Nobody knows how to generally characterise modern moms. Every mom is different, special, but something tells us that they can no longer be seen through traditional stereotype of the Polish Mother (Matka Polka).
Modern mothers love their children but, at the same time, they remember about themselves, about their ambitions and passions – according to popular saying that happy kids are those who have happy moms. Young mothers are especially active online – it made us thinking, is that possible that a new type of Polish Mother is being born?
We are witnessing the moment when the people, freed from the dimensions’ barriers, create new behaviors and new methods of solving social problems. One of them is the powerful social movement of e-volunteering, linking positive initiatives in the Internet. Convinced about the power of e-volunteering, we want to support it, promote good practices, prevent obstacles hindering it’s development. To achieve this, we have launched the www.e-wolontariat.pl portal. It is a non-profit endeavor, engaging individuals, institutions, companies and non-governmental organizations. We want this portal to become a platform linking the leaders and organizers with e-volunteers and to strengthen e-volunteering in Poland. We are still looking for the answer to a number of questions: What is e-volunteering? What forms does it take? What is the scale of this movement? We want toarouse a discussion on that.
