As a founding member of Mom Bloggers for Social Good, begun by Jennifer James, I’ll be upholding one of the main goals for my blog – advocating for nonprofits. When I got the email about this opportunity, I was in the hospital. I didn’t know if I’d be home for Christmas and I was hurting, but this email made my day! Helping to raise awareness about charities, helping with fundraising and helping to raise money for trips for bloggers to take part in the these nonprofit partners’ projects is more than I can ask for.
You can still join and take part in of Mom Bloggers For Social Good. Once you do, you’ll get weekly emails about new charity partners and what you can do to help. It can be as simple as sending out a tweet or writing a blog post. There are a number of social causes that you can choose that interest you including:
Working together as a network of bloggers and using our social media voices, through Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. we can make a huge difference for people in need and the nonprofits that aim to help them.

Being involved in this network is a dream come true for me. I’ve been an advocate for nonprofits and social causes for a while now on my blog, but working along with other amazing bloggers with Mom Bloggers for Social Good will make the difference by gaining a bigger audience. Thanks to the other Founding Members and those to come and of course to Jennifer James for her inspiration and putting her thoughts into action.
