And hey! Zoe Organics is offering A la Mama readers a 25% off discount code. Because Zoe Organics uses Paypal, which does not have a feature for using promo codes, enter ALAMAMA in the “notes to seller” during checkout. After the sale is complete, Zoe Organics will immediately issue a refund for the amount of the discount back to you.
10% of all sales made on the Zoe Organics website is donated to the White Ribbon Alliance, “an international coalition bound together by a common goal: to ensure that pregnancy and childbirth are safe for all women and newborns in every country around the world.” Read Heather’s letter below to learn more about this amazing organization.
After having beautiful pregnancies and birth experiences of my own, I became a doula, so that I could help to educate and support women on their own journeys to motherhood. After completing doula training with DONA International, I interned with South Coast Midwifery & Women’s Health Center in Irvine, California. I had the pleasure of working with South Coast Midwifery for a year before launching Zoe Organics.
Zoe Organics was also birthed from my passion for motherhood, with the creation of our first two organic, eco-conscious skin care lines, designed for children and mothers (our line for pregnancy and new moms is scheduled to launch Fall 2010).
Zoe means “Life” and more specifically, “Life as God intended”. Our mission is to celebrate and protect the lives of our children, family, community and planet. Passion for human rights issues, especially with regard to women and children, has always burned inside of me. Over the years, I have become increasingly aware of the inexcusably high rate of maternal mortality and morbidity across the globe.
According to statistics, a woman dies giving birth every MINUTE somewhere around the world. Even worse, most of these deaths could be prevented! The loss of our mothers has a devastating effect on our families and communities.
•Every year, an additional 2 million babies become maternal orphans
•The long-term implications on a child’s education, care and health are grave
•A mother’s role is vital to the economic well-being of a family and community
Throughout my research, I have compiled a list of extraordinary organizations dedicated to ending unnecessary maternal mortality and morbidity around the world. My goal is to help bring awareness to this urgent topic and give of our own resources.
Zoe Organics is partnering with the White Ribbon Alliance by donating ten percent (10%) of each purchase made on our website to their efforts of raising awareness and promoting safe motherhood.
The White Ribbon Alliance is an international coalition bound together by a common goal: to ensure that pregnancy and childbirth are safe for all women and newborns in every country around the world.
Please join Zoe Organics in fighting to save the lives of our mothers and children. Health is a Human Right.
