MomItForward – helping out the Moms!

Tonight, I am joining in on a charity movement about which I have a connection.

As you know, we spent 5 months in Nairobi, Kenya in 2007 while my wife interviewed women, mostly Moms, living with HIV/AIDS. We helped children while we were in Kenya through a movement started by our kids – Caring Across Continents.

Here is a movement that is focused on helping some of the Moms.

Mom It Forward is the newest trend in mom groups and makes giving back fun, sociable, accessible, and stylish—the new “in crowd” of moms where “mom” is a verb. Not only is it fun, fosters friendships, but it is all for a good cause—serving and teaching service to our children.

The Mom It Forward mission is “to change the world one mom at a time.” We will achieve that by 1) strengthening women, 2) helping them become the best moms they can be, and 3) providing ideas, opportunities to, and recognition for carry(ing) out the Mom It Forward mission in small and large ways, locally as well as internationally.

I would like to encourage everyone to participate, blog, tweet, and spread the word about this opportunity to help those people that do their very best to help others everyday – Moms.

I’m joining the #GNO twitter charity hashtag. Details about this are located at this link –  here. You can see more information about further fundraising efforts – here. Today kicks off a 6-week effort to raise $50,000 and A LOT of awareness.

Join in and Mom It Forward
