Kenya: Take a Virtual Trip With and Help Change Lives

giving backmy worldglobal causesbettering communities

Change Lives—I love this quote by Helen Keller: "I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. "

Sometimes, helping people halfway across the world feels difficult. The distance divides us. Getting there requires lots of time and money. Options to help feel limited. What if you knew you could make a difference right from your home and without spending a dime? You can!

I leave for Kenya in just a few hours. Want to come? Regardless of where you are, you can virtually travel with me and the team as we make our way through cities and villages, visiting amazing African women and their families in hopes of both learning about and raising awareness for important global causes like maternal and child health care, education, agriculture, government, and more.

Lots of moms are joining in the trip—and many without even leaving their homes. Join us! Here's how:

  • See the chatter on Twitter at
  • Add to the conversation when you tag your tweets #ONEMoms.
  • Join the movement on the site (
  • Read about the wonderful people we're meeting in Africa and share your feedback in comments on the blog
