Jane Chen, CEO and co-founder of Embrace innovations explained, "We've been at it for eight years and have now helped approximately 150,000 babies across 10 countries. The goal is to help 1 million babies, but like with a lot of projects, funding is an issue. That's one of the reasons behind us launching Little Lotus. Many people have come up to me and said, 'if I saw a baby in need I would do anything to help that child, especially after I became a mother.' If you buy any product from Little Lotus, an Embrace infant warmer will be sent to a needy baby in the developing countries.
