About

CoolMomsCare is is the online community for parents and their kids who want to make a difference. We’ll help you encourage your kids to change the world around them by helping the environment, other people and themselves.

Being a parent sometime can seem like it leaves no time to do anything else, but changing the world is something a lot of us want to do.

We know time is the most valuable commodity of the 21st century, and that goes double for parents. So, we keep our posts short and sweet — we call them “5 Minutes of Caring.” When we look around, we start to find we have little blocks of time just waiting to be snatched up — and we want to offer helpful and doable tips and ideas to fill those spaces.

Ultimately, we are parents here to share our ways we believe you can change the world with your family. Please share your experiences, thoughts, stories, feelings, failures, strength, fears, and hopes with us! We are here to help encourage you on this journey towards changing the world.
