Rifle Moms for Moms Celebrates 1st Anniversary with Evening News Interview



Rifle Moms for Moms owner Leanne Worton celebrated the site’s 1 Year Anniversary with an evening news interview on ABC’s KREX Channel 5 News. The segment highlighted  the site’s open forums to discuss anything from social planning to tips on child care. Rifle mom Kristine Llacuna uses the site to help her balance between her roles as mother and business owner.

Llacuna says, “One of the biggest things with being a business mom, is there are other business moms on there. It’s been nice talking to people about how hard it is to run a business and be a mom, sometimes it gets a little hectic.”

Leanne Worton started as a member of nearby Carbondale Moms for Moms in January of 2011.  As a mother and active community member she loved the site so much that four months later she launched a Moms for Moms site in her own rural community of Rifle, CO in April 2011.

“Coming here with a 2 year old, it was really tough to find other moms who were in the same place that I was. Rifle is a rural area and it can be hard to make friends as a mom, says Worton.

Now one year later Rifle Moms for Moms has 221 members who have discussed 222 Forum topics, posted 775 Events, shared 335 photos, and created 24 niche Groups. Congratulations Leanne, you are building a stronger community by engaging the moms in Rifle!

Moms for Moms Communities sites are launching in small mountain towns across North America. To learn how to launch your community site visit www.MomsforMomsCommunities.com

Building Community One Year at a Time. Grand Valley Moms for Moms earns media attention at one year anniversary milestone.



Lindsay Ellis and Grand Valley Moms for Moms celebrated a wildly successful first year on Wednesday and deemed a spotlight on ABC’s KJCT Channel 8 Evening News. In the past local mother, Lindsay Ellis had tried her own hand at blogging about things to do with kids in the Grand Valley, but struggled to reach an audience. One year ago she discovered Moms for Moms Communities™ and learned of the opportunity to run her own social network for mothers. In just 365 days, 579 mothers joined the site, discussed 190 topics on the Forum, and created 34 niche interest Groups.

GrandValleyMomsforMoms.com launched on February 1, 2011 and has been called a “superhighway of local mom information” and become the “go to local community resource for mothers” in the Grand Valley.

Flavored Milk in Schools? Bend Moms for Moms members earn media attention for school milk discussion



A recent discussion on Bend Moms for Moms garnered the attention of the local news media and put several moms in the spotlight on an issue that is near and dear to their heart: the prevalence of flavored milk in the Bend La Pine School District. One simple post from a concerned mother encouraging others to write the school board, PTAs and nutrition services should they be interested in joining a fight to switch to all-white milk, led to the most popular discussion on the site in its one-year history. Moms on both sides of the debate joined in on the honest, and sometimes controversial discussion, and several have started a group to actively petition the school board.

“This is what it’s all about,” said Sarah Daily, Bend Moms for Moms owner. “Encouraging open and honest debate about the issues we as mothers care about and are invested in for our children.

Lindsay Ellis from Grand Valley Moms for Moms teams up to lead diaper drive



Imagine having to clean out and reuse a soiled diaper on your baby because your family has to choose between placing food on the table or buying diapers.

Learning that mothers in her own community are faced with that decision, Lindsay Ellis, owner of Grand Valley Moms for Moms, was moved to action. In the Moms for Moms Communities spirit of inspiring mothers to engage in their local community, Lindsay promoted a Diaper Drive through her social network to stock their local food bank with diapers for families in need.

I immediately knew that I had to get Grand Valley Moms for Moms involved.  We are after all,  “Moms for Moms,” here to support each other. I felt the need to rally the support of my members in this cause.
