Whether we have seen this beauty rocking the runways, magazine covers, or music videos, she has always been in the public's eye. But now supermodel Christy Turlington has caught our attention through her philanthropic work.
Christy directed the documentary No Woman No Cry, which tells the stories of at-risk pregnant women in four parts of the world. This documentary is part of the Every Mother Counts campaign, which works to prevent avoidable maternal deaths and injuries. Christy is a huge advocate for solving the maternal mortality crisis and is a voice for all women. She said in the Huffington Post, "Women die because they cannot access the same simple, effective medical care that saved my life when I began to hemorrhage after the birth of my daughter. One of the most frustrating realities that I discovered is that underlying all of this is the tragic fact that women lack equitable status, rendering them voiceless and powerless. Why should the lives of some women be valued and others not? Such disparities in health care baffle me."
But will Christy's ability to "strike a pose" and give back to others win her the Do Something Award? The choice is up to you. Vote now!
