I came across this and wanted to share…A unique twist on giving a Mother’s Day Gift.
Bloggers for Birth Kits helps to reduce maternal and infant mortality in developing nations. For some reason this cause spoke to me, maybe because I am a couple of weeks from having our son. Before yesterday I had never heard of this before…yesterday I got an email from babble.com, in the email was a link to this article, The Mother Pucker Project: Bloggers Create a Better Mother’s Day. I clicked on the link and read the article. In the article was a link to Adriel’s blog which has a page titled Bloggers for Birth Kits. In a simple description on Adriel’s site she explains it as this:
Bloggers for Birth Kits is a simple initiative to rally bloggers to reach out and help mamas in Papua New Guinea. These women may seem very different to you… but they are mothers with the same heart – mothers who desire to deliver healthy, thriving babies just as we do. (The idea was born out of this post: Four Healthy Mamas, Four Healthy Babies.)
Two statistics from her site:
Every minute a woman dies of complications related to pregnancy and childbirth.
In rural Papua New Guinea 1 in 7 women die in childbirth and that rate is simply unacceptable.
So this Mother’s Day donate to help save other moms! $10 creates 5 kits. You can mail you kit or donate online by following the link on the Bloggers for Birth Kits page. Last year in the Mother’s Day Drive they raised over 2000 kits!
