The Global Mom Relay is an amazing way to show our mothers gratitude.

Each time you share a Global Mom Relay post, a $5 donation is made by Johnson & Johnson and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Can you believe that some of the world's biggest problems have such a simple solution?

The Children's Prize has received several proposals regarding malaria prevention. The interventions are cost-effective and go a long way to impact a child's life!

Good morning, everyone!
Isn't the approach to education that this video captures powerful?
 
Interesting post from our colleagues at the National Environmental Education Foundation in the U.S.: 75% of 1,900 surveyed educators said students who spend regular time outdoors tend to be more creative & better problem-solvers. 77% of teachers believe using technology in the classroom increases student motivation to learn.

I am inspired, grateful and excited to be part of this noble vision!

One of the best aspects of working with +Ted Caplow and +The Children's Prize is the combination of engineering and philanthropy. Who wouldn't appreciate this? It's practicality meets social good!!

What would you do with $1 million? Here's one perspective: A Conversation with Ted Caplow.

"I’d like to save the lives of small children – as many as possible, but even one would be great. My wife and I are blessed with four young kids, and there is nothing more valuable in our universe."

Thank you, Foundation Source!

With good reason, sometimes being a potty mouth gets you the attention necessary. Crap!

On this #waterwednesday , I was reminded of this amazing little PSA video narrated by #mattdamon for this year's #worldwaterday .

"Quick, what invention saved the most lives in human history?" Well, you'll have to watch and find out for yourself. But believe me, it's worth it!!

This was the view while running a nature trail yesterday.

I'm so glad I went, the view by the water was stunning. As I stood there, it felt like this was my own private reward.. that I'd like to share with you!

This past week was a GREAT one!
I'd like to share this with you since I was away from my Google+ community. The Children's Prize has secured a partner, secured several experts for the Judging Committee and we've reached 109 different countries to date. 

More details to come in the coming weeks...
