Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by
an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks
to those who have rekindled this inner light.
Dr. Albert Schweitzer

A Few Moments of You Matter Magic:
“As my students and I prepared breakfast at a shelter for displaced children, women, and men, I put out You Matter cards at every place setting. When one young lady came to get her breakfast, she just said a simple, “thank you, I needed that.” Sometimes that’s all it takes…the feeling that one gets that she belongs; she is cared for; she matters. This reinforces in me how important it is for each of us to be seen; to not be forgotten about.”
-Bradley Stoll

“We just returned from a trip to Iceland and we spread You Matter love all around, leaving one in the airport, hotel, on a bulletin board near a waterfall, and at the Blue Lagoon! I love this idea! Thank you for allowing me and my family to be a part of this! Always happy to spread joy and boost someone’s confidence, self-acceptance, and happiness! And, I’ll admit, I’ve kept one for myself which sits on my dresser, as a daily reminder to myself, which it seems everyone could use!”
-Michelle Gershon

“I received a “You Matter” card from my co-worker Dana Wise and I was sooo touched. I was moved to tears, cause it was JUST what the Dr. had ordered, I held them back when I went by to thank her. I am ecstatic that this is a “THING”!!!! I will share my 30 cards!!! Thank You!!!!”
-Annette Fletcher

“Last month I had passed out YOU MATTER cards to all (18) at a NAMI Manchester Family Support Meeting. Last night one woman told us that one day she got terribly depressed and when she saw the card she perked right up. They are life savers so keep on giving them out.”
-Karen Fedorchak
