Christy Turlington Burns Designs Baby Accessories for Every Mother CountsOct 11, 2012 @ 5:32 pm
Christy Turlington Burns teamed up with Ergobaby to create a collection of baby accessories benefitting her charity, Every Mother Counts. “They understand the importance of the bonding between a mother and child,” Turlington Burns told InStyle.com of why she got involved at the launch of the collection. The idea is in line with her non-profit, which raises awareness for maternal health and aims to reduce maternal mortality worldwide. The collection includes two carriers, a diaper bag, and a purse, each featuring an “Umbra” fabric created by a designer from Togo, Africa and a message saying “my mom counts.” “To create something that was special and inspired by some of the countries with the worst statistics was really important,” she added. “I almost want to have a baby again to go through enjoying what these things do!” The items are now available on store.ergobaby.com, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Every Mother Counts.
