Tomorrow a team of ten bloggers along with a representative from ABC News will be traveling to Kenya as part of the #ONEMoms movement spreading the word about ONE. For those of you not familiar with ONE and their mission, they are a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressuring political leaders to support smart and effective policies and programs that are saving lives, helping to put kids in school and improving futures. ONE is an organization that stretches from co-founder Bono to my college friend and ONE employee Kim to me and to you. For the next week I will have the honor of spreading the word about “ONE Week” through my blog and social media channels while my blogging peers are on the ground in Kenya. “ONE Week” is a week long social media event following 10 bloggers making their way through Kenya with ONE from July 25th-30th to see what life is really like for moms in the developing world. While in Kenya, the 10 bloggers will be checking in regularly with accounts of what they’re seeing and hearing, as well as daily actions tied to their trips and access to experts who can explain the key issues these women will see firsthand.
And you can join them in making a difference.
