Ready, set, go! The Global Mom Relay has officially kicked off! We think moms are the glue that holds families (and humanity) together. Healthy families promote healthy communities — and so many moms are passionate about helping their own families and families around the world achieve health and happiness.
That’s why the United Nations Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, The Huffington Post, BabyCenter and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation launched the Global Mom Relay of moms and their friends from around the world sharing stories of motherhood to inspire action to help improve the lives of mothers and children everywhere.
The best part is, everyone can be a part of this historic online relay! For every person who shares a relay post or donates $5 or more as part of the relay, a $5 donation (up to $8,000 per day for 60 days to a maximum of $500,000) will be donated by Johnson & Johnson and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to one of four initiatives that are helping women and children lead healthy and happy lives. These initiatives are Girl Up, The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action (MAMA) and Shot at Life.
First up is Girl Up! From now through March 21, Join us for the first leg of the relay and help unlock donations that will help us advocate for girls around the world.
