“Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.” – Mother Teresa

Meet 2011’s Mom on a Mission, Tamara Rubin of Portland, OR

Watching Tamara’s video makes me feel so motivated and energized – and reminds me that ANYONE can make a difference – so EVERYONE should! Every small action you make in your own community has ripple effects, and you never know what great things you can accomplish until you get started. If you know an extraordinary “Mom on a Mission” – take a minute to honor her by nominating her today. And I’d love it if you’d share her story here in the comments too!
