How One Photo Made a Difference to Moms and Babies.
This weekend, we had the great pleasure, together with ABC’s Good Morning America, famed photographer Anne Geddes, Disney Baby and the United Nations Foundation to unveil the gorgeous portrait of Allison Dearstyne and baby Clara, winners of our 'Imagine Me & You' photo contest.
How can a portrait of a pregnant belly with a sweet message written on it make a difference? And how can a photo shoot with Anne Geddes all the way in Australia, do something for mothers and babies in Kenya or India or Haiti?
The answer is you. You came by the thousands, drawn by a contest with a unique prize, to the Million Moms Challenge. You’ve stayed with us to learn about the problems mothers and babies face in developing countries around the world. You’ve expanded your knowledge and shared our stories and articles with your own families and friends.
You have given your hearts and you have given your hard earned money. Your donations since the Million Moms Challenge launched only last September have helped do so much. Here’s just a small sample of your accomplishments:
Thank you for reading, learning, sharing and donating to keep moms and babies everywhere healthy and happy.
