nothing’s going to get better, it’s not.”
What a Marathon!
Believe it or not, we tripled the number of people who signed up for the 2021 You Matter Marathon! Even during this continued time of social distancing, we knew that this was too critical a time not to share You Matter cards.
And boy did you share You Matter cards!
As a result, a whole lot of You Matter magic has been unleashed in the world. And the ripples of your generosity, courage and kindness will live on in the hearts of those you have touched, most especially mine.
In fact, we had 58 YuMMies celebrate their fifth year of sharing You Matter Magic!
Our 2021 Community
The YMM now has 9,497 total participants. And we have 364 Ambassador organizations from all 50 states, and 98 countries. We are still adding the total # of cards shared but a conservative estimate is over 567,307.
Let’s Keep the Magic Going!
