The news may be filled with stories of crises and collapse, but through every downfall we are seeing greatness as mothers heed the call for change. As Amie Nelson says in “How Mothers Can Change the World,”

The positive light among us is the growing swell of activism from women formerly in the shadows. From heads of state to soccer moms, mothers around the world are doing incredible work to inspire, educate and engage their communities.

Mothers are a force to be reckoned with, by their sheer numbers alone…The promising reality is that mothers are emerging as social advocates and political leaders. All over the world, female politicians are proud to emphasize their role as mothers--and even campaign as mothers.

Mothers are a universal symbol of the unique power women have to get things done, to survive insurmountable odds, and to help others in need.

On October 14, 2010 at Healthy Child Healthy World’s annual gala, one special and inspiring American woman dedicated to creating healthier environments for children will be honored.
