#Relay4Kids Campaign Helping SOS Children's Villages
One of the things I love about blogging as Green Grandma is that I'm not bound to focusing on one issue alone. While "Green" speaks for itself, "Grandma" is a broad category -- one I continually redefine as necessary.
Part of caring for the earth is caring for the people inhabiting it. And not just those in our own neighborhoods. We need to have a global concern for people if we really want to make a difference and show our kids and grandkids what being human is all about.
Partnering with Mom Bloggers for Social Good, SOS Children's Villages is kicking off their #Relay4Kids campaign today. When anyone (that means you) shares posts from Huffington Post's Global Motherhood for the relay, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 to SOS Children's Villages.
Putting aside any issues we may have with the toxins and chemicals in products manufactured by the company, the good this money will do can't be denied. Simply by sharing posts, you can unlock $1 or more that will go directly to helping orphaned children globally as well as here in the US where SOS works with foster children in Illinois and Florida.
SOS Children's Villages build families for children in need as they help them shape their own futures. The organization shares in the development of their communities. They believe that every child belongs with a family and will grow with love, respect, and security.
To learn more about this wonderful organization, please take a few minutes to watch the video. And then share Huffington Post's Global Motherhood posts with the hashtag #Relay4Kids.
*Blogs must be shared between March 23 and April 24, on Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Tumblr and Google+ via the Huffington Post’s social media icons. Each share will trigger a $1 donation up to $30,000. There are no limits on how many times you can share a post.
** via the Donate A Photo app for iOS and Android. Johnson & Johnson has curated a list of trusted causes, and users can donate a photo to one cause, once a day. Each cause will appear in the app until it reaches its goal, or the donation period ends. If the goal isn’t reached, the cause will still receive a minimum donation.
