By engaging a million Americans with millions of mothers in the developing world around issues that directly impact pregnancy, childbirth and children's health, the Million Moms Challenge will raise awareness and funds to help women and children everywhere survive and thrive. The Million Moms Challenge is sponsored in part by ABC News, the UN Foundation, BabyCenter and Johnson & Johnson, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Did you know that every year, nearly 8 million kids die before they turn 5, mostly from preventable causes? Or that every 90 seconds, a woman dies during pregnancy or child birth? The Million Moms Challenge is seeking to reverse these terrible statistics by asking American moms (and dads! and everybody!) for help.
The first 100,000 people to register their support for this effort will launch a $100,000 donation to nonprofits helping babies and mothers the world over. Are you up for the challenge? Join now.
