“In times of crisis, helping others is the best way to find meaning and mattering.”
Professor Isaac Prilleltensky
You matter – and you make the You Matter Marathon the success that it is every year. Thank you!Six months after the 2019 Marathon we’re still receiving notes from YuMMies about the impact of the Marathon on their lives and the lives they touched. Like the woman who wrote, “The smile I received, from a young homeless girl, when she read her card is priceless.” Wow!
Now, in the midst of this global pandemic, it has never been more important to personally tell somebody that they matter.
I invite you to help me grow the impact of the You Matter Marathon by making a gift this year.
Since 2016, over 100,000 people in 50 states and 78 countries have shared the You Matter magic by passing out well over one million cards. And we’re just warming up!
We want 25 million people to receive a You Matter card by 2025. And we want to keep the cards free for first-time participants. Your gift of any size helps us provide free cards for new YuMMies to distribute.
As many of you know, I personally invested over $40,000 in YMM in these past 4 years because I believe in the magic of telling someone “You Matter.” This year it will take $25,000 to run the Marathon putting You Matter cards in the hands of over 1 million people.
If you felt that magic in your life and you want others to have that life affirming experience of giving and receiving You Matter cards, please make a gift to enable us to keep the cards free for first time participants and to continue spreading the You Matter message.
Please click here to make a tax deductible donation. Your gift of $30.00 will allow 5 other people to experience the You Matter magic. A gift of $300 will extend the experience to 50 people. You get the idea. Give whatever you can to extend our reach to millions more.
Thank you for helping others, finding meaning, and mattering more in this time of trouble.
