Every Woman Counts!

And, that’s the goal of Count the Kicks.

We know when every pregnant woman counts, we’ll help save babies.

Every year, we come together to celebrate women and Count the Kicks’ progress in saving babies at our Every Woman Counts fundraising luncheon.

Our goal is to make the event the attendees’ best 1 1⁄2 hours of their day, maybe even their week.

With the help of table captains and corporate sponsors, Every Woman Counts pulls together 1,000 guests, mainly women, for a fundraising luncheon dedicated to honoring, thanking, inspiring, supporting and encouraging women and moms.

The 2017 Every Woman Counts luncheon was presented by Mercy Medical Center and took place on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, at the Iowa Events Center in downtown Des Moines. Our featured speaker was New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Macy Stafford of Hands Free Mama, Hands Free Life and Only Love Today. Rachel is a certified special education teacher who inspires people to let go of meaningless distractions and engage in meaningful connections. Rachel’s work has been featured on CNN, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Global News, TIME.com, FoxNews.com, and countless other print and online media sources. Rachel loves being outdoors, baking, and volunteering with her husband and two daughters who inspire her daily. For inspiration to live better and love more, go to www.handsfreemama.com.
