The idea for YourMomCares #ymc originated in 2014 when the mothers of Jonah Hill and Beanie Feldstein, Adam Levine, and Alicia Keys came together to advocate for children in a public service announcement about access to health care. Today YourMomCares has grown into a powerful movement, uniting the mothers of influencers in the arts, pop culture, social media, sports and sciences. As a group our ability to draw attention to the most important causes has immeasurable power to serve our country’s kids. We are moms who care.
YourMomCares #ymc is a group of celebrity and influencers’ moms who go where the need is greatest to help America’s most underserved kids, with an emphasis on supporting pediatric mental wellness. As “mobile moms” we carefully vet organizations to ensure our participation and donations go to the children who need it most.
Our First Mobile Mission
Our first “mobile mission” took us to New York, where we partnered with Children’s Health Fund (CHF) and presented them with a $50,000 grant to support work in the field of children’s mental wellness. We are extremely proud that our partnership with CHF will help bring state of the art healthcare to America’s most under supported kids.
Children’s Health Fund is committed to ensuring that America’s most disadvantaged children receive the highest quality health care. Through multiple platforms, the organization works to break down the barriers that have consistently kept sick children sick. Children’s Health Fund works to expand access to comprehensive primary care, reduce health barriers to learning, respond to the needs of children impacted by major public health crises and disasters, and improve the health and wellbeing of children through advocacy and public education efforts.
Children’s Health Fund was founded 30 years ago, when Singer/songwriter Paul Simon and Irwin Redlener, MD toured a shelter for homeless families in New York City. In response to the desperate conditions they witnessed, they launched the first “big blue bus” – a specially designed pediatric mobile clinic. Since that day, Children’s Health Fund and their network of clinics has served over 350,000 children.
YourMomCares’ most recent donation to Children’s Health Fund was featured on NY1, the 24 hour news channel in New York. Check out the online article here:

YourMomCares is a volunteer-run organization. All donations will support our future “mobile missions.” As our movement continues to expand we’re eager to broaden our reach by working with other organizations in many cities across the country.
