Partnership with Every Mother Counts

We are very excited to announce that we will be partnering with Every Mother Counts for the release of the newest addition to the Mini Museum Series, What do you see? (available to pre-order August 15th). For each book that is purchased 5% of that profit will be donated to Every Mother Counts, a non-profit organization helping to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for mothers everywhere. EMC funds projects and organizations all over the world to help create safer conditions for women to give birth. The organization was started by Christy Turlington Burns, initially as an advocacy campaign that aligned with her documentary No Woman, No Cry about the health issues facing women all over the world. EMC has since become a major non-profit, investing in training, transportation, and equipment from sub-Saharan African countries to communities in New York City.

Their projects center around improving the conditions of transportation, education, and supplies for communities in need. EMC recognizes that barriers to these critical resources make proper health care and safety nearly impossible for some women, and contribute to the alarming statistics of maternal death and fatal complications. By supporting innovative, on the ground programs that are created by the community in order to serve the needs of that community, EMC provides life saving aid to women in developing countries and the US alike.

We're thrilled to donate to such an important cause and to help support such an amazing non-profit organization.
