It only take ONEMum – Please join in and speak up !

Michelle from Mummy from The Heart and Jen from BritMums have just embarked on their trip to  Ethiopia with ONE. This  ONEMums trip  is all about sharing  the work that ONE are doing and how lives are being positively changed as result.

I bet you have heard of ONE ? Led by the gorgeous, fabulous Bono One is an advocacy organization dedicated to the fighting poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.  They work with government leaders to support proven, solutions to save lives and help build sustainable futures.

Backed by a movement of more than 3 million ONE members, ONE achieves change through advocacy,  holding world leaders to account for the commitments they’ve made to fight extreme poverty, they  campaign for better development policies, more effective aid and trade reform..

ONE  are  not asking for your money, they are asking for your voice

ONEMums (ONEMoms) was brought about through the notion that all parents share a connection, and if we come together we could make a lot of noise.  I think parent bloggers are the perfect people to support this project….. because we love to talk!

This trip by Michelle and Jen is all about showcasing what can be done and what actually works to renew hope and to encourage us to raise our voices higher. I would love you to join me in supporting this.

Here is how you can help:
