Today, I join with thousands of amazing, caring people in a worldwide project to honor the mothers of the world, and to raise funds to support four amazing “Mamas.”
To Mama With Love was originally launched in May 2010 by Epic Change, the innovative US nonprofit behind TweetsGiving, one of the first events to harness Twitter for social good, and the TwitterKids of Tanzania, a classroom of remarkable seventh-graders who blog & tweet from their village near Arusha.
To Mama With Love is a collaborative online art project that honors moms across the globe and raises funds to invest in remarkable women who are transforming our world. Scheduled for May 3-8, 2011, participants create socially sharable “heartspaces” that include words, videos, photos & investments in honor of mamas they love.
The “heartspace” video and written tribute to our Mom, Connie Farver, on behalf of myself, my brother Patrick and sister Cindy, may be viewed here.
About Michael Farver
Ex-print media publisher & art/design guru turned passionate social activist; semi-pro chef, writer, photographer, artist, trained handler of championship Dobermans and licensed firearms expert. I split up the hours of my day serving as a spokesperson and advocate for U.S. childhood hunger solutions, as a Dad, as a Husband, and when things get too intense, I travel the country following the latest reincarnation of the Black Crowes. I'm the Immediate Past President of the Board of Florida Impact, the state’s senior legislative public policy advocacy organization, serve on the board of directors of the South Florida Hunger Coalition and Women in Distress of Broward County, am a Trustee and Director of the Farver Foundation, direct a grassroots child hunger nonprofit in South Florida and also lead XS Media Ventures, a multi-media event, promotion, business incubator, new business startup and redevelopment consulting company. I'm into everything from modern art, tiki and pop surrealism to wine collecting to vintage guitars to all things touching, and touched by, technology. For starters.
