“Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once,
but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.”
—Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Dear YMM’ers (You Matter Marathoners),
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 9,600 individuals and organizations from 99 countries.
You Matter Marathon Week One Challenge
Hand out one card each day to a family or friend.
Who will you give a card to today?
“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. 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
