Today we are talking about HUGS NOT DRUGS®, an organization dedicated to helping kids in poverty by supplying school supplies, backpacks and more. HUGS NOT DRUGS® is organized by one of our dear friends (and director), Marla Gideos. As part of the Backback Program, Marla's goal this year is to buy 1000 backpacks for children in need. Just $5 (or more) per donation will provide a whole year of support.
Follow Marla's example and show kids that they matter. One action, no matter how small, can change the lives of many children and the world. Won't you join us?

Photos from the JDRF Walk-a-thon! That morning was such a blast helping out this great foundation. We were all proud to "turn our backs" on diabetes - literally!
Even though the Walk-a-thon is over, you can still donate to our team. Remember, every little action counts! #YOUMATTER Thank you!

Did you see your grandparents over the holidays? I did. They’re such extraordinary people: My grandmother works at a nursing home taking care of people (some younger than her), while my grandfather works out at the gym three times a week, along with volunteering at his local church. Many people don’t expect these activities to be performed by elders, but it’s very important to acknowledge the potential of everyone, regardless of their age.
Harry J. Getzov (author of “gOLD”, book pictured above pressed to my sister’s forehead) shed light on the perspective of elders through his newly published book, by having “inspiring conversations” with elderly people. If you listen to stories your grandparents and elder relatives have to share, you might find a topic that will spark your interest. Elders have more knowledge and experience than many people seem to realize – and that really does matter. My mom interviewed Mr. Getzov, listen here.
Remember to spread the You Matter message to people young and old and everything in between!~YMYL Anna
