Moms Making A Difference

Credit: OC Mommies

I love reading and learning about Moms who are out making a difference to make our communities stronger and a better place for our children.

Red Tricycle and Blue Shield of California have teamed up to spotlight local moms that are on a mission to promote health and wellness in their communities.  These ladies have inspired others to promote healthy, balanced and active lives—all the while balancing the needs of her own family.  (Not easy, we know!)

Highlights include profiles of women like Nicole Dawes, the Founder and CEO of Late July Organic Snacks, who remains committed to providing healthy, organic snack foods to our kids and Stephanie and Beth (the moms behind OC Mommies) who put together a fundraising event called Trike 41, where over 100 toddlers rode tricycles to fundraise $10,000 for other kids their age fighting cancer.

But we all know that there are many more moms who fly under the radar who are doing meaningful things for their community and Blue Shield of California wants to find them!

Know a mom like this? Are you a Mom making a difference? There are two ways that you can help Blue Shield of California recognize these moms.

1.  Read about Moms who Make a Difference on Red Tricycle at and become inspired.
2.  Nominate yourself  or a friend in the We Shield Moms contest. Enter for a chance  to win $5,000 grant to donate to the charity of their choice, a $500 shopping spree and a family membership to local zoo or museum.

As a bonus to say thanks to all the moms that are out there doing great things for the community, Red Tricycle is hosting a series of free playdates in Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.  To read the lineup head here.
