Be on the Cover of Working Mother Magazine!

This is an interesting opportunity!

Working Mother magazine is looking for a mom for our November cover— and we need your help! She should live near the tri-state area and have younger kids (under the age of 10). She will be on the cover of our magazine with her child(ren) and featured in a story that will be seen by 2 million readers. The photo shoot in New York City will occur in July.

We are looking for a cost-conscious mom who works creatively to make ends meet. We’re especially interested in non-executive moms who have been hard hit by the recession (pay cut, spouse was laid off, etc).

If you know of a mom who fills this bill, please have her fill out the info below and send back to covermom@bonniercorp.com along with a photo of herself and her kids. Please forward this message along to all your friends and family. This is a great opportunity to recognize a hard-working real mom who deserves our cheer.

Household income (choose one): under $50,000; under $75,000; under $100,000 What’s your biggest struggle during the recession:

Deadline for submissions is Monday, June 8th. Thank you for your help, and please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions.
