The Goal Of the You Matter Marathon
We’re living in a world where people crave connection, yet feel more isolated than ever. Every one of us is here for a reason. We are all essential. We need, and are needed by, each other.
The original goal of the You Matter Marathon was to create and enrich positive connections between people and within communities by sharing 10,000 You Matter cards during November.
We are thrilled to have far exceeded our goal by sharing 431,460 You Matter cards!
How the You Matter Marathon Came About
A colleague gave me a card saying You Matter on it. I was so touched that I immediately ordered a box of my own cards and began giving them out to family, friends and even strangers.
The impact has been magical.
Help us make even more magic.
