Recently, my friend Xeni completed her cancer treatment. I gave her a medal for that hard work.
Many people asked how they could do the same thing. To be honest, it was super simple.
I went to Crown Awards, a site for all kinds of trophies and medals. I was amazed at the wide range of options.
You simply choose what ever medal you feel appropriate, click away and you enter what ever inscription you want. You can even choose whatever ribbon you want. Very straight forward. The cost was under $20. Takes less than 5 minutes.
When it arrives, the inscription plate is separate and you apply it to the medal. The medal comes with a small case. For Xeni, I wrapped the box and gave it to my friends Sean and Tara, who see her regularly.
If you know someone that deserves a medal, there's no reason not to give them one. Giving respect and happiness to people is one of the best things you can do.
