Here, There and Everywhere

9,000 A Day

Dear Gabriel,

My name is Amy Brenneman and I am an actress and a CARE supporter. But, before anything else, I am a mother.

That’s why I was so shocked when I heard this horrifying statistic: Every day, close to 1,000 pregnant and new moms and more than 8,000 infants younger than one month old will die. That means 9,000 mothers and newborns tragically lost their lives last Sunday – Mother’s Day – and every day since.

As a mom, I can’t imagine the pain of losing your child before you even have a chance to watch her grow. And, I can only wonder about the life-long devastation a child experiences when he loses his mom so early in life.

You can help bring attention to this tragic situation today by sharing your voice on CARE’s interactive petition. CARE is collecting 9,000 signatures for the 9,000 moms and babies who die every day.

Possibly the most heartbreaking fact of all is almost every one of these deaths is preventable. We just need the political will and resources to save lives, which is why your voice is so important.

Tell the world why you are speaking out on behalf of the 9,000 mothers and newborns who are silenced every day because the world is failing to help!

Thank you for joining me in this important endeavor. I look forward to reading your message soon.

Sincerely,

Amy
