Being pregnant is a wonderful and scary time in any woman’s life. Not only do you need to worry about your own health but also the health of the new life you are carrying in your womb.
I was fortunate that at the time I was pregnant with both my children that we had decent health insurance. For many of women around the world health insurance is a luxury they simply can’t afford. For other women, especially in impoverished countries, they not only lack health care but also education about information about how to stay healthy while pregnant and long after their child is born.
Stella & Dot, a global fashion accessories brand and rapidly growing social selling company, is proud announces the global re-launch of their Stella & Dot Foundation and partnership with Every Mother Counts.
The Stella & Dot Foundation was created in 2010 by CEO and Founder Jessica Herrin. It’s part of the company’s mission – to give women the means to style their own lives.
“We are committed to making a difference in women’s lives. It’s important for us to extend that mission to impact the lives of women and their families, at home and around the world through the Stella & Dot Foundation,” says Herrin.
To-date, the Stella & Dot Foundation has raised over $1.6 million towards causes important to our community.
Model, actress and mother Christy Turlington Burns is the campaigns spokesperson.
“Every Mother Counts’ is excited to partner with Stella & Dot’s mission driven community to help us achieve our goal to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. We know we can’t do this work alone and are always reassured that there are others who want to contribute in meaningful ways. Through this partnership, we will be able to educate many more about the global maternal healthcare challenges and also raise funds to support programs that improve access to quality maternity care that can prevent unnecessary deaths at birth.” – Christy Turlington Burns, Founder Every Mother Counts.
To help raise funds and awareness for this campaign Stella & Dot has introduced a beautiful bracelet called the Enlighten Bracelet ($39). All net proceeds from the sale of this lovely bracelet will go to support Every Mother Counts to help inform, engage, and mobilizes new audiences to take action to improve the health and well being of girls and women worldwide.
The Enlighten Bracelet is very unique. It has a strap that resembles a belt or a watch strap. It’s adjustable to fit any size wrist. I have the bracelet and I have a thick wrist and I am able to wear the bracelet with no problem. My daughter, who has a smaller wrist, can wear it too. She just has to adjust it to fit her wrist.
The bracelet is made out of a Poppy Orange colored leather band. There is a gold-plated brass bar on one side of the bracelet (the part that goes on top of your wrist). It’s simple yet very eye catching. The gold-plated brass gives it a bit of elegance and the Poppy Orange leather strap adds a bit of fun.
I tried to take my own photos but they didn’t really capture the details too well.
Inside the bracelet, embossed on the leather strap, are the words MERE – SOEUR – FILLE – MOTHER – SISTER – DAUGHTER – MAMA – SCHWESTER – TOCHTER which translates into Mother, Sister, Daughter in French, English and German. You cannot see the words when you are wearing the bracelet. You can only read them when the bracelet is off your wrist.
This is a beautiful bracelet that would make a wonderful gift for that special lady in your life, a friend, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt or even yourself. The funds go towards a great cause and in exchange you have a beautiful bracelet that can be worn on a night out on the town or running errands.
