I am excited to announce that Mom Bloggers for Social Good has officially partnered with Malaria No More. Malaria No More is determined to help the world reach the global goal of near zero malaria deaths by 2015. Malaria No More leverages high-impact communications to engage the world, global advocacy to rally leadership and strategic investments to accelerate progress.

Members: Next week’s action campaign will be to spread the word about Malaria No More’s recent “Dream Big” campaign with Katharine McPhee.
I am extremely thrilled to announce that Mom Bloggers for Social Good’s newest partner is Water.org! Water.org is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation.
When I was in Kenya last summer I saw how important clean water is to everyone who lives on the continent. The fact that there isn’t complete access to clean water everywhere was staggering.
And it’s equally hard to comprehend that over 4 million people die from water diseases every year. We often take for granted that we don’t have to walk miles to get water and spend time to boil it and that we have access to clean water in our homes. We just cannot fathom living without clean water and sanitation until you see it.
I met this mother and her son in Kisumu, Kenya last year. She told us she had to walk two miles to get water for her entire family. Two miles! Process that for a moment.
Everyone deserves access to clean water and sanitation. It’s a basic human right.
I cannot wait for members of Mom Bloggers for Social Good to spread the word about the great work Water.org does for people the world over.
Today marks the official launch of Mom Bloggers for Social Good. I couldn’t be more happy about how everything has turned out so far. We are launching with 400 mom bloggers from all over the world who have dedicated their social media and blogging platforms to spread the word about the good work our partners are doing and collectively tell our readers, fans, friends, and followers about any of their new initiatives, advocacy campaigns, or fundraising efforts.
2012 is the year of helping others in need by helping those who work every day for social change.
