Niri traded the rat race in Engineering for her rug rats and returned to her passion for writing at MommyNiri.com after she became a mom. She’s coupled her work in blogging to further several charitable projects and events, such as putting an end teacher-funded classrooms, supporting Rwanda Path2Peace and Heart 4 Haiti, building playgrounds with Kaboom, hosting events to support Autism, and working on the End Child Hunger campaign. In December 2010, she launched a Mommy Niri Cares holiday drive to provide items to children born into poverty. That spawned a newly launched site MommyNiriCares.com, which focuses on using social media for social good. Chat with Mommy Niri on Twitter @mommyniri.
