This week we are honoring midwives and all they do to keep moms and newborns healthy and safe.  On average a midwife in Africa cares for 500 mothers and delivers 100 babies every year. That's an enormous contribution!

During our visits in Ethiopia and Kenya we’ve had the privilege to meet many incredible midwives.  The love and dedication they bring to their work inspired us to join with the top African non-profit, Amref Health Africa, to help end the massive shortage of midwives across the continent.

We invest your purchases and donations toward Amref's Stand Up for African Mothers campaign - which is raising $9 million over the next two years in order to train 8,000 midwives who will serve millions more women.
