Introducing video sponsor by T. Rowe Price: Wherein The LTYMers FREAK OUT about saving for college

July 1, 2014

It was a peaceful afternoon in our LTYM director/producer Facebook group. Until, that is, the subject of saving for college arose. These show-runners boldly challenge themselves and support each other to bring Listen to Your Mother to their cities while balancing busy lives, and they can handle everything the production season throws their way. Seriously, they’ve made it through bats in the theater, tornado warning lockdowns and surprise blizzards in May. Who knew what  would finally prompt a freakout was the idea of planning to pay for college? I was doing some calculations… and thinking it wasn’t adding up right. My oldest will be in 8th grade. I thought we had more time! Where did the time go? What are we going to do? – Stephanie Where did the time go is right, Stephanie! You can’t see the look on my face because I’m in a fetal position on the floor. I have […]

May 28, 2014

As this busy LTYM season wraps, and the busy school year wraps, everyone is anticipating summer FUN. LTYM has found a brand new partner for summer fun with Luvs Experienced Moms. I’ve had a blast working with a group of humor bloggers as one of Luvs’ “Experienced Moms” in the past, and now LTYM gets to join the fun. At the center of it all: ABC’s family comedy “Bet On Your Baby” returns for a second season, and the Luvs Experienced Moms will be live-tweeting each episode starting Saturday, May 31st.

LTYM 2014 Raises Over $26,000 for Local Causes!!

May 22, 2014

A vital component to Listen To Your Mother’s mission is our support of women and families in need. Each local team selects a non-profit to partner with during the season, building awareness for the cause to both our real life and online audiences, and donating a portion of our ticket proceeds as well as fund-raising for that cause day of show. LTYM is elated that our 32 shows raised over $26,000 this season, that will go directly to our local causes in 2014:   In addition to funds raised, many cities include cause representatives as part of their show–with some cities bringing cause reps with them for media opportunities, and others offering causes a call to action from the podium.   LTYM, as a project, has now raised over $50,000 to date, for causes that support women and families.Thank you for helping LTYM 2014 Give Motherhood a Microphone, and so much more.
