I just wanted to share an interesting gift option for Mother's Day, or anytime. You can donate $10 (provides 5 birth kits), or for about $3 in materials assemble your own birth kit to be sent to Papua New Guinea via a YWAM medical ship. 1 in 7 mothers in Papua New Guinea die in childbirth and when you read the contents of the kit it's startling to realize that a sheet of plastic, bar of soap, pair of gloves, razor blade and string, and a few gauze squares can mean the difference between life and death. For the cost of a latte with a friend you can provide 5 women with a chance at life. Wow. Here's the link themommyhoodmemos.blogspot.com or use the Bloggers for Birth kits button on the side bar. Happy Mom's day!
