Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
With two out of three children in the United States raised by a single mom and over 300 million children worldwide, single moms are more commonplace. In fact, they have become the new modern family. Yet so many of these moms have little or no help or support and face the daily challenges of provider, teacher, caregiver, and role model seemingly all alone. That is until now. One single mom dedicated to making a difference is Jessica Rector, founder of The Single Mom Movement http://www.thesinglemommovement.com. Rector understands firsthand the daily struggles and challenges of raising a happy, healthy family and knows what a difference the right support can achieve.
Rector is hosting a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo http://igg.me/at/TheSingleMomMovement with a goal of raising $50,000. This crowdfunding campaign increases awareness for single moms and the challenges faced by these remarkable women. It also offers single moms education, empowerment, and emotional support through The Single Mom Movement Community. The funding will assist in implementing innovative programs in hospitals and corporations that, in turn, give back to the entire community.
However, the crowdfunding campaign is not just for single moms. It is a place where everyone can get involved to support a worthwhile cause. For every single mom, daughter, sister, friend or co-worker, when we better support these women, businesses thrive, the economy rises, and children are empowered. Everyone wins. Be a change maker to help single moms everywhere.
Rector, a respected author with two undergraduate degrees and an MBA, states “Our Single Mom Movement Community offers the support I wish I had. It has already made a huge difference for single moms everywhere, and now, we plan to do more. Most know a single mom, but are unaware of all the challenges they face. This campaign will provide the support network these women need and so much more.”
In addition to raising awareness the crowdfunding campaign focuses on the following initiatives:
- The Single Mom Movement Community. This provides opportunities for single moms to get together, grow, and support one another. Every $100.00 raised goes to sponsoring a single mom to become part of this community.
- Educationally valuable retreats and mentoring weekends. Single moms rarely take time for themselves. This project is creating programs and getaways including destinations like Disney World and Italy, where single mothers can connect with like-minded women in similar circumstances while returning to their families refreshed and empowered.
- Hospital Programs for unsupported single women. This initiative reaches single moms right at the beginning of the single-mom journey; pregnancy. The goal is to raise money to conduct a pilot program to implement into hospitals with monthly workshops on self-care, self-confidence, money management, and career development in addition to so much more.
- Corporate Programs. By acknowledging the specific needs of single mothers, such as flexible scheduling, corporations gain a phenomenally dedicated, driven workforce. Working with corporations to develop a tailor-made program can increase health, wellness, productivity, and energy of every employee.
These incentives can become a reality with help from those who support this campaign. The project has designed numerous ways to contribute to their crowdfunding campaigns and valuable perks at all different levels. Stop by to learn more http://igg.me/at/TheSingleMomMovement.
