It is very hard for me to pick just one to highlight as an example of the inspiration these mothers give because they all truly inspire. Go moms! However, let's talk about Helen MacDonnell, one of the 8 super moms that made it into the final round. As the 3rd youngest of a family of 9, she decided to be a SAHM after obtaining her law degree. Tragedy hit her family when her bipolar brother committed suicide during a bout of depression. it was then she realized how little support those with mental health had. Now she had a goal, she was going to change how this was. An annual kitchen party where guests were encouraged to share stories, support, and donate began. This eventually led to the formation of the annual fundraiser known as Women and Wellness, hosted across Canada, with events being held from Halifax to Vancouver. Suitably, her donation will be going to the Canadian Mental Health Association-Moncton.
