Recently I was onhand as Christy Turlington Burns joined to celebrate the launch sale of Hatch by twobirds Collection on Gilt Children where a portion of proceeds will go to Christy’s charity, Every Mother Counts.
I have to admit that I was in attendance at the event because I am passionate about maternal and child health (as a mother-baby nurse by trade) and wholly support Christy’s charity and was excited to meet her in person but I was completely blown away by the Hatch by twobirds Collection, especially the dress that Christy wore that night. Christy showed an excerpt from her debut documentary, No Woman No Cry followed by a Q&A. Christy’s documentary and discussion were extremely touching and women in the room were soon asking what they could do to help. I picked up some simple ways to get involved and the first thing I did when I got home was look up how to donate my old cellphone to Hope Phones. Every Mother Counts is an advocacy and mobilization campaign to increase support for maternal and child health. Gilt Children, Hatch and Gilt City are happy to help raise awareness and funds for this campaign.
Gilt Children is exclusively launching the Hatch Collection before it is available anywhere else. The sale kicked off yesterday at 12 PM ET and runs until September 30th. Gilt members will get 20% off and a portion of the proceeds will go to Christy’s charity, Every Mother Counts.
