I matter, you matter


MANCHESTER >> The "You Are Never Alone Foundation" invites everyone join in celebrating the Fifth Annual Worldwide "I Matter, You Matter" day on March 28.

It's a day to remember that everyone matters.

It's Simple: Take a moment to remind yourself you matter, then remind your family, friends, co-workers, someone you may not know that they matter with a smile, a wave, a hug, a card, a text, an email or a Caring Coin. (Paper Caring Coins are available on www.yanaf.org to print, cut, sign and share)

The first Celebration in 2012 was at Friendly's in Manchester. Local families and schools shared the message with family and friends. Over 6.000 invitations were shared through Facebook around the world.This message from a Mother touched many "3/28/12 is my son's 11th Bday - he is twice exceptional - gifted with a social disability-this day celebrates what I wish everyone in his world understands."

Last year Joseph Wooten of the Steve Miller Band joined in celebrating "I Matter, You Matter" Day which led to the "I Matter, You Matter" Caring Blankets for the Homeless. Over 17,430 people here in the U.S., England, Italy Spain, Bangladesh, Nepal, Korea, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand, India and other places joined in the celebration.

Each time we acknowledge someone with a smile, a wave, a hug, a card, a text, an email or a Caring Coin, they feel good and so do we. We are making a difference in our world.
