The largest women’s blogging conference, Blogher, just wrapped last weekend and we were there to join our friends at Save the Children for an intimate dinner at Phil Stefani’s in Chicago to discuss the lifesaving and uplifting work they do around the world for women, children, and families. I also spoke at the dinner and shared photos and experiences I have had visiting Save the Children sites in Ethiopia, India, and Zambia.
While the photo above doesn’t show everyone who attended the dinner several members of the Global Team of 200 including Nicole Melancon, Jennifer Barbour, Amanda Moutaki, Stacey Weckstein, and Kristine Brite (not in photo) were there. Also in photo: Tanya Weinberg and Phil Carroll of Save the Children.
Additionally, in a video address to BlogHer, Melinda Gates urged women bloggers to use their influence for good. In that address Gates mentioned Mom Bloggers for Social Good and the work we’ve done this year to spread the word about newborn health. That was a nice surprise indeed!
Thank you, Melinda Gates, for recognizing our community and the work we do for mothers and babies.
