I Matter, You Matter Day Worldwide I Matter, You Matter Day has its roots with EG’s own Salley Gibney. “Caring is contagious,” says Gibney. Opportunities to share caring run the gamut from a simple wave, a held door, a phone call or text to letters to veterans and those who are homebound. No matter the act – it counts. Read more about Gibney and I Matter, You Matter Day HERE.
