This past weekend was Mother’s Day and I spend my Saturday volunteering on behalf of Women’s Drop In Center assisting a organization called Help A Mother Out (HAMO). Help A Mother Out held their annual tea over at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel (which is gorgeous but that is another post later on).
Help A Mother Out is a non profit based in the SF Bay Area and the only thing that they do is collect diapers and give them out to their community partners. Started back in 2009, Help A Mother Out has given out over 1 million diapers.
Hosted by Kristen Sze, one of our local news anchors, this event showcased the plight of some parents to provide diapers to their children. And the stats are bothersome. Some 22% of all children under five years old in the U.S. live in poverty, and one of every three families struggle to afford diapers. What really got to me is when Lisa mentioned that she get calls from across the state from government agencies asking for assistance (The government? Uhmmm how come they don’t already have a plan to help folks?!? a rhetorical question but cmon!)
And just think Executive Director Lisa Truong came up with the idea of starting this organization after watching a Oprah show. Yeah Oprah.
Here’s a video, shown at the event, that has some of the clients that they have assisted and how the need for diapers is so urgent.
And I hope all mothers, god mothers, mothers in waiting and mothers of the community enjoyed their Mothers Day.

Happy Earth Day!
Today is the day but in many communities the celebrations happened last weekend. Well what is Earth Day exactly. Here’s an explanation as taken from the Bay Area Earth Day website:
“Earth Day is a day to promote awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. It is on 22 April. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson (D-Wisconsin) as an environmental teach-in in 1970 and is celebrated in many countries every year. The first Earth Day was in 1970.
Nearly 20 million Americans participated in the first Earth Day celebration on April 22, 1970. In the decades since, Earth Day has spread across the globe with thousands of events in more than 180 countries. From its beginning, the event influenced environmental politics, triggering such national legislation as the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. “Earth Day is a commitment to make life better, not just bigger and faster,” the organizers of the first celebration wrote in their manifesto. “It is a day to re-examine the ethic of individual progress at mankind’s expense.”
I didn’t participate in any Earth Day events; since every day is earth day I feel like I’m doing my part by
- using refillable water containers instead of throw away plastics
- using canvas bags for groceries (this one was made easier since they now charge for bags at grocery stores in my county)
- ‘Im learning about composting
- I unplug stuff not in use (my cell and laptop)
- I’m on public transportation (don’t have a car so this is a no brainer lol)
What are you doing this earth day? Oh and I have some friends who are sharing their Earth Day plans, check out the links below
