Global Poverty Project – Take Action
My friend Holly Pavlika sent along this information about a Twitter Party she is hosting this upcoming Tuesday, May 31st. Please join me in helping her support the fight against maternal mortality issues around the world. All it takes is a signature.
Mom-entumTM and Moms4Moms are joining to support The Global Poverty Project and Care in an initiative to fight maternal mortality issues around the world.
Every mother remembers the day she gave birth. For most, it was a joyful and life changing event. But for some moms, childbirth is more complicated. In fact, every 90 seconds, a mother dies from pregnancy-related causes-and without access to the proper resources, technology and knowledge, this horrific epidemic will continue.
It’s time for moms around the world to leverage the power of social media to stand together in the fight against maternal mortality. With enough signatures, we can get Congress to set aside funding for maternal issues. That’s it. Your voice is all we need. And there is no bigger voice than the sisterhood of motherhood.
