It's Almost My Birthday... please consider donating to mothers2mothers. We are currently reaching almost 300,000 clients (pregnant women and new mothers living with HIV) every year, and with an estimated 1.5 million women living with HIV giving birth every year, that's 20% of the global disease burden. Our clients receive counseling and education from our Mentor Mothers--mothers living with HIV, just like them--who support them to live healthy and positive lives, prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV, and be empowered and fight stigma in their communities.

I cannot say enough good things about m2m and about the incredible women I've met who were supported by, and now work for, the organization. Their positivity and their strength is obviously their own, but the way in which mothers2mothers has supported them to become role models for other mothers living with HIV and for their communities is nothing short of inspiring.

If you'd like to give a gift to mothers2mothers, please consider donating through my "Birthday Wish" on Facebook, since I'm trying to raise at least $240 there, or directly through the mothers2mothers website.

If you are unable to donate, please find ways to support HIV prevention, to fight stigma, and to promote healthy and positive living for people living with HIV. Please help make a difference in the life of a mother and child.

Many, many thanks,
