My humanity is bound up in yours,
for we can only be human together.

A Few Moments of You Matter Magic:

“I gave my cards out to patients at two free medical clinics in SC. No photos because of confidentiality but their smiles (a different kind of global warming!) are etched on my heart.”
-Christie from South Carolina

“I’m a teacher and I gave each child in my homeroom a You Matter card and signed it. As they came into class this morning they each had one on their desk. Many of them smiled and said Thank you. Then I went around and shared with each of them why they mattered to me. It created a great atmosphere and encouraged communication.”
-Shea

“I gave the cards out today to everyone before a staff meeting. The agenda had the potential to ruffle some feathers, and I wanted everyone to know they Mattered!! It was a big hit. Everyone smiled. One fellow employee said it felt like an endorphin rush. The staff meeting went great. Everyone’s opinions were heard and respected.”
-Donna
