Wednesday Props: Million Mom Challenge

Standard

If you haven’t already heard, ABC News and United Nation Foundation have teamed up to create the Million Mom Challenge–an effort to “build an at least one-million-member-strong movement of Americans committed to helping mothers and children around the world — moms here engaged with and helping moms overseas”. Why? Because they understand the Mommy Network needs to expand. We all need to help each other because every mother and baby deserve to have healthy lives together.

The following needs to change:

“Every 90 seconds, around the world, a woman dies during pregnancy or childbirth, while more than 50 million women this year alone will deliver their babies without the aid of a skilled birth attendant.

Even if mom and baby make it through delivery, 1.5 million newborns die within the first 24 hours of life, while as many as 3.3 million babies die before they turn one month old.”

Let’s change that. Take the challenge here or here.

About cdhoose

I'm a mom to an amazing little girl and have another little one on the way. I live in Upstate New York with my fiance and daughter, 2 big, crazy dogs and a 3-legged cat (who has an attitude). I hate know-it-alls, Lindsay Lohan and socks with holes in them. I always seem to get myself into trouble (which entertains my fiance to no end), but I try hard to be a good parent. Also, I occasionally work on scrapbooking the fifty billion pictures I've taken of my kid. And I like ice cream. The end.
