The stats are daunting: “Every two minutes, a woman dies from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth. That’s 800 women every day,” Christy Turlington, Founder of Every Mother Counts noted. As a nonprofit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for women worldwide, Every Mother Counts recently teamed up with TOMS, the company renowned for their one-for-one business model to offer a limited edition collection featuring a backpack and tote.
With every bag purchased, TOMS will help facilitate a safe birth for a mother-to-be in need. In addition, with each purchase, $5 will go to support Every Mother Counts’ global advocacy efforts to improve maternal health.
Through their efforts, these companies are working together to raise awareness and provide the infrastructure needed improve the future of maternal health. Over 98% of these deaths are preventable, according to WHO, 2014 AND UNHCR, 2013. So do your part, and shop to support maternal health.
