This week Maci Bookout got her own MTV show, Being Maci — A Teen Mom Special.
Maci has said the shows are more than just typical television drama.
“Since the inception of ’16 & Pregnant’ and ‘Teen Mom’, the teen pregnancy rate in the U.S. has dropped significantly and Maci feels this is no coincidence, but that the stories and struggles of four normal teenage mothers being shared with the world has had a direct impact on those numbers,” Maci said on her official website.
“In addition to appearing on ’16 & Pregnant’ and ‘Teen Mom’, Maci works to educate young people on teen pregnancy prevention through public speaking engagements and personal appearances.”
Maci Bookout has branched out into other charity endeavors. On her site she is raising money for the Kidney Foundation, having collected more than $3,000 so far.
