Launched in January 2012 Mom Bloggers for Social Good is a global coalition of 2000+ mom bloggers who currently span seventeen countries and who care about spreading the good news about the amazing work non-profit organizations and NGOs are doing around the world. When our partners need to reach the masses about new initiatives, advocacy campaigns, or fundraising efforts we work voluntarily and collectively to spread the word through social media and blogging.
We launched with 400 founding members who committed their social media and blogging platforms to share the messages of our partners.
If you’d like to learn more about what we do, see our infographic on how Mom Bloggers for Social Good works.
