The women above are among the forces and advocates behind a new collaboration between Bono’s ONE organization and SMITH. From now until Mother’s Day, we’re helping ONE kick off a new campaign, Women ONE2ONE, by lending our joy of six to “Six Words on Why Moms Matter.” ONE’s simple, beautiful idea: Raise awareness of the importance of mothers and the struggles many are facing every day, at home and abroad. Your simple, beautiful part: Write six words in honor of your own mother and/or any mom your admire around the globe. Head over to the site to get started.
