Children everywhere deserve an exceptional education. In fact, it it their right. In Ethiopia, there is a 10-20% increase of school-age children meaning there is a greater need for educational materials.
Bruktawit Tigabu, the award-winning entrepreneur and co-founder of Tsehai Loves Learning, is bringing storybooks to thousands of children in Ethiopia and needs your help. Higher Circle has launched their Opening Books to Open Doors campaign where they are raising $10,000 to provide books for 4,000 Ethiopian schoolchildren.
$10 will provide four books for children in need. Donate now.
Below Bruktawit Tigabu talks about the importance of reading for Ethiopian children.

Moms around the world are making a difference and you can, too. Watch and spread the word!
This past weekend Mom Bloggers for Social Good had a presence at the Brands and Bloggers Summit in Chicago. This was a wonderful opportunity to spread the word about the work we do as a coalition of mom bloggers who care about pressing global and domestic issues.
During the day-long summit it was wonderful speaking with a whole host of mom bloggers and niche bloggers who were interested in the work we do collectively.
Below are photos of a few moms who stopped by our table. It was great meeting you!
