Safe Motherhood

Mother-Earth-by-Ryan-Paul-Simmons

I was flipping through Bazaar magazine tonight and read a wonderful article about the work that Christy Turlington Burns and others are doing to bring attention to, and improve, maternal health all over the world. Her documentary, No Woman, No Cry, will air on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network in May. If I have my statistics correct one woman dies approximately every 4 minutes during childbirth somewhere in the world. There is so much to learn and so much we can all do to help. Here are some of the organizations highlighted in the article that are worth checking out: The White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, Every Mother Counts, and LifeWrap.org. Also go on over to charitybuzz and bid on this one of a kind painting (the one featured here), Mother Earth by Ryan Paul Simmons or one of these gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous gowns by Vera Wang, Catherine Malandrino, Marchesa, Donna Karan New York, and Diane von Furstenberg. The auctions close on January 31st so go place your bid now!
