October 30, 2018 Giving Tuesday

At age two, Daxx never holds still. He is always on the go, always exploring and learning. Sometimes he pulls books off the shelves and flips through them, looking at all the pictures—even though he can’t read any of the words yet. When he goes to the park with his dad, he stops every few feet to examine a leaf, bug or something else he sees on the ground. And his favorite word lately is “Why?”.

But last month, Daxx’s dad lost his job. To make their limited savings last longer, Daxx’s dad now only buys the cheapest food he can find—which doesn’t usually include proteins or fresh fruits and vegetables. Research says not getting sufficient nutrition could affect Daxx’s cognitive development, decreasing his curiosity and his ability to absorb new information. At MOM, we say together we can change that. Join us on Giving Tuesday—and help kids like Daxx get the nutrition they need to continue to explore and learn.

#GivingTuesday. A moment of action. A lifetime of change.
