EVERY MOTHER COUNTS
Two months ago, I have decided to donate half of all of my online sales of “SWEEP” album to Every Mother Counts Foundation, a charity ran by Christy Thurlington, which aims to prevent pregnancy and birth-related death of mothers around the globe, by providing expecting women the access to basic healthcare units.
Today, I found out that this very foundation has selected me as their Spotlight Artist for their Music For Good campaign. Music For Good is a movement organized by the Reverbnation music platform and several charity foundations, where artists can offer half of their sales to support an organization of their choice.
The current world statistics on this matter are quite defeating: about 1000 deaths a day. One woman every 90 seconds, meaning about 2-3 pregnant ladies per song of mine. The saddest thing is that most of these deaths could be prevented, if only there were even elemental health providers accessible to expecting mothers.
As this shock still has to sit in, I struggle to find words to explain the way I feel now. It is a mixture of gratitude, disbelief and letting go.
Especially because the problem Every Mother Counts foundation is addressing is something I have deeply at heart. Here on Earth, the things touch you the best when you’ve been there yourself.
You see, the fact you are listening to SWEEP now is also possible because once upon a time, Miss Stereochemistry was lucky enough to have a great hospital around the corner, with a great medical team to help her through the hardest day of her life.
If you wonder where my children are, listen to the “Archive Box” and “SWEEP” and you will find them there.
Sometimes we are helpless and can’t do anything to change the things that are happening to us. Finding a sense to life afterwards, and giving these things a meaning can prove to be a quite challenging task.
Therefore, I find it hard to explain by words what it feels to know that maybe my action will help someone else. Knowing that somewhere, somehow, I can actually do and change something, together with thousands of other amazing people. The fact that I got the chance to bring about the change through making music leaves me speechless and makes me feel so small in way.
I would therefore love to invite you all to join our mission. You can support our cause by either downloading “SWEEP” tracks at my Music For Good page or making a direct donation to Every Mother Counts! The cost is 1,29 $ (USD) per song.
Deepest thanks from the bottom of my heart go to Reverbnation music platform for organizing the Music For Good action in the first place, and of course to Every Mother Counts, for allowing me to be a drop in the ocean of change for the best.
