Share Your Story for IMA's #feelgoodchallenge
Video: impactSHOW Ep. 5 Feel Good Update


We are all well aware of the challenges facing us right now. And those challenges are serious.

At the same time, we also need to support and uplift each other as we move through these difficult times. IMA has always looked to the future and opportunities for positive transformation.

I'd like to invite you to share a positive experience or generous moment that has inspired you. It might be a business creatively sourcing and donating paper goods to people in need. Or a creative use of technology to help keep a workforce safe. Or a musician playing a song for someone in a care home facility.

As we move through this global reset, it's essential to capture and share good news about the things we can do to support each other in both business and community. As a global community, IMA is here to do its part.

In partnership with Evite, your story will be shared with thousands across the globe.

Please use the link below to share an uplifting short video or a photo. And visit the IMA website often where we'll be compiling these messages.

Message from Literacy Project

Do you remember your favorite book as a kid? One that you were fully immersed into the world the author's words would take you to? Was it the wizarding world of Harry Potter or getting tongue twisted with Dr. Seuss? Dr. Seuss said, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." Unfortunately many children won't have the opportunity to be drawn into new worlds by books because they cannot read. Illiteracy is a threat to the livelihood and success of our youth.
