In our ongoing partnership with Every Mother Counts, we have the privilege of supporting an incredible organization that helps women and girls on a worldwide scale. Their cause is poor maternal health (a phenomenon that’s both pandemic and highly-preventable) and the fight to end it is made up by EMC-ers in-the-field and initiatives undertaken by their network of ambassadors.
Enter: Fynn Graham-Nye, the most ambitious 10 year old you’ll read about today, and the intrepid star of EMC’s latest campaign, “Every family Counts.” Starting with the simple realization that he just couldn’t “imagine growing up without a mom,” Fynn decided to take action in a big way. Right now, he and his mom Kim are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise awareness and cash for EMC, sung to the tune of $10,000.
This month, EMC is featuring Fynn’s journey as part of their “Every Family Counts” campaign, with the idea that pre- and post-natal health is so much more than a women’s issue. In reality, the matter of maternal health and welfare is genderless, not to mention a critical component to healthy families, communities and culture alike, so sons like Fynn getting proactive is a cause for celebration and support.
Join us and EMC in getting the Graham-Nyes to the top by donating to their Crowdrise fundraiser page, then spreading the word to your friends and loved-ones. Really, it can be easy as making his story your next Facebook update. Of course, there are plenty of great ways to support Fynn; whether that’s turning your family “Swear Jar” into your Crowdrise contribution, or just tweeting about the 10 year old alpinist with a heart of gold, know that any route is a right one!
