Women are the caretakers of the world. Yet global HIV and AIDS and extreme poverty can seem overwhelming. Even if these things break our mother’s hearts, how is a busy, full-time mom to get engaged and make a difference? Global Soccer Mom shows that everyday moms care deeply about these issues and long to engage the world in a meaningful way. Busy women everywhere will resonate with Shayne’s story as a mother of three who learned she could make a difference on the global level. Follow Shayne’s journey—sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant and learn how you can get involved too. Activist Shayne Moore knows the challenge of managing a home and the desire to make a difference for those who are suffering. As a full-time mom, she has journeyed from an insular suburban world into the arena of global advocacy, where she’s worked alongside media superstars to effect change. Using the power of story, she inspires women everywhere to start right where they are and make a real difference. Moore’s work has taken her far beyond her comfortable suburban home. She’s travelled to international summits and was featured in a commercial with Julia Roberts, George Clooney, and Matt Damon. She’s been interviewed by CNN, NBC, and The Wall Street Journal, and featured in a photo shoot in Vanity Fair’s “Africa” issue. You CAN make a difference. Real change starts right where you are.
