National Moms Nite Out

NMNO_logoNational Mom’s Nite Out is the first nationally organized celebration of motherhood intended to bring together today’s moms, physically and virtually. Mom’s Nite Out will unites over 150 social media groups, companies, local playgroups, mommy bloggers and mother social networks in giving moms a well deserved night off.

The evening will consist of local events held across the country, as well as mom-organized parties and virtual activities. To allow moms everywhere to join in on the fun, mothers will be invited to throw their own mom’s nite out event by downloading party ideas and elements from The National Mom’s Nite Out website. The night of the event moms can join in on the fun through online chats and tweet-ups.

Mocha Moms Inc

Mocha_logoThe West Contra Costa County Mocha Moms is a group of multi-cultural mothers who want to make time for themselves while still supporting their families. While many of our members have eliminated employment altogether, others work part-time, flex-time, night shifts, have home-based businesses, consult or freelance from home or have chosen alternative, less demanding career paths so that they are more available to their families.

Founded in August 2004, the West Contra Costa Mocha Moms group (WCCMM) supports a diverse group of families with like values. WCCMM supports the seven pillars of the Mocha Moms platform: Non-Exclusivity, Community Activism, Support for Work-at-Home mothers, Non-partisanship, Strong Commitment to Marriage, Self-Care, and the Education of our Children. Our goal is to help moms better care for themselves, their families, and each other. We do this though our Babysitting Cooperative, “Moms Only” Outings, Support Groups, Play Groups and Family Events.

WCCMM is also open to mothers who have chosen to work outside the home and to all mothers who are raising multi-cultural children and children of color. We believe this expansion of the traditional Mocha Moms structure provides additional support for mothers who share our philosophy but who are also faced with the extra challenge of balancing a work life outside the home. We believe that mothers who are raising multi-cultural children and children of color are also part of the sisterhood we have formed.

Mocha Moms serves as an advocate for multi-cultural mothers and encourages the spirit of community activism within its membership. Mocha Moms, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Mocha Moms, Inc. does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, socio-economic level, education, or religion. Anyone who supports the purpose of Mocha Moms, Inc. is welcome to join.
