What kind of world do you want for your family in 2030?
That's the question the United Nations Foundation and Johnson & Johnson are posing at this year's Moms +SocialGood event, an annual one-day conference in New York City where celebrities, advocates, political leaders and mothers gather in person and via social media to discuss the problems -- and solutions -- for moms and families around the globe.
Held in the New York Times Center on May 1, the event opens with an address from actress Jennifer Garner and Save the Children CEO Carolyn Miles, and comprises panels on topics ranging from universal safe childbirth to plugged in parenting. Speakers will include U.S. Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, photographer Anne Geddes and philanthropist Jackie Bezos, among others.
The event also kicks off the third annual Global Moms Relay, a charity blog series hosted on The Huffington Post and BabyCenter from May 1 to June 19. The series will feature the voices of more than 20 well-known contributors, kicking off today with a piece from Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette. Each time a blog from the series is shared on social media, Johnson & Johnson will donate $1 (up to $300,000) to one of four nonprofits supporting mothers and children around the world.
