In an age of isolation, the You Matter Marathon is seeking to connect us through our common desire to be seen and to be recognized as valuable. The You Matter Marathon does this with the help of an army of volunteers who distribute “You matter” cards to friends and strangers alike.

As their mission statement says, “We believe that the world would be a more peaceful and joyful place if every person knew they mattered. We believe that the path to a more joyful world begins with daily acts of connecting in positive and sincere ways that honor our common humanity.”

In the spirit of doing little things with great love, this mission confidently believes that it’s the small things — the way we interact with each other, regarding each other with love and humility– that will save the world. You can join the marathon here.
