The supermodel, Every Mother Counts founder and mom of two shares her finds exclusively with PEOPLE
Christy Turlington Burns's Mother's Day Picks
Even though Mother's Day won't look like it usually does this year, the supermodel says she will be starting the day the same way she always does: "With yoga or a run!"
The mom of two — she shares Grace, 16, and Finn, 14, with husband Edward Burns — is focused on motherhood year-round, as the founder of Every Mother Counts, a charity dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for mothers around the world.
Every Mother Counts celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2020, so Turlington Burns tells PEOPLE she plans to spend Mother's Day hosting an EMCLive! program to commemorate the anniversary, followed by a Zoom call with her mom and sisters.
Here, she shares her top gifts ideas for mothers of all ages, including picks that give back to women in need.

A Gift That Gives Back
For gifters looking for a way to give back this Mother's Day, Turlington Burns suggests the female-focused charity she founded in 2010.
“I started Every Mother Counts ten years ago and while we’ve made progress globally, maternal mortality rates in the U.S. are the worst they’ve been in a generation," she says. "Making pregnancy and childbirth safe for all moms, especially during these unprecedented times, has never been more urgent.”
