Inspiring moms can nab $5,000 for charity


Parenting website debuted its "Mominations" initiative today to celebrate 100 of the most inspiring mothers who have changed the world for the better - and encouraging people nationwide to “mominate” moms in their communities who are doing likewise.

An expert panel will evaluate all nominees and select 10 moms to receive $5,000 donated to the causes or charities of their choice. Panelists include award-winning filmmaker Rory Kennedy, model and activist Christy Turlington, and media giant Lauren Zalaznik, as well as more than a dozen other experts in their fields.

For its 100 Moms Who Are Changing the World list, Babble chose women who changed the very notion of motherhood.

You can nominate the moms in your life at Nominate-a-Mom.. Nominations will be voted on by the viewing public through Sept. 6, and 10 winners will be selected by the judges Sept. 12.
