I believe in using my blog for social good because I consider it my responsibility to improve the lives of others if given the opportunity. If even one reader sees my message and takes action, it’s worth my time and effort on the blog. Plus, it feels good to do good.
Alison Fine, the author of Matterness: What Fearless Leaders Know About the Power and Promise of Social Media, recently gave a TED Talk and mentioned Social Good Moms and our community of moms. See the mention at 9:56.
Thank you, Alison!
We always maintain that having a community of socially-minded mom bloggers is the key to informing everyday people about critical global issues that they may otherwise not know about. That is important to us. Our members do this primarily through their social engagement with their followers and readers as well as through blogging. See our weekly report in real time.
This week we spread awareness about Save the Children’s #GetReady campaign, SOS Children’s USA’s push to help Syria’s children, Tim Matsui’s continued work to bring awareness to sex trafficking and Pangea’s new Social Good webinars.

For the next few weeks we will feature videos of Social Good Moms and members of our Global Team of 200 sharing why they love being a part of our community of moms.
The first mom that we’re featuring is Samantha Sophia. Follow her at @raisingself.
“I’m a mother, I’m a wife, I’m a corporate professional, I’m a blogger and I am a Global Team of 200 member. In my little Southern California neighborhood, you couldn’t imagine that there were any people in the world suffering from extreme poverty or inequality. I drive through manicured communities, sit in a modern office overlooking perfect skylines, and Instagram the abstract beauty of the hipster farm to table restaurant I went to with a gal pal for lunch. To see me now, you couldn’t imagine that just one generation ago, not a member of my family had ever gone to university. You can’t see that my seeming success is propped up by generations of women with no access to something as basic as an education.
I’m a Global Team of 200 member because I care about my global community, because I have a deep desire not to turn away from but face reality head on and be a part of a conduit for social change. I am a Global Team of 200 member because I believe our collective voices have power enough to move the mountains of adversity and struggle faced by our brothers and sisters across the world.”
