In October 2012, our friends Asha Dornfest and Christine Koh traveled to Ethiopia with the ONE Campaign as members of the #ONEmoms delegation. Here are their posts about their time at Women at Risk: Asha: “Bridging Worlds With Handmade Scarves…” // Christine: “A Day of Hope”.
They had just finished writing Minimalist Parenting, in which they offer their prescription for the problem of wrestling with abundance in modern parenting… “During this trip, the irony of witnessing Ethiopian families wrestling with scarcity did not escape us. We’ve been committed to spreading awareness about Ethiopian initiatives ever since.”
These generous ladies have decided that proceeds from sales in October from their book are going to Women at Risk! This is a HUGE deal guys… they’re donating 100% of royalties on copies sold through this special fundraising link to Mocha Club, and we’re giving 100% to Women At Risk! And even better, their publisher is matching their donation on the first 100 copies sold through this fundraiser. [Read more]
In Minimalist Parenting, Christine & Asha offer a fresh approach to navigating all of the conflicting background noise of a parenting climate that feeds on more expert advice, more gear, more fear about competition and safety, and more choices to make about education, nutrition, even entertainment. (which results in overwhelmed, confused parents and overscheduled, over-parented kids.) They show how to tune into your family’s unique values & priorities and confidently identify the activities, stuff, information, and people that truly merit space in your life. Filled with parents’ personal stories, readers will come away with a unique plan for a simpler life! (source)
