Every Mother Counts is a campaign founded by Christy Turlington Burns to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world.Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide.
Every two minutes, a woman around the world dies from complications due to pregnancy or childbirth, creating a rippling effect that devastates children, families, and communities. But 90% of those deaths are preventable—with our help.
5% of the net sales from all Olivine Atelier products will be donated to Every Mother Counts. These funds will go toward improving the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide.
The video below is the first 17 minutes of Christy Turlington Burns' incredible movie No Woman No Cry. I cried multiple times while watching this movie, but at the same time was empowered knowing that I could do something to help. I highly suggest watching the entire movie if you get the chance, it is available here on Amazon
for rental or download.
