Doin’ a lil good

My blog originated because of my involvement with a national non-profit, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC).  I had been a member of a local chapter, Bluegrass Junior Woman’s Club(BJWC) for several years.  I was selected by GFWC to become a Champion with the United Nations Foundation Shot@Life campaign, when I realized my most efficient charitable work was lending my voice through advocacy. A Southern Mother and Blog of a Bluegrass Belle started because I wanted to talk about how my southern upbringing influenced me to help others.

I am a Johnson & Johnson Social Influencer for Social Good and I enjoy helping promote their philanthropic endeavors. In January 2015, I will begin working as a volunteer Champion Leader with the United Nations Foundation Shot@Life campaign. Most recently I attended the ONE Girls and Women AYA Summit in Washington, D.C. I have also attended the Shot@Life Champion Summit two years, the Mom+Social, and the Mashable Social Good Summit.


Whether you are lobbying on Capitol Hill or telling a friend about your favorite nonprofit, you are working to create positive change. Everyone should find a cause that they are passionate about and give them your time, money, or your voice.  I have listed just a few of my favorite non-profit organizations.  If there is a nonprofit that you think I should cover on my blog, please send me an email.
