At the same time, I want to celebrate and make known the value of women who are being women. Women who are being single, married, with children and without. Women who live their lives every day and want the joy, the pleasure, and all that comes with being a woman. I want people the world over to understand that being a woman, a woman who lives her life, who claims her place in the world is a person to be admired, respected and copied. I am a woman. I am celebrating International Women’s Day by being proud to be a woman, by being proud to be me. (via International Women’s Day - Let Me Be Me | Janeane’s World)

Almost everyone has heard the expression, “You never miss the water until the well runs dry.” On two occasions over the past two years I have found this expression to be true. Two years ago I was feeling sick to my stomach, my head hurt, I was dizzy and was having trouble breathing. I had no idea what the problem was. It turned out that I was dehydrated. A year later, I was taking medication because I had a bronchial infection. I took a pill without water and my throat was severely burned as a result. These two incidents both required medical attention and treatment. In other words I was extremely ill because I had not been drinking enough water. I was then and am still embarrassed that living in one of the richest countries in the world, in a home I owned with a perfectly good running water system, yet I was sick because I did not drink water.

Gift giving from the Oxfam America Unwrapped catalogue of items is gift giving that can take place all year long. With a simple $1.00 per day you can send an Oxfam America Unwrapped gift each month. Think about what an impact it will have on your children to give a useful present to a needy family each month. This would teach your children to help others to help themselves. It would also help them understand how fortunate they are since they are able to give to others. Wouldn’t it be nice to look back at the end of 2013 and see that your family has made life better in a real and concrete way for families in need around the world? Let’s start today.

I am the mother of four children so naturally, the concerns and cares of mothers around the world are my concerns. In addition, I almost died giving birth to my twin daughters five years ago. So any organization that has as its motto, “No woman should die giving birth” will have my attention and respect. When I was giving birth to my twins, and getting close to death, I did not experience fear because I lived in America and was having my baby at a very good teaching hospital in a major city. I emerged fine and was released from the hospital without any extended stay. Sadly, results like these are not possible for women in some parts of the world.

The  incredible thing and the reason why you should care and do whatever you can to support  the WFP’s program in Bolivia is that the school meal program does more than simply give children food, it gives them hope.  Hunger is real and serious problem found around the world.  In Bolivia hunger is a special problem that endangers children and families.  Children who come to school hungry  are not able to concentrate and it is difficult for them to learn.  By providing meal to school children, the WFPis helping create a better world for the children of  Bolivia.

By explaining the Oxfam Grow program like this, I was able to teach my girls a valuable lesson that they will be able to use all their lives. It is important to teach your children how to deal with hunger and food issues while they are young so that it can become part of their lives, something that they will eventually teach their own children.

In my opinion, Social Media for Social Good is a way of harnessing individual power and social media influence in order make the world a better place. When individual voices join together to achieve a common purpose, great things can and do happen. Social Media for Social Good enables women from around the world to come together and create the world they have always dreamed would exist.
