A warming blanket to save millions of newborn babies worldwide

Fifteen million hypothermic babies are born every year around the world, including three million who die during the first month of life. Embrace has developed a tiny sleeping bag with proprietary technology that stabilizes the temperature of the newborn for 1.5 percent of the cost of regular incubator. The non-profit has reached just under 150,000 infants in 105 countries, and needs all the help it can get ramping up its reach. Hence the recent creation of its social for-profit arm: for each Little Lotus swaddle blanket bought in the first world, a Warmer will be given to a hospital or a family in a developing country. A remarkable story in progress.
