Consider your daily diet and that of your children. Now consider living on less than $2 a day. Can you imagine how you would survive and feed your family?

Shockingly, over 2/3 of women live on less than $2 a day, and over 40% of women globally are anemic. Malnutrition in pregnancy increases the risk for serious complications, low birth rate and maternal and infant mortality.

Circle of Health International (COHI) helps women and children all around the world in times of crisis. Right now is the second annual In Her Shoes Campaign. The challenge is to adopt the diet of a mom in a developing country for three days.

Create your own crowdfunding page to increase awareness and to raise funds. All money raised will go towards COHI’s current maternal and newborn healthcare programs in Syria, Nepal, Haiti, Texas and Sierra Leone.

Have a health problem? Pregnant? Too busy to find the time to change your diet right now? You can still get involved. There is an Alternative Challenge option available, plus donating $60 will feed a woman for an entire month!
