ABC News To Launch Million Moms Challenge

ABC News To Launch Million Moms Challenge

I’m excited to share that #ONEMOMS will be featured in the kickoff of ABC News’ Million Moms Challenge, launching on Monday, Sept. 19th.
The Challenge goes beyond a single cause, and is a call-to-action to engage a million Americans with millions of moms overseas to raise awareness  about the challenges facing moms and babies in the developing world.  (Did you know, for example, that every 90 seconds a woman dies in childbirth?)

The Million Moms Challenge will be featured in weekly segments across ABC News (including Good Morning America, World News with Diane Sawyer, Nightline and 2020)… leading up to a Diane Sawyer primetime hour in December on maternal health.

How can you be a part?  If you’re in NYC area:
1.      Show up at 7:30 a.m. Monday morning September 19th – outside ABC News’ Times Square Studio – on the southeast corner of 44th and Broadway.  You’ll be  finished by 9.    Feel free to wear T shirts from partner organizations – or even printed with pics of your own mom.
If Not, snap a pic and send it to

1.       Hold up the index finger of your right hand, and  open your left palm, like this:
2.       Write or stamp the words “Million Moms” on the palm of your left hand .
3.       Kids can write on their hands – even draw pictures of their moms!
4.       When the shot is live…Smile for the camera!
Bottom line: ABC News is asking folks to raise their hands for moms and babies around the world.

Remember, you don’t have to be a mom to help a mom. You just have to be one in a million.

And if you can’t make it to Times Square, try to catch GMA on Monday (8-9 EST)…then  snap your own picture at home with the Million Moms symbol and send it ASAP to the Gmail above-or share it with your networks!
