Another year — off it goes. And ahead of us lies amazing and endless possibilities for using our power for good.

Before we begin 2015 it seems an ideal time to stop an take a look at some of our past Philanthropic Moms. The honor roll from 2014 is made up of amazing, awe-inspiring women who fill our hearts and our spirits with the way in which they bring energy, enthusiasm and care to all they do.

One of the most fortunate aspects of Forty Weeks is working with such admirable women who balance their roles as mothers and their careers with a passion for giving back to their communities. Philanthropy comes in many shapes and forms — and is directed in as many directions as there are women committed to making difference. And, as 2014 comes to a close, I’ve looked back through this list with awe and excitement and wanted to share the buzz and the love.

Well worth noting, Leticia Barr has brought to life a remarkable way to keep all of us focused and mindful as 2015 begins. The idea of a deed a day, not only of the big but especially the small, meaningful gestures — the kindness that we extend to each other — makes all the difference. Join all of us as we step up and bring life to this remarkable concept. For me — I will be buying a bracelet for my kids and my staffers — hoping that that together we will make a real difference in real time!

Here are the fantastic women Forty Weeks highlighted as Philanthropic Moms for 2014:
