{Edna Adan Mother's Day Project}

Living On Love's Lacy collaborated with Jennifer of Hello Cheeseburger to bring to us this one of a kind Mother's Day print. The best part about this project is that half of the proceeds from the prints will be donated to The Edna Adan University Hospital in Somaliland.

Here's a bit from their site:
"The health of the people of Somaliland is among the worst in Africa, with one of the highest Maternal and Infant Mortality rates in the world. Every year, one baby in eight dies in infancy while nearly 4000 Somali women die in childbirth. This tragedy can be attributed in large part to the long civil war which brought about the death or departure of nearly all of the country’s trained health care professionals."

The university is doing their best to make change in Somaliland. They're working to train fully-qualified health care professionals, midwives and to fight the practice of Female Genital Mutilation. With the purchase of this print you could help them in their battle.

I don't know about you, but I'm swooning over this print. I just know my mom would love these beautiful watercolor florals. And then there's me, you know, the beautiful thing that she created. Why wouldn't she want something to remind her of that every day. In all seriousness, I plan to purchase one to give to my mother on Mother's Day. She deserves to be celebrated, as do all of the women and mothers around the world. I would also like to possibly purchase one for myself, for whatever future endeavors we may have. I can't help but have the urge to hang this in a nursery, although we don't have one. Maybe I should purchase one for one of my friends. This would really be a lovely gift for an expectant mother. You know who else would love this? My mother-in-law. 

The prints are available for purchase at StoreEnvy.
Prints are $30 with free shipping and will arrive with 3-5 business days of order.
Half of all the proceeds will be donated to Edna Adan University Hospital.

Lacy and Jennifer have really brought us something beautiful to share with our loved ones to make a difference in this world and to bring change to those who desperately need it. Lets help them save lives, why don't we?
Purchasing this print would be the very best, but even if you could use your voice, that we be greatly appreciated. Pin this page, share this post on Facebook or tweet this project to your followers. Be sure to use hashtag #Give2EdnaAdan when tweeting.
