A World Without Moms: Happy Mother’s Day

Some of my classmates have been asking me how they can be in the next Jubilee Project video. Thanks to them, I was able to get a lot of great responses and stories that they shared about their moms. One goal for this video was to capture a raw and genuine spectrum of voices that spoke to just how much moms mean to each individual.

Personally, I feel so lucky because my mom has always been there for me, pouring all of herself into loving and caring for me, which I know at times can be very hard work. Whether it’s juggling work and driving me around to school, rehearsals and sports games, checking in on me while I’m sleeping to make sure that I still have a blanket on, or doing everything she could to get me the best education possible, my mom is my greatest hero and model for sacrificial and unconditional love.

And I love her with all my heart.

The Jubilee Project made this video to honor moms around the world because we were inspired by the love and care we received from our own moms.

Moms mean a lot to all of us. Yet, every year 7 million women are injured and 350,000 women die from complications due to childbirth. These deaths, however, are preventable by providing basic maternal health care.

For every view that we get on this video, Jubilee Project sponsors will donate a penny to Every Mother Counts, an organization dedicated to improving maternal health in developing countries. Together, let’s help build a world where children won’t have to live without moms.

You can help moms in a few ways:

1. Share this video with your friends and of course your mom to let her know how much she means to you.

2. Become a sponsor of the video and pledge to donate a penny per view to Every Mother Counts. Email project.jubilee@gmail.com to sign up.
