http://blondemomblog.com/ Here, from her blog, a description of who she is....
I'm Jamie, a 40-something working mom seeking a few moments of Zen and zinfandel between soccer practice and supper. My former beach bartender husband foundedMouseCalls Computer Services here in Nashville. We have two daughters, two dogs, and too much laundry. You'll find more dog hair than DIY at my house. Kick off your shoes and come on in!
The past days have been a new experience for Jamie. She has traveled to Africa with Rene Cook, founder of Every Girls Counts, they were honored to be guests at an amazing conference for teenage girls from the Kibera slum. The Jitambue program, funded by Passion Partners, was started a decade ago by Swahiba Youth Networks in only one high school reaching just 11 girls. The program curriculum emphasizes positive reproductive health and self-worth and has grown today to impact more than 700 girls at 13 schools in the slum. The conference was held on the grounds of a church just within Kibera, where around one million people live in extreme poverty the likes of which most of us will never witness. 90 percent of the girls in the project live in single-parent households. Many of them have lost a parent to HIV or AIDS. None of them have lost hope.
These words are taken from her blog...She is one person who took it upon herself to try to make a difference. Why not go visit Jamie and read about her life changing week? It just shows that one person can do a lot to bring about change. We don't all have to travel to Africa...we can start right in our own family and neighborhood. it all begins with just one person.
