Making Opportunities With YML - YUMMommy

Making Opportunities With YML

As a young mom, I know how hard it is to find great opportunities.  We are often stereotyped as being undependable or unreliable and inexperienced because we have kids.  So, 9 times out of 10 doors are shut in our faces before we can even prove that we have skills or something great to offer.  That is why I am so excited to be involved with The Young Mommy Life brand.  My friend Tara started The Young Mommy Life to uncover the truth about motherhood and offer a place for other young moms to have voice about their experiences.


I am happy that I have been supporting YML for a while and have been able to see it grow.  Tara is not just a blogger but she's now a published author, as well as a public speaker, advocate and freelancer.  And now she has taken on the role the of being an Opportunity Creator with the YML Scholarship. Two young college moms will have the opportunity to win a YML Scholarship to help lower the cost of school books and other related supplies.
Tara's belief is that by helping these moms get through college, we will "feel that ripple effect through her kids, her extended family, her friends."

Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a village to make this world a better place by helping others to improve themselves.  And one of the greatest ways we can improve ourselves is with education.  I hope that you all will join me in supporting Tara's mission and cause.  Our goal is raise at least $500 by August 11th to be split between two winners.  Just think about it, that donation could possibly be an investment in your future and your family's if you are selected as one of the scholarship winners.  You can donate whatever it is that you can afford using the lovely ChipIn widget below:

I would like to sweeten deal and offer anyone who has a business or just wants to get the word out about their website a FREE 125x125 sidebar ad with the donation of $10 to $19.  The ad will remain on my website for the remainder of this year.  Donate $20 or more and I'll throw in a sponsored post with links, photos and periodic sponsored tweets!! And don't forget to help by spreading the the word.  Feel free to retweet this post or share on Facebook.
