A World without Moms: Happy Mother’s Day



Here is the winning video from “Save A life”:   “Moms Matter. Make it Obvious,” a project that asked people to tap into the power of social media and viral marketing to challenge people to creatively show the world that maternal health and childbirth is hardly safer today than it was 100 years ago.


We just learned that YouTube is going to be featuring the winning video on its homepage on Mother’s Day! And at least one penny for each view during the entire month of May is going to benefit Christy Turlington’s organization, Every Mother Countsan advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase education and support for maternal and child health.

Please help us spread the word about this amazing challenge, the video, and make sure you take a look at the winning entries.  They are truly amazing.  

Please look at the winning tweets, too.  Yours truly had 2 of the top tweets.  :)

And you can send this hysterical video out to all your mama friends from Momsrising. It’s a movie trailer for a film about—- YOU!  The World’s Greatest Mom.  Yes, you.  You’ve got to check it out, it’s laugh out loud funny (especially the Toy Story comment).  Enjoy!

    I can't even imagine how will I live my life in such a way that my Mom won't exist anymore. She takes care of us. Every second.
