Here’s a chance to participate in something big, something amazing, something relevant and extremely important. This coming Monday the Million Moms Challenge begins its mission to create a global community where every mother has the tools for a healthy pregnancy and a baby who can thrive. This is a call to action to engage a million Americans with the millions of moms in the developing world facing issues regarding their pregnancies, childbirth and children’s health.
If you want to hear more about the campaign or participate there are so many ways to get involved:

- The Million Moms Challenge web site, www.MillionMomsChallenge.com will go live the morning of Monday, September 19th as will the official Million Moms Community. Simply go the ‘community’ tab and become a member.
- In October, BabyCenter will host the BabyCenter’s ABC Million Moms Challenge Global Baby Shower, an online party that will be held on Twitter and The BabyCenter Community. Keep your eye out for the official date (coming soon).
The Million Moms Challenge is a joint venture between ABC News and the UN Foundation in conjunction with Baby Center and World Class Partners. Using traditional and social media this initiative will build a community that connects moms everywhere around crucial issues that are a priority for all mothers, including the right nutrition to support their pregnancies, trained mid-wives to assist in safe deliveries of newborns, and life-saving vaccines that allow children celebrate their first birthdays. To launch the initiative, hundreds of moms, dads, babies and kids will gather in Times Square for the official launch set to air on Good Morning America on Monday, September 19th.
I am one of the million. Are you?
