Alumna coordinates moms Web site

Shadra Bruce, AU class of 2005, launched a website for moms last year with her sister Tiana Green in an effort to provide support, information, and a few minutes of welcome distraction during a mom's busy day.

Not knowing what would come of the new adventure, Shadra and Tiana pooled all of their experience — 10 kids, two divorces, single parenting, stepparenting, twins, teens, and toddlers — into helping moms know that they are not alone.

Along the way they have welcomed some amazing Mom Contributors to share different perspectives about the many roles moms play. The response has been extraordinary, they say, and the Web site has grown from a small blog into a major undertaking that is truly having an impact on people's lives.

IGotMomPower will celebrate its first anniversary in May, and in honor of that landmark occasion, the IGotMomPower Team is planning to honor one special mom with the first annual IGotMomPower Mom of the Year Award. Nominations are currently being accepted, as are donations from sponsors, who will be featured on the site throughout the months of April and May.

For more information on how to nominate your favorite mom, please view the complete details of the contest here. To learn how you or your company can donate an item to the gift basket, please contact Shadra at
