Global Mom Relay: Moms Sharing it Forward

By Global Moms Challenge

March 11, 2013

We are Global_Mom_Relay_Logo_blog_postthrilled to be supporting the “Global Mom Relay” — a groundbreaking online discussion by leading voices including Jennifer Lopez and her sister Lynda Lopez, Arianna Huffington, Elizabeth Gore, Barbara Bush, Reema Nanavaty and Rocky Dawuni, to highlight the urgent need to improve the health of mothers and children around the world. Each will share thoughts on the great mothers in their lives and ways moms have inspired them, or on being a mother themselves.

You may have heard of “pay it forward.”  Now, we’re asking you to “share it forward!”  From March 8th, International Women’s Day, to May 8th in honor of Mother’s Day, every time you share a story from the Global Mom Relay, $5 will be donated by Johnson & Johnson and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (up to $8,000 per day or $500,000 total) to one of four initiatives that are helping women and children lead healthy, happy lives.

By simply sharing a post, you can support girls’ education and empowerment, clean cooking solutions, mobile messages to support pregnant and new mothers, and childhood vaccines for those who need them most. Together we can make a difference for mothers and children.

You can also join the conversation, by answering this question. What’s the best advice a mother ever gave you? Remember to share it forward and unlock the potential! This is a take action challenge you can take every day for the next couple of months and really make an impact!

Bookmark the Global Mom Relay and come back daily after 9am EST to share the new post of the day to unlock a new donation! Every time you share, a new donation is made by Johnson & Johnson and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
