In Appreciation of Fathers: 3 Great Ways to Celebrate Dad!

By Global Moms Challenge

June 11, 2013

Father’s Day is this Sunday in the United States. Here are three organizations we love who are celebrating Dads! You can join them and honor the men in your life with gifts that really make a difference around the world.

White Ribbon Alliance

white ribbon allianceWhite Ribbon Alliance members around the world are grassroots advocates uniting to push for change so that all women and newborns in every country have the life-saving healthcare. The white ribbon symbol represents those many women and girls around the world who have not survived complications from pregnancy and childbirth. A donation to honor a “most amazing Dad” in your life helps make sure another woman is educated and empowered to make good decisions for herself and her family.

Join the White Ribbon Alliance and donate here to make a difference!

Mothers2Mothers

mothers2mothers (m2m) knows that without fathers, there wouldn’t be mothers!  In fact, fathers can do so much to help their partners stay healthy and keep their babies free of HIV. One father in Uganda, whose wife found out she was HIV positive while pregnant, shares his story here.

Thanks to donors like you, m2m is able to reach families with essential health education to keep mothers and babies healthy. Unfortunately, many more families do not receive the lifesaving HIV treatment and support they need. This Father’s Day make a donation to m2m to help increase our reach. Just $15 will pay the salary of a new “Mentor Father” for one week—helping us encourage more fathers to support their partners’ medical care and improving the health of entire families.

We can’t leave Dads out of the process. Help mothers2mothers connect with more fathers in order to insure that women get the treatment and support they need.

I’m Born To _______ !

Their “imbornto” campaign celebrates this potential, helping each baby be born strong and healthy. When you shop at imbornto.com (or anywhere the “imbornto” seal is displayed) up until  Father’s Day, you’ll be supporting the March of Dimes and helping moms have healthy, full-term babies
