Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Stand Up for Mom and ONE this Mother's Day

Posted by Deb Ballam – StandingWomen.org volunteer and ONE member, Columbus, OH  


Mother's Day is quickly approaching. So what am I going to be doing this weekend? As an Ohio ONE members and a volunteer for StandingWomen.org, I'm going to use StandingWomen.org's Mother's Day event as an opportunity to spread the word about the fight against extreme poverty.

On May 13, led by StandingWomen.org, women will be gathering at 1 pm in local parks, school yards, and other gathering places to stand in silence for 5 minutes to think about all the children in the world you still need access to clean water, food and education.

What will you be doing? I invite you to gather with your family and the ONE members your area too. We hope that you'll wear ONE shirts and bands and talk to others in your community about what we can all do to make this a safer, healthier world for our children.
