for starting this project, it is defiantly making an impact and difference!

I delivered care packs to the Brookside Homeless Shelter.
I literally just got to school 10 minutes ago and this lady went up to me asking where the school library was. Since I wasn't really doing anything and still had time before class started, I decided to walk her there. When we got there, I was startled that she gave me this token out of nowhere since I never knew about this until today.
To me, it just seems to be a small act of kindness, but i guess small things could lead to something greater.
was at the recent Women's March in Oakland, sitting on my walker with my little home made pink signs taped to my front. They said "Not your pussy. Not your planet." And I had drawn a nice blue and green earth. No grabby greed for this old lady. A young woman came over to me and gave me a token that said I had just made the world a better place. It made me cry. I hope it's actually true.
Upon attending the Womens March on January 20, 2018, my sister and I were holding our signs when a women handed us each a tikkun token. I was confused as to what they were until I looked them up and here we are.
Received: Oakland, CA
Received at the womans march 2018 in Oakland California. LOVE
Last Saturday , Jan. 06/2018, I and a group of people (6-7 ) were in a corner in Oakland CA with placards against wars and against the oppression of Palestinian people by the government of Israel. A young woman got out of a car and gave each one of us a Tikkun Token. We were surprised and grateful to her and also to your organization.
Today I was stopped at a crosswalk and a very elderly woman with a walker was standing at the light. When the light turned green, she hesitated and turned to the man standing next to her and said something to him. He walked with her very slowly across the street. After we all crossed the street, I watched him take off in a different direction from the woman. Apparently they didn't know each other and he had taken the time to help her cross the street. I chased him down and handed him a token and thanked him for helping her cross the street. He looked very puzzled, then read the token and smiled.
