“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing’s going to get better, it’s not.”
–Dr. Seuss

What a Marathon!

Believe it or not, we had over 7,000 participants who signed up for the 2023 You Matter Marathon! 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.

Our 2023 Community
The YMM now has over 18,000 total participants. And we have 147 Ambassador organizations from all 50 states, and 100 countries. We are still adding the totals but estimate  2.6 million YOU MATTER cards have been shared since 2016!

Let’s Keep the Magic Going!
