Through social media and sites like Twitter, Facebook, and business related forums I have met some wonderful and inspiring women. The support and encouragement that comes from these relationships is more than I could have realized prior to becoming an active member in several of these online social outlets.
Going forward for the next several weeks, each Wednesday is going to be Wonderful Women Wednesday. I am going to introduce some of these inspiring, fun, supportive women to you.
I have written about her before but feel she deserves another mention for all the great work she is doing. Cooper Monroe is the co-founder of "Mom Sends the Message", a national public service campaign aimed at educating moms on the dangers of distracted driving. I first got introduced to “Mom Sends the Message” by an email asking people become ambassadors for the cause. I was happy to participate and wrote a blog post. The work Cooper and her partner Emily McKhann were doing was so inspiring and important they made me want to do more to help. Since then I have worked at a local level to help bring awareness to the campaign. Cooper and Emily deserve a huge round of applause. They are working hard on brining to light the dangers distracted driving presents on our roads. The "Mom Sends the Message" website, www.momsmsg.com profiles victims’ stories, outlines new and pending laws and highlights media coverage distracted driving receives.
Jump on board, visit momsmsg.com, take the pledge to not drive while distracted and get inspired to help make your community a safer one.
