Christy Turlington Burns has long ago proven she is more than a pretty face. She has founded the charity, Every Mother Counts that works to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, and most recently, become the face of the Apple Watch.
We love it when models find their passion, their own voice. In this case, Christy has definitely leveraged her name for an amazing cause and happy she’s able to merge fashion with technology while spotlighting an amazing cause. For this reason, she deserves our Otter Pick of the Week.
#Tbt to 1989, when I last ran in Kenya, Africa for @Voguemagazine. On 3/1, I’ll run in Africa again for @EveryMomCounts in the Kilimanjaro Half Marathon in Tanzania – where our story began while filming “No Woman No Cry.” Why are we running? Because millions of mothers live too far away from skilled care & supplies, making it hard to ensure a safe birth outcome. We run so that moms don’t have to run while trying to reach critical care – which is their human right. Please consider supporting me & my teammates so that EMC can continue to support programs around the world that address 3 barriers for pregnant women; education, transportation and supplies.
