The Global Moms Relay reached the finish line on June 16, raising $500,000 for families around the world through a digital campaign supported by Johnson & Johnson and the United Nations Foundation. Parents, community leaders, experts and influencers joined together to share a collective vision for a healthier world, and to show that small actions can lead to big changes.

What do you wish were true for every family, everywhere?

The Global Moms Relay reached the finish line on June 16, raising $500,000 for families around the world through a digital campaign supported by Johnson & Johnson and the United Nations Foundation. Parents, community leaders, experts and influencers joined together to share a collective vision for a healthier world, and to show that small actions can lead to big changes.

Every time a Global Moms Relay post was shared through social networks, Johnson & Johnson donated $1 to five life-saving campaigns (up to $500,000): Shot@Life, Girl Up, UNFPA, U.S. Fund for UNICEF and Nothing but Nets. The relay was also supported by the Donate a Photo app. Johnson & Johnson gave $1 for each upload of a photo for Girl Up, Nothing But Nets, and U.S. Fund for UNICEF, up to $50,000 for each campaign. 

Inspired by the UN Every Woman, Every Child initiative, this annual online action relay is brought to you as an extension of the Global Moms Challenge by the United Nations Foundation and Johnson & Johnson, with support from BabyCenter, Global Citizen, Fatherly and Charity Miles, who believe that together, we can improve the lives of families everywhere.

  • Building well-being and leadership skills in nursing isn’t a new concept, but surprisingly, it hasn’t traditionally been a formal component of nursing education. As a result, many nurses enter the profession unprepared for what’s ahead. Beginning this winter, a new educational curriculum from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing will pilot a competency-based approach to developing the next generation of nurses at 10 nursing colleges nationwide, focused on empowering students with the skills needed to prioritize self-care, healthy behaviors and well-being in the healthcare work environment.
