Every 2 Minutes

Every 2 minutes, a woman somewhere in the world dies from complications of pregnancy or childbirth.

I serve as a board member for Every Mother Counts, a non-profit founded by Christy Turlington Burns to save women’s lives by providing women around the world with access to healthcare during pregnancy and childbirth.  In honor of Mother’s Day and the moms in both our customer and our designer/artist communities, I thought I would share with you a trip I took with Christy and the rest of the Every Mother Counts board to Haiti.

From what I’ve gleaned from my grandma’s generation, it used to be a tradition to gift a fresh floral corsage for Mother’s Day.
