I want to act up!

Hi! I am a new mother. I want to connect with other mothers who are acting up, too. How can we get the word out about this group and start some juicy conversations?

acting up

I am game to work on and support poverty alleviation projects which promote financial independence among orphans and/or child led families. I'm carving out some time in my life to devote to this and am seeking a worthy project to commit to.

with the world economy in shambles and the holidays coming, I am looking for some creative ways that my family can make a difference for other during the holiday season. I would like to involve our kids ages 4, 8 and 11. I would welcome any ideas.

We live in Oakland, CA

Genice,

Do you know Entrepreneurs Foundation in the Bay Area? Check out this link for ideas about alleviating hunger. The ideas are geared for companies, but I thought you might glean some ideas for your family.

What I like about working with your local food pantry is that feeding people provides a tangible service and, as you know, it opens up the conversation to discuss root causes of hunger: just the fact that for some families that it is a choice between putting a roof over their head or food on their table.

This was just an immediate thought that came to mind.

Love,
Jennifer
