While COVID-19 has created whole new levels of fatigue for all, mothers around the world have taken on even more. In addition to being a driving force juggling the pandemic dynamics of the household – owning “time” whether it’s playtime, mealtime, school time, naptime, bedtime or anytime in between, there are a remarkable number of women who are also the primary or only breadwinners in 40% of U.S. households with kids under 18. And, in the U.S. today, there are nearly 13.6 million single moms raising over 21 million children.
So, with National Singles Day approaching, November 11, and Thanksgiving quick on its heels, we have such gratitude and celebrate all moms, and want to shine a light on others through a spotlight story series leading into National Singles Day recognizing, supporting and championing all that you do. We know it takes a village, and sometimes that village is a village of one. We see you, and we thank you for all that you do. And, we know others recognize just how much you do, according to a recent survey we fielded 81% of moms agree that being a single mom is tougher than working a 40-hour work week.
Visit us daily as we appreciate, celebrate and shine a light on the single moms in our community!
