It’s THROWBACK THURSDAY! Looking back on October 7, 2013, model and global maternal health advocate Christy Turlington Burns co-hosted with Calvin Klein Underwear an intimate event supporting the non-profit organization “Every Moth Counts” (EMC) which coincidentally Ms. Turlington Burns founded.
The event featured an engaging conversation between Turlington Burns and Glamour’s Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive, and took place at the Macy’s Herald Square flagship store in New York City.
Held in Macy’s new Stella 34 Trattoria, the evening focused on Turlington Burns’ work as the founder of EMC and the important work they do to make childbirth safe for all mothers.
Notable guests in attendance at the event included Cheryl Abel-Hodges, President of Calvin Klein Underwear, and Kevin Carrigan, Global Creative Director of Calvin Klein platinum label, Calvin Klein white label, Calvin Klein Jeans & Calvin Klein Underwear. To further support and promote EMC, Macy’s also made a charitable donation to the organization.
As announced, Calvin Klein, Inc. has entered a unique partnership with EMC to extend their existing relationships and create a multiplatform program designed to broaden awareness of EMC’s mission.
The global multi-pronged initiative will be seen in print, outdoor, and online, as well as include fundraising opportunities to improve the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide through EMC supported programs in the U.S., Haiti, Uganda and Indonesia in their effort to avert preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world.
Every Mother Counts is a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world. Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide.
