Because Every Mother Matters

Lex & I have a newborn, 1 week old, named Lincoln. He is amazing. God's miracles are amazing. My sister Steffany has founded an organization called Because Every Mother Matters to help moms in Africa.

Sure, I'll post about Lincoln's birth & all that. But these mothers matter, too. They have stories too. They have newborns that are just as precious as Lincoln. Here's how you can help.

Read Steffany's post below

We have no trinkets to sell. We have nothing that you can purchase to give to your mothers or women of importance in your life on Mother's Day. All we have is a vision. A vision of a holistic maternity and infant development center to be built half way around the a village probably not big enough to be on a map. Because- it is not okay that 1 in 11 women in E.Africa dies due to pregnancy related causes. What do we need? Simply-We need money. What can we offer this Mother's Day? Hope. And the assurance that 100% of your donations go towards building the clinic. There are 3 fridays left until Mother's day. We are asking 3 things. 1. Every friday donate $10 that is a total of $30. 2. On fri. make this your status and provide a link or address to donate. 3.Please let your mom, your friend, your wife, your daughter know that THEY MATTER!

You can donate by clicking on the cool image below. Please memo BEMM.

Today is the Day!!!
Time to spread the word.
Let the women in your life know how much you love them.

$10 Friday.
Spread it.
Share it.
Give it!
