Thanks to the generous advocacy of Sarah Tachon, one of our long time YuMMies, Wisconsin is getting a warm dose of kindness with the brand new Spread Goodness Day! This year, Governor Evers declared March 8th as the official Spread Goodness Day in the state.

Sarah, a passionate YuMMie for the last 6 years, highlights the strong connection the holiday has with the You Matter Marathon. Sarah emphasizes the core message: reminding individuals of their importance and fostering a sense of belonging. Sarah mentions You Matter Marathon during the Spread Goodness Day proclamation, which you can watch here.

Students celebrating Spread Goodness Day

There were plenty of fun events that were planned for the day. Teachers in the school district were given donuts. Students were encouraged to wear yellow while they passed out You Matter cards with baked goods. There was live music at three local nursing homes. Police officers also read to 3rd graders and delivered yellow flowers to the older adults in the community.

Spread Goodness Day may be over for this year, but the opportunity to create a kinder world continues every day. Here are some fun ways to spread goodness in your community:

      • Volunteer for causes you care about.
      • Give back to local charities.
      • Mentor a young person.
      • Organize a community cleanup.
      • Perform random acts of kindness, big or small.
