“Six-Words On Why Moms Matter”: Few Words, Big Impact
May 7, 2010 § Leave a comment
In honor of all women, and mothers in particular, there’s a campaign you need to know about. Women ONE2ONE.
Created by the inspiring people at ONE.org, the campaign is “aimed at saving the lives and increasing the opportunity of women who live in extreme poverty. As mediators, connectors and advocates we believe in the power of women to make this change.”
On the Mother’s Day, to raise awareness and help reach their goal of having 1 million women join the effort to combat extreme poverty and preventable disease, ONE.org has partnered with SMITH Magazine to launch an initiative encouraging women to write brief but meaningful messages for their mothers. It’s called “Six Words on Why Moms Matter.”
Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a novel in six words. His offering — “For sale: baby shoes, never worn” — is the inspiration for the wildly popular SIX-WORD MEMOIR™ project from SMITH Magazine.
ONE has partnered with SMITH Magazine to launch Women ONE2ONE’s Six Words on Why Moms Matter campaign in honor of your mother and moms around the globe and to help raise awareness of the importance of mothers and the struggles many are facing every day.
Go ahead. Join the over 7,000 women who’ve already done so. Write your six words. Then send them to your mother. It will make her day. In fact, it will make your day too.
