Great Swag + Bragging Rights: Nominate for Childfree Person of the Year!

On August 1, 1973, the non-profit organization, National Organization for Non-Parents (NON), celebrated Non-Parents Day by awarding a Female and Male National Non-Parent of the Year. Later known as the National Alliance for Optional Parenthood (NAOP), it existed from 1972-1982 with a mission to “educate the public on non-parenthood as a valid lifestyle option.”

40 years later, a group of childfree writers and bloggers – including w{n}hab!’s own Dr. Amy & Lance – resurrected the “Day,” now calling it International Childfree Day! Each year, the group recognizes a Childfree Woman and Man of the Year and bestows on them an incredible bounty of childfree swag (including w{n}hab!’s sweet – and sassy – Childfree Manifesto mug!).

Seriously. Check this out:

This could be YOURS!

Win the mug along with a whole bunch of other awesome childfree documentaries and books by nominating yourself (or your very own personal childfree hero) for Childfree Person of the Year. Send your nominations to Laura Carroll at by July 22.

Nomination requirements and details can be found here. In a nutshell, nominees must have no children by choice, be people with whom you are personally or professionally acquainted (including yourself!), and should address the questions outlined on the nominations page – all in 500 words (or fewer).

On August 1, celebrate the day by doing whatever the heck you want – hey, you’re childfree! – and learn more about it at the International Childfree Day website.
