In addition to selling the loveliest things available online, Minted does some wonderfully supportive things (and I don’t just mean supporting your local awesome Disney weddings contest!). They’re heavily involved with Every Mother Counts, a campaign that supports women around the world by reducing maternal mortality.
From their website:
Minted loves moms.
We donate a portion of all art sales to Every Mother Counts.
Minted is a community-led company. We source artwork from artists around the world, our community votes to curate what we sell, and artists receive commissions on all sales.
Every Mother Counts is an advocacy and mobilization campaign founded by Christy Turlington Burns to increase education and support for maternal mortality reduction globally. A woman dies every 90 seconds around the world from complications of pregnancy. 90% of these deaths are preventable. Every Mother Counts seeks to engage new audiences to better understand the challenges and the solutions while encouraging them to take action to improve the lives of girls and women worldwide.
Talented female designers are the lifeblood of Minted’s community, and we are proud to support EMC as an organization that respects mothers as much as we do. Minted is supporting Every Mother Counts in its mission to protect global maternal health by donating 2% of proceeds from all works of art.
