Kristen Bell is lending her starpower to the “Bump Moms: Movers + Makers” awards, an event that will also be donating 92 gallons of breastmilk to help feed premature babies.
The special charity event will also be showcasing the beauty of postpartum bodies, and charities that help underprivileged children and families. The women being honored serve as an inspiration that creates positive change in our society.
Co-hosted by Kristen Bell, a mom of two who is currently starring in the Showtime series House of Lies, The Bump Moms: Movers + Makers Awards luncheon will take place today at the Millwick in Los Angeles to honor moms who are making a difference in the lives of others.
In addition to honoring inspiring moms at the awards luncheon, The Bump, through its corporate entity, XO Group Inc., is officially joining forces with I Am That Girl.
This non-profit, which Kristen Bell is a proud ambassador of, is a community, support system, and movement inspiring girls to love, express, and be who they are. With this affiliation, XO Group will further its mission of empowering and supporting women, at an even earlier age, as they excel as leaders of their communities. XO Group’s support will be used to create a female empowerment and leadership curriculum that will be given to the local chapters of I Am That Girl, and also provide sponsorship of hundreds of girls within the organization – an act XO Group encourages others to do as well. The Bump Moms: Movers + Makers awards luncheon will feature members of I Am That Girl who will share their stories of how the non-profit has helped them build confidence and become a leader in their communities.
“Being a mom is the most difficult role I’ll never get paid to do, and yet it will be my proudest legacy,” said Kristen Bell. “When The Bump approached me to help honor fellow moms who have gone above and beyond their normal mom duties to positively change the lives of others, as well as young girls that are leaders in their communities, I was humbled to be a part of this event.”
“The Bump is the go-to resource for millions of women going through pregnancy and parenthood, and every day we’re there to provide guidance, reassurance and inspiration—that means to shine a spotlight on stories about incredible moms,” said Julia Wang, head of digital content for The Bump. “We’re thrilled to have Kristen Bell cohost this event to help us honor future leaders and today’s moms who not only make an impact on their own families, but also change the lives of women and children all over the world.”
“As a community of women, we MUST invest in girls and double down to change what isn’t working in the world. The girls in the I AM THAT GIRL community are the future moms, makers, politicians, CEO’s, and leaders of our world – and they need support today,” said Emily Greener, cofounder and CEO of I Am That Girl. “We believe in the idea of lifting while you climb, and we are so grateful XO Group and its community of women have the same heart for inspiring girls to be the best versions of who they are, and who they want to be.”
