Groovy Green Livin Mom on a Mission

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Healthy Child Healthy World Mom on a Mission® campaign, it’s “designed to honor those who truly make a difference. Currently in its fifth year, the program aims to recognize all that moms do to make the world a better place as women, consumers, thought leaders and role models for future generations.”  It’s a celebration of moms dedicated to creating healthier environments for children.

I’m incredibly honored that Healthy Child Healthy World has named me a Mom on a Mission finalist for 2013, recognizing my work advocating on behalf of children and their families.

I share this honor with all of you who have supported me in my efforts. Tide agreeing to reformulate their laundry detergent to reduce the amounts of a cancer causing chemical was a true testament to the power of our collective voices.  The support received after starting a petition asking Disney to remove toxic chemicals from their Spiderman and princess lunch boxes encourages me to continue on. You can read my full story HERE.

Over the years I’ve heard bits and pieces about the Mom on a Mission campaign and seen some of my green heroes make their way to the top of the list. Tamara Rubin founded Lead Safe America to promote protective policies after two of her four children were lead poisoned during a routine home renovation. She turned her tragedy into a crusade for lead safety and completed a documentary called “Mislead: America’s Secret Epidemic.” She was named the 2011 Mom on a Mission. My friend Penelope Jagessar Chaffer was the 2010 Mom on a Mission for her inspirational film“Toxic Baby”.

Healthy Child Healthy World has been a tremendous influence throughout my blogging career. Their efforts to create a world where parents feel empowered to make a difference and their belief that  “No one can do everything. Everyone can do something.” ring true in my world too. Working as a Parent Ambassador with Healthy Child Healthy World has helped shape my belief that our collective voices can make a difference.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years it’s that advocacy work takes a village. Thankfully there are so many amazing  people and organizations willing to go out on a limb to make the world a better place for all. It’s incredible to see how powerful we really are when we set our intentions high.

Together we can make a difference. I share this nomination with all of YOU!

Thank you Healthy Child Healthy World.
