The Charmed Mom

Maria Carmela "Icar" Maghirang

Icar is a wife to her church's music ministry bassist and currently a stay at home mom to a 21-month old daughter. She has previously worked in the customer service industry and later on became an online English tutor. She loves interacting with people and engaging in special causes and activities. 

She is a breastfeeding advocate and was proud that she has breastfed her daughter for 19 whole months, not much to some but it is indeed a big accomplishment to her as a mom. She is now based in San Jose, CA but is still a pure Filipino at heart. In fact, she wholeheartedly supports and promotes an organic product brand in the Philippines that is made and sourced locally and is helping farmers earn a living.

For Icar, life is made up of small pleasures and happiness is made up of tiny successes. She dreams of a simple life and believes that everyday is always a new day-to be thankful for, to make a difference and be a blessing to others. .

On why she keeps her blog :
"Social media is indeed a powerful tool to get involved and influence the participation of other people.
I feel equipped now that I am part of this great cause which can help change lives around the world. I was never wrong when I joined Moms for Social Good, because of this, my little voice can be heard and my presence online can be a way to inform others. It is also an effective way to help build awareness about causes that need utmost attention which can certainly make a significant difference.
It is the little things that matter, that add up in the end and make the big things possible."
