Let’s talk Mom World Changers.

Moms who are making stride to better this world for us and our children. Not the celebrity moms who are staring you down on the magazines at the grocery store, wearing their tiny bikinis – 2 weeks after delivering a baby.

We’re talking moms who inspire. Moms who are changing our world for the greater good.

It’s time for the Mom World Changers to be recognized and Babble is doing just that!

Babble has launched a new campaign, “Mominations.”  The goals is to spotlight those moms who are inspiring, noteworthy activists, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, politicians, executives and other leaders who are making a difference. Babble’s nominating panel, which consist journalists, bloggers, politicians, filmmakers and more, compiled an initial list of 100 influential moms. But Babble wants to hear from YOU! Who is it in your community that is doing great thing? Mominate an inspiring mother you know and she’ll have the change to win $5,000 for her favorite cause.

One mom who is making a difference is Elizabeth Spelke. She is a mom to two children and a Harvard psych professor. Elizabeth is Director of the school’s Laboratory for Developmental Studies. She has spent the last 30 years researching how infants learn and reach developmental milestones as well as what we can do to communicate with children better. Much of what we understand about the infant mind can be credited to Spelke. Read more about Elizabeth Spelke and the initial list of 100 influential moms.

Don’t forget to mominate an inspiring mother you know! Voting ends on September 6, and Babble’s panel of judges will pick the winners on September 12!
