“We’ve been giving You Matter cards to everyone who delivers to us since the pandemic began.”
–Cindy from PA
Dear YuMMies (my term of endearment for You Matter Marathon participants):
And we’re off!
Welcome to week 1 of the Marathon! Hope you’ve already started to experience the You Matter magic. Goodness knows the world can use some right about now!
Currently, our community consists of over 3,500 individuals and organizations from 91 countries.
“I’m a card-giving addict! I started with the first marathon (anything that doesn’t include running is for me 😊) and have given out over 100 cards a year, and recently outfitted my staff with You Matter masks. I add cards to ‘comfort kits’ that I give to people on the streets. This year, for Halloween, I added one to each individual treat bag. I just think it’s so important for everyone to be reminded how important they are, because it’s so very easy to forget.”
–Kim from Poughkeepsie, NY
