This Organization Goes to 11

Parents_action_button1_1 The brilliant mind that brought us This is Spinal Tap has made a massive–and welcome–leap to the world of non-profits. Parents Action for Children is Rob Reiner’s very cool parent advocacy group. The website features the standard fare on topics like schools, safety, wellness, and children and the media; but what really differentiates it from Babycenter and the like is the action section. Here they lay out facts on the issues you care most about, then tell you exactly what you can do to make things better. Whether you¬πre concerned about violent videogames, up in arms about junk food in schools, or royally pissed off over budget cuts for Headstart, you’ll find a simple way to get off your butt and do something about it. Without actually getting off your butt.
