What kind of world do you want for your family in 2030? We asked celebrities, experts, and moms and dads around the world that question. Their collective answers moved us, excited us, and left us with hope and optimism for the future.Presented by Johnson & Johnson
The Global Moms Relay is one of my favorite HuffPost traditions, a collaborative effort to tap into our collective gratitude and love, not only for our own mothers, but for all mothers around the world. This year's theme is "What kind of world do you want for your family in 2030?" And we're using the HuffPost platform to bring more and more voices into this conversation and harness the power of social media for good.
Every girl and woman should be in charge of her health and her future. Yet according to the United Nations, approximately 800 women die every day from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. Most of these deaths are preventable -- a clear sign that we have a lot of work to do to ensure that women have the tools they need to stay healthy.
Women have come a long way in developed and developing countries, but significant gaps remain. We believe that mobile technology will go a long way in helping us close those gaps, empowering women with information, services and ultimately, confidence, that will help them best care for themselves, and their families.
Sunday is Mother's Day, and there's no better time to join the movement to improve the health and well-being of mothers and babies everywhere. That's the goal of the Global Moms Relay. In partnership with the UN Foundation, Johnson & Johnson and BabyCenter, HuffPost is putting the spotlight on the ways we can bring new opportunities to women and children around the world.
