Mother’s day is coming up- and I love this message from ONE.org and former First Lady Laura Bush. It gets to the heart of the sanctity of every mother’s hopes and every child’s future.

Along with several other members of ONE’s Mom Advisory Council, I’ll be travelling to Kenya to witness and share the amazing “living proof” of the difference these efforts make. I’ve never been to Africa before, so as we’re getting ready, I’ll post my reading list if you’re interested.

We’ll also be hosting a live text chat at 1 pm EST tomorrow, May 5th, at The MotherHood– pop over if you get a chance, or read the transcripts later.

Disclosure: My participation in the ONE Council is not compensated, and this post is 100% my opinion. I will be a guest of the organization while in Kenya.
