You were born to make an impact. Accept that you matter. Accept that your work and ideas count. Accept your role as agents of change.
Use what you have all the way.
You have the opportunity to stand for something. Do the people you see each day KNOW they matter to you? Start now. Inspire many.
Imagine the possibilities.
You don’t need permission to speak up. It's time to act. Ask yourself: What breaks your heart about the world? What are WE going to do about it?
Don’t wait a single moment.

Two Words: You Matter
In this June 2011 speech, Angela Maiers spoke of how these two words can
change lives and change our world, if we understand them and we leverage
them in the right way. People everywhere reacted powerfully to this call to
action, undertaking awe-inspiring quests to address problems in our world.
Choose2Matter was created in response to this breathtaking reaction.
Those Who "Chose"
Mallory Fundora, a 7th grader at Rossview Middle School in Clarksville, Tennessee decided at age 11 that in lieu of Christmas presents, she wanted to "help Africa". From this simple wish, Mallory became the founder of Project Yesu a not for profit organization that provides food, medicine and education for children in Uganda. Based on the quote "be the change you want to see in the world" Mallory decided she wanted to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of children living halfway around the world.
Mallory is also making a difference locally by speaking at events, encouraging other kids her age to step up and make a difference. "It doesn't have to be halfway around the world, it can be in your school, your community, your neighborhood. When you see a problem, do something about it, be the change!" says Mallory.
