Creative Actions for 1,000 Days Champions

There are many great ways to educate your community and your members of Congress about maternal and child nutrition in the 1,000-day window.

In Your Church

  • Give a minute-for-mission in Sunday morning services.
  • Lead a program at your Wednesday night supper, or in your small group or adult-education session.
  • Write an article for your church newsletter.

In Your Community

  • Hold a "global baby shower," with or without a baby.
  • Keep a jar of conversation-starting facts on your desk at work. You can find facts for the jar on pages 8 and 9 of our full kit.
  • Write a letter to the editor of your local paper.

On Social Media

  • Follow Women of Faith for 1,000 Days on Facebook and repost your favorite photos or articles.
  • Write an entry in your blog about 1,000 Days. Write for the Bread blog about your work as a champion for nutrition.
  • Tweet using the #1000days and #BreadActs hashtags to share stories about 1,000 Days. Follow those hashtags and retweet your favorite tweets.
  • Tweet (or Facebook message) your members of Congress with your favorite stories and pictures. Let them know why nutrition is important to you as a constituent.

With Your Members of Congress

  • Engage your members in social media campaigns.
  • Send jars filled with facts to your members of Congress.
  • Letters to the editor that are published in your local newspaper also reach your members of Congress.
  • Develop a scrapbook about nutrition. Include pictures and facts about the importance of nutrition and cost-effective ways to improve it.
