Mom on a Mission

I have recently discovered a site for parents called "Healthy Child, Healthy World". This site is full of wonderful information about children and issues involving their health. Make sure you bookmark them or Join the Movement to receive their communications, action alerts, and trusted information.

I recently contacted "Healthy Child, Healthy World" and requested permission to share their site and information with you. They have graciously accepted my request.

Here is an interesting article I wanted to share with you. I think it is very important to bring attention to those who go above and beyond, if you feel the same, take the time to read this and make your nomination:

We are you know a “Mom on a Mission"?

During the benefit dinner, this mom will be formally presented the first annual Healthy Child Healthy World “Mom on a Mission” award for her extraordinary service and inspiration.
