Today is "Giving Tuesday," a day designated to benefit organizations that help the greater good -- and a great way to end on a high note of giving back after all the shelling out on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.
In honor of the day and the Lamaze mission to advance safe and healthy pregnancy, birth and early parenting, I wanted to provide a short list of global organizations that are doing amazing things to help improve the care for mothers/parents and babies. As you ponder where to donate today, I hope you will consider one of the deserving organizations below.
Nonprofit Organizations that Help Improve the Lives of Mothers, Parents, and Babies
"We envision a world where all women have the opportunity to enter motherhood and not only survive, but thrive."
Every Mother Counts works to achieve quality, respectful, and equitable maternity care for all by giving grants and working with partners and thought leaders to increase awareness and mobilize communities to take action.
"Since 1983, we have been the only national organization dedicated solely to improving the health and wellness of our nation’s 21 million Black women and girls – physically, emotionally and financially."
Black Women's Health Imperative's mission is to lead the effort to solve the most pressing health issues that affect Black women and girls in the United States through bold new programs and advocating for health-promoting policies.
