Organizations share smart financial tips to help during tough economic times


Upper Marlboro, Maryland – Mocha Moms, Inc., the national, non-profit support organization for at-home mothers of color, has joined Kmart in an exciting new partnership to give mothers the financial tools they need to thrive during tough economic times.

“We are thrilled to be able to work with Kmart, a world recognized retail powerhouse, to provide useful tips and ideas for mothers who may need them,” says Dee Dee Jackson, national president of Mocha Moms, Inc. “Our new relationship is a perfect match for our national community service initiative ‘Closing the Gap in Minority Health, Prosperity and Achievement.’”

During February and in honor of Black History Month, Mocha Moms, Inc. and Kmart will be spreading the news about a special “Share the Word” website with specially tailored financial tips and guides to fit every financial lifestyle. The website -
http://www.kmart.com/sharetheword - will also feature an opportunity for customers to test their knowledge of Black History with online trivia challenges.

Kmart joins a growing list of partners and sponsors, including the National Institute of Literacy and America’s Promise, who are helping the thriving mothers’ organization make a difference in communities throughout the country. Last year, chapters set up reading nooks in 50 barbershops and beauty shops as part of Boys Booked on Barbershops, a cutting edge national initiative to foster a love of reading, particularly among African American boys. Chapters also sponsor food and clothing drives, purchase gifts for children of incarcerated parents and adopt families in need. They march for babies, run for breast cancer and jump rope for heart disease. During the school year Mocha Moms tutor and mentor students, host educational and financial forums, and sponsor healthy moms symposiums.

“It is not only important that we support each other during this season of motherhood, it is essential that we do what we can to make sure that the world is a better place for all of our children,” says Jackson.
