The Motherload® is all about raising women up and supporting one another, without judgment. We are celebrating our third birthday on Sunday 3rd June and we don’t want any fancy presents or champagne – we just want YOU to Love Another Mother.
We’ve been on a mission for the last three years to get mums to forget their differences – whether it’s feeding choices, parenting styles, or differing opinions – and to come together, help each other out, acknowledge that being a mum is HARD and know that when we have each other’s backs things are SO much better! We’ve seen some incredible things happen in The Motherload® as a result of our ethos and what better way to celebrate three years of MOLO love than to spread a little kindness?
You can make your promise to #LoveAnotherMother, by doing two simple things:
1. Make a heart-hands photo and share it on social media
We want as many mums as possible to be kinder and less judgmental – to Love Another Mother – on social media. On Sunday 3rd June, make a heart with your hands, take a selfie (or get one of your kids to take a photo of you) and share it on social media with #LoveAnotherMother. Don’t forget to tag us on @themotherloadhq on Instagram and Twitter or on @wearethemotherload on our Facebook page and we will share as many as possible. We’ll also be running a thread in The Motherload® Facebook Group where you can join in and celebrate our birthday with us!
2. Make that pledge a reality by doing a random act of kindness for a fellow mum.
It’s completely up to you what you do for your random act of kindness, and how you do it. You could tell a mum you know just how amazing they really are, hand a bunch of tulips to a mum you pass by on the street, or leave an anonymous gift for a mum in a baby changing room (Click here to find out how MOLO moderator Ren Benson did this all around York), or you could offer a struggling mum a helping hand or tell her she rocks and should join The Motherload®!
We’ve seen so many amazing random acts of kindness in The Motherload®, including special gifts sent to premature babies, a single mum being sent Mother’s Day gifts by a fellow member, and one time, a member in The Netherlands was able to deliver goodies to another MOLO’s friend who was in hospital there – amazing!
Let’s make things better for mums online and in real life, by promising to #LoveAnotherMother.
Love Kate and Alison,
Founder and Editor of The Motherload®
