Fundraiser for Every Mother Counts
May 08, 2018 - May 13, 2018
Startling stat: Every two minutes, a woman dies during pregnancy and childbirth. But up to 98 percent of those deaths are preventable. In the days leading up to Mother’ Day, I’m raising funds for Every Mother Counts, an organization dedicated to the safety and support of moms everywhere.
Some examples of EMC’s work: In the U.S., where 1 in 5 women of reproductive age lacks health insurance, they are providing prenatal care for low-income, at-risk mothers, through support of Commonsense Childbirth. In India, with a grant for Nazdeek, they are training activists and lawyers to document maternal-health-rights violations and secure judgements mandating better health care. In Nepal, they have partnered with One Heart World-Wide to provide solar electricity, essential medicines, and blankets and hats for mothers and babies. And much more.
Please consider making a donation to EMC and their great cause: https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/rasikaboice/everymothercounts. And by donating, you’ll also be entering a giveaway for a complimentary custom drawing. I’ll be randomly selecting two winners on Mother’s Day.
Many thanks for your support—and thanks for sharing this with anyone who might want to donate, too!
