Founders Coin Recipients

The “Founders Coin” was created to recognize individuals who have provided exceptional service to Operation BBQ Relief. The coin is given by the Founders Stan Hays and Will Cleaver.

Caught Doing Good Stories

The “Caught Doing Good” coin is given to an individual, whether or not it is Operation BBQ Relief related, when that individual is caught doing something good for someone else.  You are given 2 coins – one to keep, and one to give out.  When you catch someone exemplifying “Caught Doing Good,” you give them one coin and get a picture of them and let them know their act is appreciated.  You then send us an email and we will post your story and picture and send you another coin.

Keep it up!!
