Today you can make a difference by joining a grassroots organisation called ONE. You’ve probably heard of them on the TV and radio. Here’s a little introductory post about why I believe this is something we should be part of with our children. Part of Raising a Playful Tot is about sharing and showing our passions; leading by example and walking the walk of our values. After all, children learn what we do not what we say.
Getting involved is easier than you think. We can’t help everyone. We can’t give to everyone.
Infact ONE isn’t asking for our money at all but our voice.
Today is the start of a new initiative: Thrive.
Here’s what you can do
Join the ONE Mums today with ONE.org
Let’s see what we can do together as one voice. See you at the Twitter Party.
Today I’ve written a personal post about an organisation that doesn’t ask for our money just our voice. Pop on over to The voice of #ONEMums to find out more and come back here tomorrow to hear about the Tuesday Twitter Party.

What are The Mads awards?
The MAD Blog Awards celebrate great British families and their blogs. It’s open to those living in the UK or expats. Last year I was an expat but this year I’m here!
One of the things I love about the Internet is interacting with like-minded fun people all over the world. Being a military family we’ve had our fair share of moving and upheavals so having online friends has really been amazing.
We also a family that lives in more than one culture. Like lots of military families we just get to making friends and we’re off again. Making new friends in a new area is no different from when you were 5 in school.
There are a whole heap of categories to nominate your favourite blogs.( 15 actually)
Since collating 100 playful blogs in one place for the Raising Playful Tots index I’ve had the fun task of looking at 100s of play blogs. During the show I’ve had the opportunity to speak to a few of these amazing people, listed below, and share their ideas with more people who like them are hungry for quality fun play activities to do with their children.
So here is my entirely subjective list…… there are lots more but I could only choose one for each category.
Here are ones I would love you to check out – because they offer so much in way of inspiration, encouragement, simplicity and the owners are just cool!These should be on your list anyway to read, visit and comment. Drop them a line, if you can.
You can vote for them yourself, like I did in the Mads. I’m sure from wherever you are in the world
