Our Motto: Individually we are all powerful. Together we can change the world. We believe in the power of collective action to help others and believe in ourselves to make this world a better place for our children and the world’s children.
Global Team of 200 Member: Lauren Beihoffer
Lauren is a lover of nature, avid hiker, chemistry professor and a mother to two boys adopted from across the globe–one who happens to have autism. She fiercely believes that adventure is for all and uses her blog (http://hikebloglove.com) to inspire others to get outdoors and live a life of adventure despite the obstacles that might stand in the way.
When not blogging about the outdoors, Lauren uses her voice to advocate for the adoption and welfare of older, special needs orphans of the world. As both an adoptive mother and special needs mom, she is passionate about raising awareness in the areas that have affected her at a personal level, such as orphan care, family preservation, HIV/AIDS and autism. In 2009, she helped create a mom-powered organization to raise funds for the children and families of Vietnam, the birth country of one of her sons. She also is a regular contributor to the Social Good column at World Moms Blog.
