Part of my mission with BeautyMama is to bring awareness to organizations that benefit women and children around the world. Sometimes, I really believe that world peace, hunger, opposition and religious and spiritual freedom could all be achieved if women everywhere were safe and healthy, enabled and educated to be bold and beautiful, inside and out.
The magnificent Christy Turlington-Burns founded Every Mother Counts to raise the standards of global maternal health. This fact makes me shiver: every day, in fact every 90 seconds, a mother dies from childbirth complications that can be prevented.
Please join me in supporting Every Mother Counts any way you can. Here is a link to their donation page. Also, the non-profit has partnered with Minted, Jennifer Fisher jewelry, Tracey Anderson: The Pregnancy Project, Oiselle clothing (I own the t-shirts), ErgoBaby and Roberta Freyman on exclusive products. Proceeds from sales help educate and support women to reduce the maternal mortality rate worldwide.
