Welcome to a new year and 365 (or now 357!) more days to show appreciation for moms around the world. As 2013 begins, it’s time to look back at what we’ve accomplished at the Million Moms Fund to date.
Thanks to you, we’ve raised $126,204 for mothers and children, from Swaziland to Afghanistan. That’s $126,204 toward the global elimination of maternal and neonatal tetanus. It’s $126,204 for struggling mothers like Mbali Mkhatjwa, a 23-year-old, HIV-positive, mother of two in Swaziland. It’s $126,204 to train midwives and clinical workers who can save more of the 177,000 women who die each year in pregnancy and childbirth in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Want to get 2013 off to a great start? Make a resolution to help women and children survive and thrive. It’s as simple as heading to the Million Moms Challenge page and choosing a way to take action. Or “like” us on Facebook and spread the word to your family and friends. Or follow us on Twitter at @AMillionMoms to learn more about our work supporting healthy moms and babies.
Thank you for supporting the Million Moms Fund. 2012 was an incredible year. Here’s to saving, supporting, and nurturing more moms in 2013!
You don’t have to be a mom to help a mom. You just have to be one in a million.
