Guest Campaigns: January 2019

Rosie the Riveter

Here at MNHQ, we think it makes sense to use the not-inconsiderable might of the Mumsnet collective for the greater good. That's why we regularly exchange links and public support with charities and pressure groups in areas Mumsnetters are interested in, such as special needs provision, child poverty, childcare, parenting, breastfeeding, maternity care and relationship support.

AfriKids – Time to shine

Janu-raising to give more children their time to shine
Every child has the right to an education that will unlock their potential and give them their time to shine. Yet in Ghana poverty is forcing thousands of children out of school. Together we can give more children their time to shine.

This January, as many children return to school, we’re asking them to support the education of other children who are less fortunate. Do you know a school who could take part in Janu-raising as part of AfriKids’ Time to Shine appeal*?

*All public donations made to Time to Shine before 4 March will be doubled by the UK government.

The Untold Story – Alcoholism, a family disease

Al-Anon is launching a new campaign “The Untold Story” to encourage more people living with problem drinkers to get help and find their local Al-Anon meeting.

The campaign aims to highlight that although the problems associated with alcoholism are widely recognised, the friends and family of problem drinkers often live every day with uncertainty, deceit, financial insecurity and in some cases violence or emotional and physical abuse and may need support themselves – this is the untold story of alcoholism.
