About the You Matter Marathon
The You Matter Marathon (YMM) is creating and enriching positive connections between people and within communities.
Over 100,000 people from all 50 states and 77 countries have shared over a million cards. This year we’re determined to reach 2 million!
The results are astounding. 61% of participants report that they achieve a greater sense of gratitude and enhanced connection with others. 51% report enhanced compassion for others; and 50% achieve enhanced levels of personal happiness. The lesson? One small gesture and two small words can help forge connections and spread kindness, compassion, and happiness.
How the You Matter Marathon Works
Individuals or organizations sign up to receive 30 You Matter cards in the mail, free of charge. Participants are invited to join a private Facebook group to connect with other You Matter Marathoners. Participants receive weekly emails sharing our progress and inspiring stories.
