Why I Noonday

by Holly on August 16, 2016

Have you seen Poverty, Inc.?

The whole documentary is an eye-opening look at the “business” of giving to poor countries. It is an important film to watch.

There’s an interesting segment on orphans, and how many of them end up in orphanages. Most aren’t orphans at all- many of them have at least one living parent who loves them and even visits them in the orphanage. They are there because the parents can’t provide basic needs for their beloved children, such as food and clothing, mostly because they don’t have jobs. It is a whole cycle of system of poverty and it is heartbreaking.

This is the main reason why I am a Noonday Ambassador and why Noonday is relevant on Integrative Mom.  Noonday provides jobs for artisans in developing countries so they are able to earn a living and keep the children they so love.

If you don’t know about Noonday, please watch this video for an introduction to what we are all about. (Watch for me- I’m wearing a tight fitting black dress that gloriously showcases my last baby bump!)

Will watch this tonight! (One of my attempts at “effective habits” — putting things on a To Do list, even just for tonight, so that I can stay somewhat focused on the current task…though clearly I’ve strayed a bit….). Sounds like a fantastic organization. Thank you for letting us know about it and for your work on it.

Thank you Rachel! To Do lists are amazing- and if you write something down you are 75% more likely to get it down (I made that stat up, but know I read something similar recently!) My husband recently came across a note he wrote to himself with the idea of creating a program to present at a conference in LA- he wrote the note 4 years ago and doesn’t remember writing it…but he found it while he was on the plane to LA to present the very program his note was about! Felt very twilight zone for sure.
