MoveOn.Org Members: Please Nominate Help A Mother Out? #HAMO


Our gal Rachel F. just sent this link to me. It’s a call to action by MoveOn.Org. Their calling for nominations for worthy non profits MoveOn should support.

Are you a MoveOn member?

Won’t you please take 1 minute to nominate our grassroots organization to

This could be a GAME CHANGER for us. I hope you will considering sharing our cause with a large audience at and nominate us today.

Our name: Help A Mother Out

Is there anything else you’d like to tell us: Help a Mother Out (HAMO) is a nationally recognized grassroots organization dedicated to increasing access to diapers for families in need. Started by two moms (March, 2009) with an initial investment of $100, this one time diaper drive has developed into an innovative non profit raising both diapers (nearly half a million to date) and awareness. We advocate for long term change in federal social safety net programs, as no program (e.g., food stamps, WIC) currently includes diapers. Our vision is a day when every baby has an adequate supply of diapers.


The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, December 21st, at 9 a.m. EST. After nominations are submitted, MoveOn members will vote on which organizations to promote to the entire MoveOn membership for an end-of-the-year fundraiser. Voting will open on December 22nd—keep an eye out for an email announcement, and for details on how to vote.

Just a few of the reasons why we think you should nominate us:

  • Since March, 2009 we’ve collected nearly half a million diapers for homeless and low income families who have been hit hard by the economic downturn.
  • We aspire to be the MoveOn/MomsRising of the diaper cause!
  • We’re working hard with other public policy advocates to realize the vision of a day when diapers are included in federal safety net programs such as like WIC or Food Stamps.
  • You’ve heard of non profits operating on a shoe string budget? Well, ours is more like a dental floss budget. We are an all volunteer mom-run organization and your nomination would make a huge difference in raising awareness for our cause.

Thanks for nominating us to!
