Education is the key to a better, more fulfilling life. The more you know, the more you grow.
I am thrilled to partner with Super Stars Literacy, a California-based literacy and education program created in 2002 by the Junior League of Oakland-East Bay, Inc. (JLOEB), an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
Because a child’s early literacy skills are a strong predictor of their later academic achievement, Super Stars Literacy provides at-risk kindergarten through 2nd grade students with daily, after-school literacy instruction which enables them to reach grade-level reading ability by the end of 2nd grade. SSL currently serves 420 students at nine high-poverty East San Francisco Bay Area elementary schools, and is expanding to serve 2500 students per year by 2015.

I am thrilled to announce that Mom Bloggers for Social Good has partnered with Latina Bloggers Connect to further spread the message of our partners to an active, growing, and supportive niche within the mom blogging community. Founded by Ana Flores in 2010, Latina Bloggers Connect is the oldest brand/blogger network specifically for Latina bloggers.
Working with Latina Bloggers Connect in an organic and authentic way will help us reach a wider audience and spread the message of Mom Bloggers for Social Good’s partners to a more diverse demographic of moms.
Today high level talks took place at the World Food Programme’s Rome headquarters. Why? The Sahel region in western Africa is in dire threat of experiencing famine just like we are currently seeing in the Horn of Africa. Aid and humanitarian agencies are coming together to ensure they are ready for the impending food shortages that are being caused by food inflation costs, drought, conflict, and displacement.
Our friends at the World Food Programme are not only working to prevent hunger on the high level, but they are also on the ground feeding those in need of food, and are educating the masses about how important it is to ensure everyone has enough food to eat, no matter where a person lives on earth.
The World Food Programme is looking for a passionate supporter to highlight in their March newsletter that is sent to nearly a million people worldwide.
Take a few minutes and upload a video online telling the World Food Programme why you’re fighting hunger, and then share your link. If you would like to write a post instead, you can post a message here.
Be sure to upload your video or post your message by February 20 to be considered.
