Did you know we have a World Mom on board who is very active in running the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia? Sarah Hughes in the USA, has organized a walk each year for the past 5 years and has raised 10’s of thousands of dollars for the Preeclampsia Foundation.
What lit the fire under her to get things started? Check out her initial post for World Moms Blog in 2012 about her experience with preeclampsia, which can be fatal in pregnant mothers worldwide. The symptoms are high blood pressure and protein in the urine. For more about preeclampsia, head on over to the Preeclampsia Foundation.
And if you’re on twitter, join us tonight to help us raise awareness or maybe just grab a great giveaway from Happy Super Foods or Udderly Smooth for the cause! 😉
The hashtag is #PreAm16. You can follow along by doing a search on Twitter for that hashtag anytime during or after the party. To join in the chat, come during party time — 9pm EDT. I will be on Twitter along with some of our World Moms. Hope to see you there!
Can’t make the party? It’s not too late to donate to Sarah’s upcoming Promise Walk for Preeclampsia this weekend!
