Are You a Blogger on a Mission? Enter Our New Contest!

The blogosphere has spoken, and we’ve listened.

You want to make a difference. You want to get involved. And we’re here to help.

Healthy Child Healthy World is proud to announce its 2014 Blogger of the Year Contest! After working with an amazing Healthy Child Blogger Network of 500+ bloggers, we’ve decided it’s time to put you in the spotlight. We want to honor bloggers who are helping to create awareness and spread Healthy Child’s mission of empowering parents to take action and protect children from toxic chemicals.

In line with Healthy Child’s mission, the 2014 contest theme is “Creating a Baby-Safe World” to highlight the education and activism work that bloggers are doing to make our world safer for future generations.

From our Parent Ambassador Lori Alper, whose petition pressured Tide into removing the potential carcinogen 1,4-dioxane from laundry detergents, to noted food blogger Bettina Siegel, our community proves that bloggers can harness the power of online media to create real change.

While Healthy Child does have a Mom on a Mission program honoring moms who dedicated their lives to pushing the envelope around environmental health issues, we wanted to create an award that singles out the positive impact bloggers can have through their educational content and activism. The 2014 Blogger of the Year contest is also open to everyone — whether you’re a mom, a dad, or a concerned citizen.

Why bloggers?  In our current online ecosystem, bloggers hold enormous sway over parents and consumers.

  • 74% of Moms have purchased products as a result of promotion mention in a blog
  • 65% of Moms learn about a product of service through social media
  • 66% view social networks as a source of information

It’s high time to honor bloggers who are fighting for change, and helping families learn what they can do to live healthier lives.
