Fashion Channel —— Christy Turlington is opposed to the celebration of Mother's Day: How many ad hoc holidays, has become an excuse to fatten the pockets of jewelers, perfumeries, and florists a way to pay tribute to mothers gratitude for the role.
But is not the consuminsmo linked to the party that wants to fight Christy is the reality of which we speak so little, he sees more than 360 thousand women die in childbirth every year, especially in less developed PAEI. The Turlington, with the No Mother's Day and the foundation she created Every Mother Counts, aims to change things or at least to give the phenomenon the importance it deserves.
The children of Grace and Finn call Christy: have the good fortune of having a woman as a mother very active in social issues, a degree in art history, classical, combative, determined and of course beautiful and a true knack for business.
Known more for being, along with Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Helena Christensen, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford, one of the most famous supermodels of the nineties, Christy has also posed nude for PETA animal rights causes.
To all the mothers of the world Christy makes an invitation: Sunday, May 13 did not respond to the sms cards, do not accept flowers, perfumes and gifts, do not go to the restaurant, not celebratory exchanged links on social networks. Literally disappeared from circulation: your absence, as women and as mothers, you realize how your role accounts and is important not only within the strictly family, but at the most global and general. That's the ultimate meaning of the No Mother's Day.
The other absence that Christy wants to bring out is that, heartless and tragic, hundreds of thousands of women who die each year trying to become mothers: The day of Mother's Day will die a thousand women, is one of the slogans of the campaign, which sees protagonists including actresses Jennifer Connelly and Debra Messing. Instead of the usual scented soap Christy invites us to give our mothers a donation to the foundation Every Mother Counts in their name: it is a small gesture that will make them happy, and may help women less fortunate than us to realize the dream of a lifetime!
