As the season of giving approaches, the team here at Asha Patel Designs has committed to giving back to a cause that we’ve rallied around and supported individually since its start.

That cause is Every Mother Counts.

Every Mother Counts is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. Every Mother Counts informs, engages and mobilizes new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. Every Mother Counts supports programs in Bangladesh, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Syria, Tanzania, Uganda, and the United States that address three critical barriers to maternal health care: lack of education, transportation and supplies. 

Now, through December 31, 2018 20% of proceeds from online sales of the Moonstone Mighty Mini will be donated to Every Mother Counts. 

This season, we're celebrating making a difference to us, you, and women you’ve yet to meet.
