Michelle Obama’s call for every American to maintain an ongoing commitment with their community has spurred a new generation of women who want to do more than just talk the talk. Enter SecondLadies.com , a new online community inspired by Mrs. Obama’s call to action. Taking cues from the issues near and dear to the First Lady’s heart, the website says its objectives are to support military families, address the challenges of work-family balance, feed America's hungry, and participate in national service and volunteerism across a wide range of worthy causes.
“I am asking you to join me in this movement. Become one of the First Lady's Foot Soldiers. Put your boots (or stilettos) on the ground for a good cause,” writes Drew Dixon Williams, Second Ladies founder.
Second Ladies offers a volunteer matching service to pair individuals up with an existing charity in support of Michelle Obama’s causes and has partnered with Operation Homefront, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, support and morale to American troops and their families.
