2. Check out the new Every Mother Counts campaign. This organization is tied to supermodel-turned-filmmaker, activist and mom Christy Turlington Burns (who yes, is still gorgeous) and her new documentary No Woman, No Cry. They have a ton of things you can do to help, whether it’s your time, your money, or simply your voice you have to give.3.

We’re long-time fans of this brilliant, beautiful organization and the worldwide support they’ve garnered from women heads of state, captains of industry, and the Hollywood moms we love
