2017 YMM Survey Results

You Matter Matters!

That’s just one of the many affirmations you shared in our 2017 You Matter Marathon Survey. Here are a few others:

  • This was the happiest I’ve been all year.
  • My sense of empowerment empowered someone else.
  • To see someone “light up” because I gave them a “YOU MATTER” card, is absolutely priceless.
  • I recently moved to a new state and the YMM allowed me to get out of my comfort zone and connect with others.
  • My son was so excited to participate that he asked to take cards to this kindergarten classmates and teachers.
  • It is an amazing experience. I was hugged, blessed, smiled at, cried to, appreciated! My heart swelled each time I handed out a card.

Thanks to each and every one of you for taking action to make the world a more human, more kind, more compassionate and more hospitable place for all of us.

You Matter.
