## Celebrating the International Day of the Girl Child
Today we celebrate the [International Day of the Girl Child](http://www.un.org/en/events/girlchild/). Launched by the United Nations, October 11th has been designated as a day to recognize the strides being made on behalf of girls everywhere. This day isn’t strictly about Maternal Health, quite to the contrary. Day of the Girl Child rolls together important issues such as: illiteracy, child marriage, school dropout, gender based violence, and more. The team at Maternova loudly applauds those working to make our girls safer and smarter. Thank you for all you do everyday for women!
While we’re celebrating new beginnings, we want to let you know about a very exciting new purchasing model! We know many of you have been frustrated by order quantity minimums on our Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment (NASG) and Micro-nutrient products. As you can imagine, we immediately went to the manufacturers to see how we can help you get the products you need. A solution has finally been found! Anyone who is familiar with ‘Groupon’ knows that the lowest price options are given to the largest orders. Maternova will now group your orders and submit them for production when the quota is reached.
### How does this benefit you?
* Access to products that previously had to be ordered in minimum 1,000,000 units. This made them nearly impossible to get for most organizations
* The best possible price! We want to save you money, and by negotiating this arrangement, you will reduce out of pocket expenses, in some cases by 50%.
* Your order will still ship directly to you.
It wasn’t easy, but the negotiating strength of some committed women can produce great outcomes. If you would like to learn more, sign up, or request pricing -- contact us today! firstname.lastname@example.org
