The first in 2012 was at the Friendly’s Restaurant in Manchester, when local families and schools shared the message with family and friends. Over 6,000 invitations were shared through Facebook around the world. In 2015, Joseph Wooten of the Steve Miller Band joined Salley Gibney and members of the former You Are Never Alone Foundation in celebrating ‘I Matter, You Matter’ Day, which led to the distribution of blankets to the homeless. Over 17,430 people in the US, England, Italy, Spain, Bangladesh, Nepal, Korea, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand and India also participated.
