Make Your Gift Count - EMC's Guide to Holiday Gifts that Give Back
Many of us are looking at the holidays with a new perspective this year. We love giving gifts to our friends and families, and we want to make our gifts more meaningful than ever. We want every gift to count, inspire and reflect our hopes and wishes for those who will receive them. We want to use our gift budget to invest in making a difference.
We’re hoping this year’s EMC gift guide will help you do all that. We’ve been working with our partners on a collection of beautiful presents for the people on your list. A portion of every purchase you make will be donated to Every Mother Counts and we’ll make sure that donation goes directly to helping save mothers’ lives around the world. If you’ve already finished shopping, but still want to support us, you can make a donation here. Thanks for letting us be part of your holiday season and for making Every Gift Count.
