Join us tomorrow. Put the kidnapped girls from Nigeria in the headlines. #BringBackOurGirls
 
New York City, NY -- This Tuesday, May 6th at 12pm EST, Girl Rising and Amy Poehler's Smart Girls initiative will be co-organizing a "Call to Action" Google Hangout in response to the abducted Nigerian school girls.

What's happening in Nigeria?

Tuesday marks three weeks since dozens of gunmen stormed the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria and abducted more than 200 girls who were asleep in their dormitories. Even as global media coverage grows, so do the fears of the families and communities of the missing girls.

#Bringbackourgirls

With every passing day, the crisis intensifies: where are these girls and what will it take to bring them home? Mounting outrage around the world is matched by an escalating desire to do something  anything  to bring these girls to safety and their captors to justice.

Inspired by the passion of our community, Girl Rising and Smart Girls will co-host an open forum: a meeting of experts, organizers and passionate global citizens to discuss what's happening and what we can do to help.

To that end, we'll also be sharing an "action pack" of tools so anyone can raise visibility about the unfolding situation -- and help build the momentum needed to get these girls home.

Go to www.girlrising.com or www.amysmartgirls.com for more information.

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls is a rapidly expanding online network and community movement whose aim is to help young women and the young at heart with the process of cultivating their authentic selves.

Girl Rising is a feature film and a global action campaign for girls’ education that uses the power of storytelling to spread the message that educating girls can transform societies.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Amy Poehler's Smart Girls. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Looks like a great way to tame the insanity and bring some organization to your home and family
 

As many of you know, Mommy Ramblings is  a Tidy Books Ambassador and we are so delighted to have been chosen for this opportunity.  We have already brought you the Tidy Books Book Case, Book Box and now we are back to show you the ForgetMeNot Family Organizer.

This handy station for your wall comes complete with a magnetic dry erase board,strong wooden magnets,dry erase marker, sturdy wooden pegs to hold back packs, tote bags, hoodies, dog leashes etc and a wooden pocket shelf for setting things that you don't want to forget.  It also includes the hanging hardware to make sure your message center stays secure on the wall.  We have not hung ours up yet because we are in major home construction phase and the area I want to hang it, is currently in the construction zone.  Don't worry I will update with pictures once we have.

The unit comes out of the box fully assembled and is available in natural, white, blue or red.  You can hang it in a hallway you frequent going in and out of the house, so that important notes, mail, keys or school items are in your sight. A center like this goes a long way in keeping children and parents organized.

This center is also great in a child's room for their own message center that can help them learn to be more responsible for things they need to remember.  Then can use the dry erase board to remind them of homework assignments or projects, chores, important things to do and more.  Most households would benefit having these in multiple places in the home.

All progress made in prior decades at risk of vanishing. Very sad. #poverty   #singlemom   #thepoor  
Although in recent decades women have made historic advances in nearly all areas of American public life, a staggering number of women across the country are still teetering on the verge of poverty and economic disaster, a new report released Sunday shows.
