Achieving gender equality is no mean feat, and efforts to make sure that the world is a fair and equal place for both genders will have to go on for a long time. As it is with all good things, gender equality is a change that will have to start from home and move outwards, which is what BlogAdda and Ariel attempted with the #ShareTheLoad campaign. Young and impressionable minds are the best bet when it comes to seeding change, an idea that was central to this activity which asked bloggers to write about how to take the message of #ShareTheLoad to the next generation by sharing the best ways in which to instill values of gender equality in households in children’s minds. The activity highlighted some crucial points regarding household chores and stereotypes surrounding them. And now it’s time to announce the winners of the Ariel #ShareTheLoad activity!

Motherhood is another dimension to a woman. The joy of being a mother is a divine one and changes a woman’s life completely and forever. There are so many life changing and cherishing experiences during pregnancy, that she is hardly interested in what’s happening around in the world. During pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through a lot of changes. Women today no longer shy away from being upfront in taking care of their health needs. From regular consultations, to absorbing helpful information from all corners to ensure the child has the best even before the birth, women have shed all inhibitions. That is what the women bloggers talked about aptly in our Mother’s Day Activity with Bio Oil.
We never realize how much we can do for the environment, unless we take some action. It can be preserving our forests, tree plantation activities, judicious use of natural resources or sustainable industrialization that doesn’t harm our ecosystem. All this presently is ignored blatantly and we are outrightly disrespecting our Mother Nature.
Therefore in the Shortcut Safaari Weekend Activity, we had bloggers talk about what kind of steps they would take to teach their children to save and nurture Mother Earth. We were amazed to learn that there is so much we can do in our limited time to preserve nature.
The transition from school to college and to your first job is full of milestones and learning experiences. Internship, which is a norm for today’s young professionals is a chance to create one’s professional identity from scratch. There is so much to look forward to and explore, that you don’t even realize when your internship period gets over. In our #MyInternTheory activity, we asked bloggers to relive their internship days. We got many stories of experiences, struggles, learning and getting an idea of how the corporate world works. These blog posts also gave young students some important dos and don’ts about their intern life.

There are some moments in life that will never be forgotten; times spent with dear ones that are etched in our hearts forever. These memories live on, at times serving as rays of hope and at other times bringing smiles to our faces through the tears. These recollections make us strong, deepen our relationships with those we love and are constant reminders of the fact that the best things in life come free to us. Sharing our greatest memories is what we had in mind when we at BlogAdda in association with HDFC Life brought to you the #MemoriesForLife blogging activity. And now it’s time to announce the winners of the activity.
