Inspiring Mother Activism
Here's something to inspire and nourish your activism -- The 2009 Mothers Acting Up Calendar and Guide for Advocating on Behalf of the World's Children. The 2009 MAU Calendar, The Moment, is dedicated to moments of personal change that shift the direction and purpose of our lives. Often these extraordinary moments are heralded by very ordinary tasks. They arrive — when we’re cradling babies, grocery shopping or bicycling — and begin magically transforming us into passionate advocates.
The Moment is a weekly engagement calendar that also offers tools, information, weekly actions and most importantly, portraits of people who inspire our own activism – from new moms to Isabel Allende, Paul Hawken, Mukhtar Mai, Julie Chavez Rodriguez and Ann Veneman. This calendar and guide is a tribute to pivotal moments of change, designed to incite your own year of Moments!
Gorgeous, full color, 6.5 X 9 inches, soft cover & spiral bound, two year-at-a glance section. $20

From Kathleen in Colorado:
WOW! It is with immense gratitude that I sit here typing. My eyes full of tears. The calendar, to me, represents what we are, as humans, capable of. My groceries sat on the counter waiting to be put away, the phone calls, emails, laundry and errands became something in the background as I opened the calendar and started to read. I was drawn in... I feel full of hope and so inspired and I haven't yet had time to read all of the stories! It is deliciously gorgeous! A book of humanity and all of the gems that come out of injustice, hardship, life as it is sometimes and hope for change. Being the change you wish to see in the world.
