What is your single mom manifesto?

by mssinglemama on December 22, 2011


Remember the single mom manifesto project?

I sent three of these out to over 150 of you and not one as returned.

I’m so sad about that, but I understand knowing that we are all busy and it seemed like a far fetch that we could pull it off. Or maybe they were lost in the mail…

Either way, I am still in love with the idea of gathering all of your declarations of your principles, the foundations you hold dear as a single mother – and then making them public. Sharing your story for others. What drives you? What guides you? The manifesto is all about you and what you believe.

The definition of Manifesto from Wikipedia – a manifesto is a public declaration of principles and intentions, often political in nature. Manifestos relating to religious belief are generally referred to as creeds. Manifestos may also be life stance-related.

I wrote mine in the books and sent it off. I had photos and everything. If you want to contribute your manifesto… write yours, scan it digitally (you can use the Pro Scanner app on your smart phone) and then upload it to my Facebook page as a photo – if you prefer to be more anonymous – email yours to mssinglemama@gmail.com with the subject line MANIFESTO. Everyone who submits one will then receive a password for a FREE Ms. Single Mama Uncensored eBook!

Sound good? Leave comments with questions if you have any. And Merry Christmas!!! Love you my Mamas.

I’ve often wondered what happened with this project. I signed up for it and never heard another word. bummer.

Will you post yours for us? I signed up for it and never got it. Would have been fun to complete!


Anna December 25, 2011 at 5:48 pm

I love this idea, and it is new to me. It has truly been the comforting, encouraging words of other single mamas that has gotten me through my darkest hours. This project sounds wonderful.

Too bad it didn’t work out it was a great idea!

Love this idea! I say you give it another go. And I agree with a previous comment – would love to see yours or at least part of yours as an example. I need to give this some thought. But my initial reaction is that mine will be a manifestA. 🙂

Can I have one, please? I would love to be a part of this. I have had a VERY similar idea for the last few years and no time to make it happen. Would love to be a part of yours.

Would enjoy being part of this project. A sample would be wonderful to push me beyond where I currently am. A due date would also guarantee it gets on my radar. Great idea!

Long time reader first time commenter here … In Japan!

I would also love to do this. It sounds great!! I’m sure our core values are prolly very similar, even though we are so far away.

Do you still have these??


J March 11, 2012 at 7:17 pm

I’d like to read it too.

Anything to help me understand relationships with single moms further.



Rosie June 5, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Is this still going on? I’d like to read some and write my own too!
