Working on everything from domestic violence to AIDS awareness to mental health and pro-family policies, most of these social media mavens started with a single idea that grew into so much more. They’ve created non-profit organizations, planned charitable events, and served as forum leaders and policy changers — all while empowering their readers to act. In between chronicling their kids’ field trips and flu shots on their own personal blogs, these parents still find the time to speak out on social issues, raise awareness, reduce stigma, and, ultimately, save lives. They’re simply inspiring.
There is so much good happening in the social media space today that it was nearly impossible to limit our list to just 25 parents. Because of this, Babble chose the following 25 parents as examples of the kind of amazing job many of you are doing when it comes to using social media to champion causes in your communities. We have not ranked these parents, as they — and you — are all wonderful in their own right.
Without further ado, here are Babble’s top 25 parent bloggers who are changing the world through social media, listed in alphabetical order. We hope you find inspiration in what they do, and feel emboldened to go out and make your own change in the world. — Babble Editors

Who she is: Fadra is the co-founder of Charitable Influence, a new social media-strategy firm for nonprofit organizations. She’s using her own expertise to help nonprofits understand how to use social media to raise awareness for their causes and is also providing a space for bloggers to join in on the campaigns they care about. Fadra has already secured partnerships with Kiva and the Humane Society of the United States.
Why we love her: Fadra is one of those bloggers who blows you away with her ability to do 12 zillion things at once. She writes her own blog at All Things Fadra, hosts the Stream of Consciousness Twitter Chat every Sunday, founded the consulting company Social Dialect, for which she writes a blog, and contributes to Charitable Influence, for which she also writes a blog. We’re starting to wonder if she’s bionic.
