Because Every Mother Matters!

A few of you have heard me talk about my passion for the people of Uganda. Last Christmas I was blessed enough to be apart of a campaign to bring water, food and medical care to a small island in partnership with Orphan Children Rescue.
I have the opportunity again to work with them on another project. Brandi and I have teamed up to start a national campaign called Because Every Mother Matters! The goal is to deliver birthing kits to thousands of women who lack even the basic necessities to deliver their babies. We believe with access to simple tools to aid in the birthing process that it will help bring down the overly absurd mortality rate.
This is something I am extremely excited about. I feel so privileged to be a part of this.
